Falling rays by Dee-T Falling rays by Dee-T
Punchbowl Falls
Oregon

These falls in the Columbia River Gorge were one of my 'must see' destinations. As Tula Top and I set off on a morning hike, the conditions of clear blue skies did not look promising for waterfall photography but what a beautiful sight we were greeted with ! The rays of light lit up the waterfall spray and faint mist and leaves were scattered on the ground ( this one placed on the rock ).[Prints] [Facebook] [500px]

Excellent! Is this an HDR photo, or were you relying on PhotoShop?
Reply
:icondee-t:
Dee-T Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2013
HDR can be done many different ways - 4 exposures were blended using luminosity masks and other masking techniques in photoshop for this one (I prefer not to use automated software methods like HDR EFEX pro or photomatix)

Okay. Is there any particular reason you prefer PS to HDR software? I'd like to get into HDR stuff soon :)

Dee-T Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2013
if you learn the theory of how to do it manually then you can really do anything you want and achieve the look you want
if you use automated software, the final look will always point at a certain software package being used and less individuality

I tried a very cheap HDR program recently and it was pretty terrible, so  that's a good point. I'll have to try altering my own photos with Artweaver. :)
