Here is the final HDR photo from Monday’s original Photomatix image. This HDR photo was taken from Siem Reap, Cambodia in one of the Angkor Wat Temple ruins. I thought this image had some potential. After looking at it for a few minutes I decided to add some artist effects by using Topaz Simplify. I also, and I’m sure you noticed, add some light rays. This was my second light rays attempt and I really thought it came out amazing.
Photomatix Monday and Final HDR Friday was designed to show people how much processing goes into each image. By doing this you can see the amount of work involved, some more than others.
