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.
