Churches – Wednesday HDRs

It's gotten to be a little project lately. Anytime we're visiting somewhere new I try to pop into a local church and get enough shots to put together an HDR photo. Since churches aren't places to be big and brash and American, coming in, taking over and spreading out with a tripod, these usually have to be hand held brackets and some are more successful than others. They all seem to require substantial processing.

Here are some from a few of our last trips. Click them all to make them bigger. They're from Havana, Cuba, St. Helena Island, Panama City, Panama and Riga, Latvia.

See them all, along with 380 other HDRs in the HDR Gallery at EarthPhotos.com. And if any of them catches your fancy you can see more photos in the Cuba, St. Helena, Panama and Latvia galleries. All these were shot with Nikon cameras, processed in Photomatix with various Nik plug-ins and finished in Photoshop.

 

Wednesday HDR: Church in Panama’s Old Town

Cathedral-small

Churches and cathedrals seem to lend themselves to HDR processing. This is La Iglesia de la Merced, Casco Viejo, Panama City, Panama. It's from three handheld exposures (-2, 0, +2 ev). combined and tonemapped in Photomatix Pro and finished in CS5. Click it to make it quite a bit bigger.

There are currently 333 other HDR photos in the HDR Gallery at EarthPhotos.com.

Wednesday HDR: Panama Canal Tow Train, in the Rain

These trains guide ships through the Panama Canal. That's a ship's hull behind the train and you can see two cables running between the train and the ship.

Single RAW re-exposed at -2, -1, 0, +1, & +2 EV, tonemapped in Photomatix and finished in Photoshop with a little of Nik Software's Duplex effect in Color Efex Pro.

This is the first photo posted to the new Panama Gallery at EarthPhotos.com, which will fill with more photos over the next couple of weeks. Click the photo to make it much bigger. And see over 300 more HDRs in the EarthPhotos HDR Gallery.
