my 505050 project post for today? The light was quite harsh and contrasty so I took a number of images for the project and selected the one I liked the best. Not wanting to waste all those images I combined them into a five shot HDR of the red geranium in my back yard. Have a squiz at the two images and let me know which you prefer. the HDR image left seems to have softened the harshness of the highlights and shadows and given a more even tone to the flowers. What do you think?
After playing in the garden with the camera and the geranium it was time to take a chum off to the airport. The light is quite lovely in the early evening and there's such a lovely warm glow. Close to Auckland International airport there's a pretty estuary, but sadly nowhere to park to take a shot. The best I could do was the second image in this post. A seven shot HDR looking over Pukaki Inlet. (The hill you can see in the background is, I believe, Mangere Mountain. Perhaps correct me if I'm mistaken.)
