Good grief–I’ve been working a good portion of the day on yesterday’s photos from the photowalk. The hidden curse of digital photography is it cries out to be improved. With tools like Photoshop, Photomatix and Autostitch I’ve worked on all the attached shots.
There are two panoramas in the mix. Unfortunately, they’re much wider than tall and heavily shrunk to fit the available space on my blog. You can click on the slideshow to see them closer to full size.
A few of the photos are HDR (high dynamic range).. They are produced by marrying three identical shots, but with different shutter speeds. I am not sure if they look ‘other wordly’ because they are, or because we’re not used to seeing photos with that much range. What I saw in person was stunning–I know that.
My shots have been submitted to a Flickr pool with shots from some of the other photographers. Over the next few days the number of photos there will grow.
