Picturenaut HDR of Cape Elizabeth

Mar 23, 2010 | Landscapes & Scenery

Picturenaut’s HDR results from Cape Elizabeth impressed me so much I had to do a final version. I used Picturenaut to create this HDR image. I had to create 2 separate HDR photos because I was unable to get the results I wanted with the clouds and the foreground in one image. I then took both images and layered them in Photoshop. I mask out the parts I didn’t want from the cloud layer and used [intlink id=”542″ type=”post”]Topaz Adjust[/intlink] to enhance details in the clouds. I really wanted this image to be an absolute photograph of nature so I took out the fence and the house. Afterward I flatten and adjusted the colors and unsharpened the entire image. As simple as this image was it gave me quite a workout in Photoshop. I normal don’t spend much time in Photoshop, but when I see something in my head, I do what it takes to reproduce it.
