    Mossbrae Falls

    I shot this waterfall last year but wasn't satisfied with my work. I decided to try again this year using HDR. It works best when there is sunlight on the falls but the contrast between sunlight water and shade makes it difficult to capture the scene withou HDR. I admit I like this one.

    Hi Chuck,

    That's certainly quite pleasant, I think I'd take down the white water on right mid-ground a little more in PP, to stop it pulling the eye quite so much. It is the biggest and brightest thing in shot at the moment.

    I assume the local foliage, or topography, doesn't allow the sun to shine on the whole set of falls if you wait an hour or three?

    Cheers,

    Thanks Dave....seems good advice. I will have to return to the falls later in the day.

    Hi, Chuck. I'm curious about the HDR software you used. Also, could you estimate the time it takes to do an HDR? I guess it would vary with number of shots--how many did you use?

    Hi Joec: I use Photomatix for my HDR shots and almost always use just three images. I shoot RAW, convert to JPEG using DPP (Canon software) then converet to HDR in Photomatix then take it to Paint Shop Pro Photo (Corel software) or sometimes Photoshop CS3 to finalize.

    The time it takes varies but Photomatix can produce an HDR image in a couple of minutes or less once you have your images rounded up. Because I start with RAW and finish in another software, the process takes me a little longer.
