HDR- Palm Tree

I wanted to bring out the detail and the highlights in the center of the palm tree, so I shot this tree in 3 exposures.  +2, 0, -2, handheld.

I then combined the images in Photoshop to make a HDR image.  The tree has a little glow to it.  I think it gives it a warmth.  Makes you feel as if you are lying on the beach looking up at the palm.

Pelican

Something to get over the mid-week hump.

A pelican walks into the drug store.  He asks for a tube of chap-stick and tells the cashier to “put it on my bill”. lol.

This was taken just North of Key West, FL. along the beach.  He was nice enough to allow me to get close enough for the picture.

Horse Jumping with Effects

I wanted to play a little with this image.  I used a few different effect filters.  After trying many, I went with edge find, burn edges, comic style.

What do you think? Is it over done?  Be honest, you won’t hurt my feelings, much.

HDR- Warehouse Walkway

This was taken inside the distribution center (DC) of a major computer retailor.

Sometimes HDR is overdone and sometimes it is what is needed for the image.  I really like the way this image turned out.  What do you think?  I like the leading and the repeating lines.

This is a 3 exposure, 2 stop HDR image.
