Thursday Arch Series

.
2011-09-18 Arch-Old Court House 1

The TAS returns. I sometimes think I've exhausted the possibilities but there are always variations on old themes. I have shot views like this from Kiener Plaza many times. This one is a three-shot HDR (from a tripod for a change) processed in Photoshop's HDR Pro, which is much more natural than the results from Photomatix. Then it was run through PhotoTools to get a sort of Holga-like effect. ISO 100 for clarity, f 7.1.

beau rendu HDR , je le trouve doux et pas trop exagéré comme beaucoup de HDR.

The HDR is beautifully done, not overdone as many tend to be. I actually wouldn't have noticed hadn't you told us (all right, I probably don't have a very perceptive eye).

Great treatment, and you kow how much I enjoy your TA series.

What do you mean by 3-shot HDR "FROM A TRIPOD FOR A CHANGE"? Don't you always use a tripod ????

What a brilliant shot Bob, so very clever to keep inventing new angles on this arch each a wonderful view.

Nice composition, Bob. Where did you add the vignette in the HDR process? I'm a total rookie with HDR stuff. Agree that it's not overcooked like most.

Oh my goodness, another Arch series wonder. I don't begin to understand what you've done but whatever it is, it's visually so effective.
