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?
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
