Krime, did you do a ride report of that trip, (in the RR's in your sig?)
This is one of the nicest shots I have seen so far.
I travel in France from time to time, but haven´t been there obviously. Do you remember the exact place or road number.?
Yep, it's the 2013 report in my sig. I'm in the process of writing it now.
Thanks. It's at the entrance of the Tunnel des Ardoisières - you can Google street view it as well.
Thanks a lot.
I was very near two years ago. Only a few km´s away, but then headed up north to Col Du Galibier.
Maybe next time.
I would love to get over to France and ride the famous climbs of the Tour de France... Someday...
My comp to you too Krime, on that pic. I would have been concerned about shooting into the sun, but with digital you're never wasting film.
Ah yes that would explain it. We were heading East and then headed up North to Galibier from there.
Thank you. Absolutely, HDR makes these kind of shots possible.
My contribution for today
I have some new ones in a report just started: April Shows a New Buddy a Good Time - California & Oregon With KYMike & dave6253
Love the lighting in the first shot, Dave. Very dramatic.
From a recent trip.
I second that. Very nice.
One of my favourite spots in Switzerland.
Dave6253, Terham and Krime,
I would LOVE to know what settings you are using to achieve those effects. Help a hack out?
Marvelous. Where is it exactly?
I play around with nearly every setting for each individual HDR. I rarely use presets or repeat the same settings. I can only suggest you play around with each setting and see how each slider control works with the others. Experiment until you find something close to what you want.
I NEVER consider a photo finished after coming out of HDR software. At a minimum I adjust exposure, contrast, increase black point, adjust white balance and color, and sharpen in Lightroom 5. I often also do local adjustments, crop, vignette etc..
If you are using Photomatix Pro then maybe try these settings as a possible starting point.
I'm relatively new to this and have learned a lot from this thread, and based on this thread, I use Lightroom 5 and Photomatix Essentials. The last photo I posted was from a single exposure, which I'm trying to do more of, and was an iPhone jpg. For most HDR, I use bracketed RAW files but I don't take my DSLR on the bike with me. I made 2 virtual copies in LR of the jpg, one overexposed and one underexposed, and combined all 3 in Photomatix. I too play with the sliders, and sometimes put it back in LR for further editing. Based on Dave's photos, I should always do this last step.
