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 why the picture looks like it is. 

10mm have a very distinct look of its own and when you turn it into an HDR and apply the usual suspects: Contrast treatment, some glow, slight color shifting and some other lightroom thingies. Tataaaa – after approximately 100 minutes you get this.

Consider this a gift and use it as you like. Dimensions are FullHD (1920 x 1080) and license is creative commons. Have fun and consider sharing this post with your friends.

Or maybe you want to put this picture on your wall (german only)?

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…

Sunset – Things learned from HDR

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 the HDR effect and sqeeze the whole available light into one picture. There is a point where you put more light into the picture, than you could have possibly seen. If the effect is subtle it is OK, if it is not the outcome won’t be pleasant.

At the end of the day the colors of the sky turn kitsch. Today was very hot and the colours are amazing. So here is some postcard kitsch for you.

I am a big fan of sunrays and then I take my time to work them out of the RAW image. In this HDR this was rather difficult. But still, no Photoshop was needed.
