Green Dreams

Been wandering around in Burnham Beeches with my camera again, indulging in a bit of HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography. The results were further processed using the “Orton effect”. In the slide show there are both some of the original tone-mapped HDR images and their ortonised variants.

George Bush’s big chopper flew low over the Beeches, I don’t know what the Secret Service thought about the bloke below, wandering around with a tripod as big as a shoulder-launched missile under his arm, but at least they didn’t launch a pre-emptive strike.

  1. Awws you were probably showing them a polite sign, they are used to those these days. Stunning HDR work, CS3? *bows to the pro*

  2. Thanks. HDR in Photomatix Pro, Orton and other fettling in Photoshop Elements (can’t afford CS3)

    Actually I went overboard as I was using ND grad filters and circular polarising filters as well as HDR.

  3. Sounds like you were having fun šŸ˜€ I am yet to try my hand with HDR current surroundings are not really all that inspiring lol – will have to check out that software!

  4. Loving that Orton effect!

    Bush was too busy dissing Obama to see the clear threat on the ground …

  5. You can get the same effect in Real Life, by going out into the woods, and drinking a lot of wine (or beer) or eating the funny mushrooms.

  6. That reminds me of a late night walking through the Berkeley Rose Gardens, which had suddenly morphed into something from the Wizard of Oz.
