Great EstudioChispa 2013-08-13 11:50


First, I still think your profile may be the best at TE. And yes, Coke>Pepsi and Chevy>Ford, but those others, we may need to debate... ;-)

I've been learning to spot the use of ND filters from some of the folks here, so may I ask whether you used one here? My half-knowledgeable estimation is that a full second at f/20 with a very slow ASA would not leave any light to need a filter to sop up. Also, something that has saturated these colors most wonderfully. Maybe Canon>Nikon after all... ;-)

Finally -- is the pavement wet? Nice touch!

Best regards,

Austin, Texas

Hello Russ:

This is actually a combination of 2 photos, no filters used. I locked the camera on a tripod and used various exposures to get the sky right in one shot and the building right in another. The pavement is not wet but I did brighten up the highlights in the pavement to keep it from going too dark. Finally, I use Photoshop plug-ins from Topaz Labs to enhance the photos.

Greetings from Florida....................Greg

Thank you for revealing the secret -- a two-shot HDR composition! HDR fascinates me -- but I have not been sufficiently patient to give it a serious try. I have read that -- in the near future! -- the camera will do this for us (i.e., multiple exposures at different settings in the blink of an eye with one push of the shutter). We'll see...
