Honnister Pass...last one!

By mcgannc  
Evening all...Friday at last Grin

Thanks for another great response to last nights, this is the last one from Honnister for now...promise!

Like last nights, this is a 3 shot HDR. Again, I prefer the softer colour tones in this compared to the non-HDR ones, and the fg is sharper in this one as well.

Please let me know what you think if you've got time, thanks for looking! Go large if you can Smile

The Honnister Pass has afforded you some lovely images, Chris, and this one is excellent too. Not having the facility to operate HDR myself, I have no experience of the process, but it does seem to have given you an excellent image in tis shot with superb lighting, detail, f.g interest, etc. Lovely work.

Thanks everyone.

Ronnie, I'm not very experienced in it myself Smile I use the Photoshop version (CS4), I've not yet invested in Photomatix which a lot of people on here use...not sure if I will though as I like the more subtle affect I can get through Photoshop! You're right about Honnister though, it's got me my most successful shot on here so far (taken last year), so I just had to go back and get some more shots this year!

Hi Chris, I was reading a book in Waterstones the other day on HDR where, Photoshop, Photomatix and a third processing package were compared, but I found it hard to follow and decided it was not for me. However for those how can master the technique and use it sensibly and in appropriate situations, the results can be quite dramatic. I'd be interested to hear how you get on - to my mind it has worked a treat here and brought detail to the f/g slabs which would otherwise have been rather dull and less interesting.
Regards, Ronnie.

Fabulous image Chris, wonderful light and dof.

From what I can gather Ronnie, Photomatix Pro is the best for HDR work, and I've seen some people on here use it very well - but I've also seen some use it very poorly!! I'm going to stick with the Photoshop version for the time being but with a view to moving onto Photomatix as and when my confidence/skills grow. Will keep you posted!

Thanks Tony - you coming to the meet on 22nd?

A great shot well composed with lovely lighting. Well done for keeping the colours natural, not easy with HDR.

Cracking landscape, a sense of space is very evident. I think that good results can be achieved with HDR software if used with restraint. I use Photomatix and haven't tried the PS version as I am running CS3 at present.

My only critisism would be that the sky is very slightly over-saturated and pulls my eye away from the valley. Only my opinion of course and it may be down to my monitor.

Other than than, it's a corker and I'm hoping to visit this part of the country in the Summer.

Cheers Andrew, agree about the sky - wasn't completely happy with the colour but couldn't seem to get it more 'natural'! Hope you enjoy it when you go, it's a pretty breathtaking scene up there!!
