Foggy AM HDR

This is the HDR version. I did a one photograph processing in Photomatix. The crop from yesterday's was the result of input from my Critique Group Thursday night.

NIKON D300 1/200 second F/7.1 ISO 400 70 mm

Shiloh from Los Angeles, United States

What amazing fog! I personally love fog pictures!

Not bad that this we see better details...

Hilde Morin from Portland, Oregon, United States

A Dreamworld!!! All those new greens, evergreens and lichens are spectacular...and the fog, spectacular.

Annie Viguié from Bordeaux, France

I shall really like living in this place...

5 Mar 2010 6:00am

@Annie Viguié: Not shabby at all :))

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Very nice. The colors are more intense. The fog really resonates with that crop. Almost looks like smoke. The car still makes it. (kidding... LA. :) Actually without the cars it would look like an old English manor.

You guys and your HDR! my son is getting quite good at this, but that means schlepping a tripod around, and I'm getting VERY old! :)But it sure looks worth the effort. I like this a lot.

Scott F. Schilling from San Martin, United States

I like the texture and feel and I am always fascinated by the mix of oaks and then the evergreens - great image Jack!

Gran ambiente y composición llena de colores

Superbe Jack.... Bonne journée.

Dulcie from Danville, CA, United States

The tighter crop just tells a different story...puts the emphasis on the building.
My favorite is yesterday's image, but I'm not a fan of HDR so that colors my point of view. :-)

This picture is a little clearer, I think it's very nice!

Marie LC from Voiron, France

excuse me Jack but I prefer without HDR... but love your composition

Now this is what I call an HDR!!! You've done it superbly! Beautiful colours. I won't mind living there ;)

Mathilde Collot from Fontainebleau, France

I liked the picture yesterday, but the HDR gives a rich texture, great color density and especially a beautiful velvety without affecting the definition! It is superb! I dare not even try! I must learn to manipulate Photomatix, I registered yesterday at the "Nikon
school "in Paris! I hope progress. I like aminus, but I think lack of photographers to give constructive analysis of our images, I do not move anymore!

5 Mar 2010 7:42am

@Mathilde Collot: I stay with Aminus because of the people. And I love viewing the photographs of others. However, I don't think that it is a place to receive constructive criticism.

MK from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

hmmmm....may be the HDR version is better. But i like both

Still beautiful.......... though I feel for yesterdays more:)

The HDR one is also beautiful , different ,like a dreamworld !

Zora Zoé - sichtbar fotogrativ from Berlin, Germany

Wow, John4Jack - really really brilliant, I am loss for words :-) The vivid green in contrast to that foggy forest - from fog to clearness - stunning!!! :-)

Florence from Paris, France

Great and perfect HDR, colors and mist are revealed and enhanced... Of course, I prefer this one... makes me want to walk...

Look like a picture post card

I see! A very interesting example of the use of HDR famous! One thing I've ever tried and that works fine for me. In this case the master's worked and is a beautiful picture too! Of omentum yesterday I prefer Jack! But keep watching, watching and learning! A hug and many kisses dear friend too! Good weekend! Adela

Sylvie from entre Angers et Saumur, France

I like and I also make of the HDR. We see better details. You should not too much stress. Great and perfect HDR.

khadi from New Delhi, India

Fantastic use of HDR. Yesterday's was a very moody, emotion-heavy image -- today's more vivid, the car really grabs you. I can't say which one I like more because each suits different moods. But really interesting experimentation.

MrsAmber from West Wickham, United Kingdom

Interesting to see, it has certainly made the scene more vivid.

Sarito from Basingstoke, United Kingdom

I like the texture and light added by the HDR processing.. But I like yesterday's more..:).

Anthony Morgan Lambert from Bielefeld(old West Wales boy), Germany

To be honest I prefer yesterdays shot !! The colours are a little OTT today and the crop takes away all those nice diagonal lines in the foreground !!

Bonvilston from Cardiff, United Kingdom

I like this one

5 Mar 2010 1:55pm

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

My views are "coloured" too Jack, so you know that I will say I prefer this HDR, for the extra vibrancy and the way it interprets the light and textures. This is far more "alive" than yesterday's.

JJ from Jersey City, United States

The HDr has really brought out the colors and detail, I have tried HDR a couple of times but just couldnt get a result I liked, I must try again sometime based on this

5 Mar 2010 2:17pm

Judy from Brooksville, Florida, United States

I find it difficult to compare the two images because of today's crop. Things appear more vibrant here, but when I look at the grass in yesterday's, it too is a vibrant green, just at a greater distance.

5 Mar 2010 2:25pm

Marleen from Doesburg, Netherlands

Difficult to choose, they both have a different feel to it.
Today's pic got more details though.....very interesting to compare the two:-)

very nice ,beautiful :)

Alan from Manila, Philippines

Stunning colors!

5 Mar 2010 3:41pm

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

This is well done, Jack. It doesn't scream HDR to me. So, if I understand correctly, you used a single image to do this?

5 Mar 2010 3:57pm

Don from spokane, United States

I like the added brilliance to the colors. The slightly larger view of the house adds too. Well done.

PATRICK from miramas, France

wow splendid!!!

António Pires from Lisbon, Portugal

I prefer yesterday's version.

keith from killarney, Ireland

jack you have this image popping, great processing, the fog totally puts a cap on the image and the 40 shades of green are just awesome

5 Mar 2010 5:56pm

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

Of course this one as a more flattering rendering but the previous one is certainly the nearest of the reality.
Feeling is really different for both of them and i like both (because your HDR effect is not too hard... )

Superbes couleurs !

Nice closer look...

This just sings! I do like the tighter crop, too!

so serene & beautiful :)

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

The HDR processing has done a great job of highlighting the detail seen in the house. It has also helped reveal two other homes that were once "buried" in the landscape. Greater texture is seen in the trees' foliage.

Close we get more mysterious this is looking.

very beautiful view jack , excellent !

Seraphine from San Francisco, United States

wow. i love the color intensity. the trees looks like somebody flocked them. (is that the right word, flock? like you do to christmas trees to make them look like snow fell on them.) your photo almost glows. awesome.

LauraS from Chico, United States

I didn't think I would like this shot better than the original, but I do. I like them both. Nicely done, Jack.

6 Mar 2010 4:56am

@LauraS: My hunch is that it is because it is not over the top HDR.

Anita from West Nottingham, United States

Nicely captures foggy Oregon!

6 Mar 2010 9:03am

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, United States

Didn't get out here yesterday, but glad i checked today..This shot is awesome.....and I really like the crop you chose......Perfect example of how processing in photomatix can enhance a shot just enough!!!!!

Self-Indulgence from Chicagoland, United States

You have a lot more detail here and I like the darker sky but some of the lighter tones are too light for my tastes. Checking your next one --->

Chris Giovannis from Sydney, Australia

A wonderful image Jack. Cropping here would have been quite challenging? but you've nailed it!

9 Mar 2010 5:25am

Magda from Vancouver, Canada

I like both but this one has that extra "punch"! ;)
What a gorgeous place!

I like this one and your very last one in the is the very crisp colors and details..the last one is in the distance and crop both very nice ...lovely work..
