Been having a few comments on a couple of photos which turned out to both be taken on 1 November 2013. It was just 3 weeks after getting this new camera of mine last year, and around 7 PM with fantastic sunset sky conditions, I was around the Alexandra Fountain testing things out.
Anyway I’ve decided to revisit that shoot and see what else I could come up with. What a better time to test out this new Lightroom Preset called “Punchy HDR”. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, and these presets are just emulators of true HDR . . . it’s not actually the real thing. This one called “Punchy HDR” really brings everything out in an eye popping fashion. However, so much so that things can tend to look a bit grainy when done, if one zooms into the image.
Still it allows for quite a different look and feel to a photograph. In a way its like turning photography into Digital Art. So I have made a new Gallery called “Punchy HDR Fountain” – if you check out the Menu above. The images rotate through at 9 second intervals so as to allow time to see what they are all about. There are 31 in total, from that evening on 1 November last year. I think a few of them look pretty good. At the very least they are interesting to look at, and I think the best situation for this is when you find the perfect sunset sky when taking your photography as was found nearly a year ago.
