Mabry Campbell - Old Sealy Bridge
Wow…how do you do this? BEAUTIFUL!!!!
great perspective… and the sky is gorgeous!
Thank you Patricia. I’m thrilled you like it! And thanks for all the comments, I really appreciate other people’s perspective. Don’t be a stranger…and hats off to you on becoming a teacher. – Mabry
Gosh, beautiful I almost can hear the wistle of the train…
Glad you like it. Yes, it’s a very mild hdr image.
I don’t usually like HDR work as I feel it looks very false but you sir, have implemented it perfectly in this shot. Excellent work. Can I ask, how many images did you take? I’m guessing three? Light readings from the bridge, the sky and the clouds?
I don’t really like it that much either! It’s or my style. I think that’s my fifth try, sometimes it works, other times it’s a disaster. But trying different things never hurts. Three images in burst, -2, 0, +2, with the “correct” exposure at the focal point in the middle of the bridge. Waited a while for the sun to break through and then took them. I tried to make it look “non-comic book” in the processing. I’m glad you like it, and they can be fun sometimes. – Mabry
Yeah I’ve tried a few times but my results haven’t been great. My digital doesn’t have a burst setting so I individually meter for different spots before setting up the final image. I work mainly with film also so HDR never really crosses my mind. Still, after seeing this piece, I really want to go out and experiment some more, and your technique should really help! Thanks for sharing. And keep it up I might be back to show you some of my results for some advice if you wouldn’t mind. Stephen.
Seems we’re both playing with this and seeing what happens. I’ve found getting rid of ghosting in an HDR is important and what seems totally mundane when you’re standing there can turn out quite interesting. And I’d love to see what you come up with. Send it on! I may put up another tonight…it’s a shot of a big rig truck, really low and close at 17mm. Don’t know how I feel about it. That’s probably reason enough to put it out there
