Kaiko's Gate by Zend99 Kaiko's Gate by Zend99
I went to this familiar spot on Black Point to photograph the western sky, but it turned out that the eastern sky held all the action. Shooting the rocks when they're front lit brings out so much detail, it's almost overwhelming. This image is made from 6 separate images manually blended to build depth in the tonal range and a panoramic picture without loss of detail through cropping.

Thank you! It's on the south shore of O'ahu, in Hawai'i, near Diamond Head.

It's certainly not easy. I recommend saving and using snapshots excessively.

Did you HDR on this one?
Reply
:iconzend99:
Zend99 Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2011
There is a subtle amount of HDR toning to individual images, but the whole image is not HDR, thanks for looking!

I see... I'm trying to get HDR tones like these, not like the usual harsh/blurry stuff. I don't know if it's the app, the shots or me, who's doing something wrong with the technique. Have you ever tried Aperture?

I use lightroom and photoshop, taking the image back and forth sometimes several times. I use a lot of layers and sometimes use the HDR function in Photoshop, but rarely do I use the merge to hdr function. Good luck to you!
