HDR and back light – wallpaper “Gloriette”
One great situation to use the HDR technique is when having backlight. In this picture here I used 5 brackets +/- 1EV. I could have used seven or nine brackets, but then the effect would have been gone. I threw in a polarizing filter and my trusted Sigma 10-20mm to catch the magic beauty. I…
Wallpaper: “Sunset on Vienna”
Facebook is a bitch. I am one of those people who randomly post their pictures on facebook. And I am one of these people who want their pictures to be seen – I consider them art and not instances of reality. So if somebody asks for a wallpaper I cannot say no. This might explain…
Strong wind timelapse
I used the Magic Lantern again to create a timelapse. But the clouds were so fast (stormy wind) that I had to slow down the framerate to 15 fps. See for yourself. It is still very fast…
HDR photowalk with a fisheye
After I installed the Christmas edition of the Magic Lantern I had to do something. With a fisheye and some ideas I went away and with some nice pictures I came back. I also learned something: With a fisheye you have to be extra careful about the borders of your image. The first one is a…
Shallow depth of field
Shallow depth of field can be beautiful. But the problem with such a focus is that the real focus can be hard to find in the view finder. Magic lantern can assist in finding the focus.

Different shades of green
Different shades of green, a photo by stst31415 on Flickr. This is another picture made with HDR Efex and Magic Lantern. The shots were older but HDR technique helped her to bring out the different greens.
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…
Sunset – Things learned from HDR
Sunset, a photo by stst31415 on Flickr. I love the subtle tones of orange of sunsets and HDR definitely gives me the option to pack them into a picture. I used 9 brackets in this one and added some glamour glow effect to emphasize the warmth. Sometimes it is a good idea not to overdo…
