This is a study in excess. Because I was shooting into the sun, I needed to use HDR. Also, I wanted to make sure it was sharp all over. I captured a 9 exposure HDR for each of the foreground, mid-distance, and background. The resulting 3 image were then focus stacked into a resultant image. Done. But, then I was giving a presentation on Deep Dream in a Zoom EPUG meeting and decided to show what a default style would bring. This is what I got when I combined with the photograph. Prescience in Deep Dream? Who knew?
This is a composite comprised of an image of the mobbing which took place at the Blue Lake Hatchery and the Pacific coastline near Dry Lagoon. Some symmetry of logs was added for whimsy. Both the eagle and the crow survived the encounter.
Willow Creek Campground all provides great opportunities for photographs. No matter which season, there’s always something interesting. This is 1/5sec exposure at f22. Contrast was added to better show the water flow. Thanks for looking, Hal
I shot this as wide open as I could to get a shallow depth of field. Not sure why I did that. Glad I did. Somewhat creepy as Mary Ann would say. The color rendition I did was fine. This is much more impactful. Thanks for looking.
By the skin of my teeth I was in Japan last month. Two days before I was scheduled to come home, the state department indicated very strongly that I should cut the trip short. This took place in a thatched house during a snow storm.
I’ve worked this image several times. Here’s another take that had never occurred to me before. Click image for larger view. Enjoy, Hal
