I got to spend a little time this evening going through some more of the pictures that I took last weekend. Many of the outdoors shots that I took, intending to process as HDR’s, aren’t working out so well since there was a good breeze while I was shooting and the bright green foilage produces lots of ghosting on the HDR image. I’ll probably get some good single-image prints out of them, though.
Last Sunday morning, my brother Mark and I hung around after church services were over so I could get some shots of the church where I grew up and where my Dad still pastors. I got just a few shots of the exterior before it started to pour down rain, and then I got some shots of the interior. So far, this one is my favorite of the ones I’ve processed:
This is an HDR from three bracketed shots (-2.0/0.0/+2.0), tripod-mounted, processed through Photomatix and the post-processed in PaintShop Pro X3. In Photomatix, I used the Detail Enhancement option, and also used the Medium light smoothing preset. The image shown above is a reduced size…it looks much better in full size. You can view the larger version on my Flicker site here.
I still have a lot more to go through, but I’m taking my time with them. Want to make the memories last, you know.
Wow that’s so awesome, I’ve never seen it look so beautiful! Great job!
Thanks, Courtney!! Glad you liked it! I have a couple more of the church that I haven’t processed yet, so stay tuned. I should have them posted in the next week or so. Love ya!
