Images of a Big Island

It ain’t over ’til the Fat Lady Sings!

I went up to Dingo Beach the other afternoon to get a range of images so I could test out a Plug-in for Lightroom by the name of L/R Enfuse. The plug-in is an HDR plug-in put together by Timothy Armes and is available from The Photographers Toolbox. I have never been a big fan of HDR as a lot of images look a little weird to me but that is just a personal taste.
So far the results look pretty good and I will be playing with it for a while to get the best out of it. Here is one of the images I came back with.

This shot nearly didn’t happen! I had been taking a range of images with a fairly un-inspiring sky. I wasn’t particularly worried as It was more about the process rather than the image this time. The sun had set and I waited for a while just in case. Judging that nothing was going to happen, I was in the process of packing up my gear when I looked up and noticed that a bit of colour was appearing in the clouds. Setting up my gear again I managed to get a couple of very nice images over the next 10 minutes.and it all faded as quickly as it had appeared!
The title of this post says it all!

    Nice work.

    I think that has happened to all of us from time to time.

    Nice result Tim, perhaps a tiny bit too light in the shadows for my liking, but I think I’m probably in the same court as you in regards to this sort of work in general.

    cheers,

    • I actually lightened up the shadow side of the mangroves. I don’t mind the result compared to a lot of HDR. Still a bit of fine tuning to go!

      Cheers Tony
