Although I’ve been publishing a bit of B+W lately I always find myself drawn back to HDR. I really like to be creative with the colors, tones, details, etc. when tonemapping. Some people say that tonemapping is just a cover up for a mediocre photo. And many times I can’t say as if I disagree, even with my own photos.
This shot is not one of them. Many times I rush to post something regardless of the quality just to get something on the blog. I’m trying to minimize that for you viewers. This shot I’ve worked on for quite some time and I’ve held off posting to make sure it’s just right.
What do you think? Would love to hear your honest thoughts.
3 shots tonemapped in Photomatix and finished in lightroom with some dodging and burning.
