Three Gossips … take two!

Home|Blog, HDR, Photography|Three Gossips … take two!

Canon 7D, Canon 24-105 ƒ/4L IS lens, HDR (1/200, 1/50, 1/13 sec) at f/11, ISO 100

I posted this same image on my blog last week after doing a quick edit on it in Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro (here’s a link to that image). My laptop won’t really calibrate too well so the original edit it didn’t look like I wanted it to, and I also shot it to make it into an HDR. So last night I sat down and re-edited the image. I did “over process” it a little bit, but I wanted it to be bold and dramatic. I even like the effect of the haloing over the top of the Three Gossips … normally that’s a huge “no-no” for me, but something about it that just works for this scene.

The processing I used was basic white-balance adjustments in Lightroom, then I brought the three images into Photomatix Pro to for HDR. After that I used Silver Efex Pro to add a nice B&W effect.

    Fabulous. I happened to visit the 3 gossips last year. You’ve really captured them well :)

    Very nice work! BW HDR seems to be the perfect approach for this image.

    The original is vastly superior to this IMO.
