Build your own view

What I like in modern architecture is the fact that you have gazillions of reflections. If you look at the pictures you sometimes start building your own views.

By using the HDR method one can reveal lots of details in the reflection. It were so many details that I had to apply some retro colouring and minimize the contrasts in parts of the picture to make it look real.

Faded train romance without trains

I have been on the tracks for you last weekend. I enjoy making the HDRs look nice first and then give them a faded look lately. And I think that I finally get where I want with the colors. I used brackets of three exposures using Magic Lantern.

Wide angle HDR

The HDR process seems to be also a wonderful way to reuse that ultra wide angle lens I own. Typically the heavy distortions make nice pictures impossible, so you have to use some arty technique to make them bearable for the viewer. I still love the manipulation of depth and the compression of background. The picture above is made from 9 exposures at f/16 and 10mm with HDR Efex Pro.

For other pictures created with magic lantern look at these posts.
