Medieval alley


Medieval alley, a photo by stst31415 on Flickr.

What really fascinated me in this picture was that the method HDR could capture all the colors facets and texture and preserve them. That was not quite easy due to the different artificial light colors, varying from blue to orange.
Again the tipp by RC Concepcion I use often, is to use a Glamour Glow effect on HDR. It takes the unnatural sharpness out of the picture and gives it some nice appeal.
I started using the glamour glow (which was created for portraits) on some architecture pictures – not specifically HDR. It works just fine…
And again this shot was brought to you by Canon running Magic Lantern with 9 exposures, creation with HDR Efex by Nik Software and postprocessing with Color Efex (also by Nik Software).

If you are looking for a book specifically for the creation of HDR with HDR Efex and get some real nice postprocessing tips for HDR, read the HDR book by RC. There is great stuff inside.
