Rocky forest path  by awefaul

Currently unavailable for purchase


This path on the way to a waterfall in the botanical gardens near Betty’s Bay isn’t a place where I would have thought to take pictures before my introduction to tone mapping. The result is a combination of five RAW pictures from -2 to +2 EVs. I did not play with it a lot in Photomatix and it might even be the ‘natural’ preset. Further work in Photoshop produced this picture that I find fascinating although it might not be very popular. At first glance it is a completely abstract pattern of greens and brown, but on closer inspection the very realistic landscape emerge with great depth in the upper right corner and moss on the rocks.

Digital photography is doing for photography what the piano did for keyboard music. You can still play music composed for the harpsichord on the piano but not the other way around.

    I know what you mean about garish.

    This HDR works really great in that it was taken near when the sun was high yet still can capture all the detail. It look much like the eye would see
