Waitress waiting by awefaul

Currently unavailable for purchase

At Hermanus a popular whale watching town a hour and a half’s drive from Cape Town but the waitress is probably looking out for the customers.

Featured The Magnum Prospects, 13/03/11

I gently persuaded some detail to come out in the shadows and highlights by combining three exposures (-2, -1, 0) with Photoshop CS5’s Merge to HDR Pro.

And more waiters, waiting

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.

    “harpoon the nearest one, bums on seats pay our wages”…

  • Thanks. I was just wondering if I shouldn’t enquire at the information desk if there is a restaurant that serves whale meat to see the expression… Will have to pretend that I am from another planet though.

    Great title!! You well succeeded in bringing out the details in the photo Faul. And it is done very subtle, I like that a lot

  • Thank you. The title is an ongoing series and I will post more soon. About HDR, have you seen this ? Click on the styles above and also use the slider at the bottom. Their manual is the one I used when I started and I must look at it again now that I have more experience. I like somewhere between the Dreamy Look and Photoreal and you would probably lean towards the Grungy.

    Lovely image – aye, it must be customers she looks for, those beasty whales are far to sea. :-)

  • Thanks. Yes, and the customers give tips.
