    nice, did you edit the photo by any means?
  3. macrumors regular


    That is an HDR with 3 exposures (-2,0,+2) merged with Photomatix Pro.

    Beautiful as always. :)

    Nice photos.

    That's amazing! It's actually still too bright and fake looking for my tastes, but I appreciate how well done it is. :) Normally I hate HDRs.

    Here's two photos. They're just normal photos, and look WAY better in Safari. Firefox really isn't very good for viewing photos. :rolleyes:

    here's what I think:

    -composition is not interesting
    -tree to right has glow around it
    -woods in the middle look super flat
    -colours are too over the top and uneven

    ^just my opinion, ignore if you like

    All the reasons above are why I think I like it haha. I'm a sucker for eye candy even if it is totally off from the reality of the photo.

    Thanks. Photography is very subjective, but based on feedback from many others, your comments are polar opposite to the majority. BTW, there is not a "glow" on the tree, that's light.... it was early SUNRISE.... I would suspect your monitor needs calibrated.

    It's called the "painterly look". I prefer this look when doing HDRs.

    I prefer that one, that's really good actually and if there was a larger image I'd use it as my desktop.
  11. macrumors Penryn


    Actually, he's right. There is a slight glow around certain parts of the image. However, I said I enjoyed your photo a lot, and one of the reasons is because the glow isn't bad at all. It's not very noticeable, and certainly not distracting.

    I still prefer my photos without the HDR treatment. I'd rather get one-in-a-million shots that rely mostly on luck and natural circumstance when it comes to lighting and situation, rather than make the situation more perfect than it was in reality.

    Well, I was there.. the light was as depicted...it was an uneven lit sky as it was early sunrise....
  13. macrumors Penryn


    Yeah, I'm sure you noticed every nuance of light in the entire scene before you took the photo.

    You better get some Amoxicillin for that cough! :)

    those are gorgeous! You've really managed to capture how colorful nature is :)
  16. macrumors G5


    Both are great photos. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Folks!

    Love both photos. Would use either as my desktop if you could get them to 1920 x 1200 (hint hint)...lol.

    Nice Photos!
  20. macrumors 68000


    I like it, but I think the glowing tree (and over saturated right half) takes away from the water on the left which adds more interest, for the eye to search into the distance. But I still like it :)
  21. macrumors 68040


    Damn, those are really nice pictures! I really wish I knew more about photography. All of the pictures I take always look so amateur-ish compared to ones I see on the net.

    Any chance of 'wallpaperizing' these?
