Foggy HDR #2

Posted by
john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 25 October 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This was processed with Nik's new HDR Efex and used the Granny's Attic preset. The same 5 shots were used to create this photograph that were used for yesterday's photograph. The credit for the "look" goes totally to the preset.

NIKON D700 F/16.0 ISO 400 36 mm (35mm equiv.)

Monique from Koh Samui, Thailand

Beautiful Jack! Love the mysterious atmosphere created by the fog and the upcoming sun hiding behind the tree, fantastic!

A different tone approach than yesterday..still very lovely...atmosphere is there, looks colder/damp today..there is also the light in here that plays differently..interesting

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

I've been sitting here flicking between yesterday and today-and I guess I'm a bit boring in that I like yesterday more than today-it's strong enough to not need any processing! I'm looking forward to tomorrow to see what's in store!!

25 Oct 2010 7:49am

@CElliottUK: today's is more impacted by the preset

Sarito from Basingstoke, United Kingdom

A lot of visual impact, color and tonal values are rich and warm, exposure and clarity are perfect Jack. An excellent work here then.

Wonderful Jack! This is realy a great shot full of textures and beautiful tones. Wonderful!!

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

Fascinating how different this is from your previous - difficult to believe it is the same original !

25 Oct 2010 6:47pm

@Ronnie 2¢: Both used the same 5 raw shots. The second photograph was processed in Nik's new HDR Efex, which has a slew of presets. I don't think that I would ever have come up with this look with the Nik preset; I say that even though you definitely could create it without a preset.

A real sense of "aura" is created here. Such an interesting name for a preset.

Stunning. Entirely different mood with this process.
This has that wild west atmosphere.
I really like it but yesterday's process won me over.
Great work on both versions, Jack.
