All Paths Lead to the Ocean IV

All Paths Lead to the Ocean IV
Well, hello all. My apologies for not blogging in a while. My life was very busy there for a while and I will blog about that later. I just thought I'd share today's art project. I took one of my older photos and revamped it in HDR. This is a process called High Dynamic Range. I use a fantastic program called Photomatix Pro to process my photos. The idea is to take a photo with 3 different exposures and then process it with this software package and end up with a, well, dynamic, photo. It is possible to cheat though, you can use the same photo 3 times in the software and have the software change the exposure settings for you. I love HDR photos. Google the term if you want to find more samples. There is a trick to applying HDR processing. Some artists tend to overprocess their photos and the results can be disastrous. Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

p.s., this is Dundarave Beach in West Vancouver, B.C.

Stunning again! That's here, really, sometimes it doesn't feel like we live that close to the ocean!
