sigh This is breath taking Christiaan! What a beautiful place to reflect and get back in tune with Mother Earth
Thanks! :) The photo makes it look more that way than it actually was.
I agree – breath taking it is… this is so exquisite – I love it! Sensational work!
PS: Thanks for commenting on “To Highway”… also what is HDR…? I know Alexkess uses it alot as well…?
This certainly does have a feel of peace and serenity! Wonderful depth!
Thanks Paul and Mel :) Your comments mean a lot to me!
HDR = High Dynamic Range photos. This means, combining 3 exposures, or more, into one. I use Photomatix to make the HDR out of the 3 photos. You can get a free trial at www.hdrsoft.com.
HDR can be used in many different ways, as you will have noticed. Alexkess uses it differently than I do.
Great photo Christiaan!
Also Paul HDR lets you be able to see the shadows and the bright parts of photos in the one image as it combines dark and bright exposures.
fantastic effect here. such vivid colours. i really like this HDR technique.
Unreal shot love it !
Thanks for the comments everyone!
Jason, yes youre right, allthough in this case I could have used a polarizer filter, if I would have had my DSLR back then already. Since I didnt have either the DSLR or the filter, there was no other way to get the blue sky except HDR. HDR also contributed to the softness of the grass. I even made the shadows a bit darker again in photoshop eventually.
wow this is really nice breathtaking for sure
