    Re: My photos and thought process behind the image

    You inspired me to fool around with HDR again. Other than the that setting lending itself to the process, there wasn't a lot of "thought" behind this photo; I just like the way it came out.

    Great stuff, Curt-particularly like the foreground( with reflection) & background water effects. Using Photomatix? Care to give any camera details etc?

    Nice shot!

    Mine was shot with a Canon 550D, using a Canon EF-S 10~22mm @ 10mm.

    It's a single exposure, processed as a Photomatix "pseudo" HDR.

    Great work Curt and Khun Don.

    Both of these shots are true HDR images, The first is made from 5 exposures with camera supported on a traffic barrier, the second is from 3 hand-held exposures. Both processed with Photomatix.

    Curt, Khun Don and guava, great shots, very impressive, I have not played around with HDR but after seeing these I will look into it, well done guys.

    Curt,

    I know nothing about the technical processing of this photograph, but the product is brilliant! There are two things I like best about it: the painting-like quality and the color harmony.

    What makes it look like a painting is the hazy rendering of the waterway and of the reflections on it. It counterbalances the propensity for clearly-defined details, like in the treatment of the stairs (Oh, I love those stairs!), the clutter under the house, and the roof overhang on the right.

    I am not sure how much technical intervention has been done on the color scheme. But to me this is the best attribute of this picture. The predominance of brown hues-sienna, umber, auburn- gives a somber atmosphere. However, that dark ambience is somewhat relieved by the sky blue boat in the foreground, which is the focal point of the whole photo. Light blue is cool on the eyes and contrasts very well with brown. The watercraft is made more interesting with the multicolor stripes on its front side. And the way the vessel is planted on the light sepia waterway which stands in the middle of the picture also helps lighten the intensity of brown tints. Again, blue is echoed on the shirt of a man, on a few more blotches on the left, and on the farthest end of the horizon--bringing a well-integrated color harmony.
