Honda Goldwing HDR from West Virgina

This was a single exposure HDR tone mapped from a single RAW file. Post processing was done using Photoshop. I applied a gradient map and the Orton Effect to this photo, and also blended some of the original image back in. I thought this was going to be a quick process, but it ended up taking way longer than it should have. The downfall of being a perfectionist ;-)

Software Used for Processing Photo:
– Used for creating high dynamic range.
Topaz Adjust
– Photoshop plugin used to enhance details.
Topaz DeNoise
– Photoshop plugin used to eliminate noise.
Topaz Clean
Photoshop plugin used to smooth pixels.

Photography Style: High Dynamic Range
Digital Camera Used: Canon 5D Mark2
Lens Used: Canon 17-35mm f/2.8L USM
Photo Location: Palm Beach Island, West Palm Beach, Florida

    Maybe longer than usual but I am myself learning to HDR from one raw. The idea of being able to do hdr of trees in the wind or moving objects thrills me a lot. Lets talk about these possibilities my friend. This one up here has a wonderful result Kim.
