Another beautiful night

August 20, 2010  •  Leave a Comment

I must say, we have had a beautiful summer here in New England. Yeah, I know we could use the rain, but for once, mother nature hasn't messed with us too bad!

I have my window open in my office getting ready to go down memory lane with the B-52s who are playing across the street at Boarding House Park.

As for miscellaneous shots for tonight, here are some that I took.


This image is an HDR that I took over at the Swamp Locks. The orange reflection on the water is coming off the Freudenburg building. Even though it provided nice color for my photo, I wish they would get rid of the Freudenburg. It is so out of place, particularly amongst that group of mills.


Considering I didn't have a tripod with me, which you really do need to get decent water veil affects, I am pleased with the results. When I do HDR, I normally only take 3 shots, one underexposed by half a stop, the second at normal exposure and the last overexposed by half a stop. For the actual processing of the image, I use Photomatix Pro. I find that some of the HDR images found around the internet can be rather garish. I try to stay away from that look. On the other hand, some folks may find my image too saturated (which I will admit, is!). But we all have our different tastes. I find that I love rich color especially when the colors complement each other.

 



I laugh every time I look at this


 


The light was nice tonight
 with the bricks glowing
 a warm orange. 
Found a interesting stack of
wood over at the Appleton
Mills construction site. 






 




Fun with shapes




 

G'Night, Lowell!
