I guess I needed a little break as it’s been awhile since my last post. Now I am going to catch up! Back in May I went on a camera club field trip to visit some of the bridges up in New York City along with stops to the seaport area and a spot that had a great view of Manhattan. Unfortunately the light was overcast and the sky was uninteresting. Something needed to be done to spice things up so I bracketed some shots to create HDR images. It helped to make the scenes a bit more dramatic than they appeared in reality. (‘VZ Bridge’ and ‘Across the River’ are both HDR images.) I also practiced my panoramas. The ‘DUMBO Pano’ combines 9 shots. (DUMBO stands for Down Under the Brooklyn and Manhattan Overpasses.) ‘Big Apple Panorama’ is over 100 inches long at hi resolution … big enough for a mural!
