What a week, and it’s only Tuesday!!
I’m posting this pic for a bit of fun, to wind down from a particularly challenging day and to play with my new ‘toy’… HDR (High Dynamic Range) Software called Photomatix.
I first read about it on the Stuck in Customs blog by Trey Ratcliff (http://www.stuckincustoms.com/trey-ratcliff/). His work and the business he’s built around it is inspiring stuff.
This photo is of a facade I shot in New Orleans on the drive to Tucson from Florida 8 months ago. The HDR effect brings out the character of the stones and brickwork to full effect.
To me, it definitely looks haunted!
I can’t wait to try out the software on different images to see what effects it can create. I’ll be testing them out on you, so I hope you like them.
