Hi shoot2kill,
thanks for the viewing.

Actually, all these pics on that i've posted, do not at all look the same as what i have on my computer. They look more dull, lack of contrast and are flat. I think that is due to the compression of the website as it transfers the pics from my computer to the forum.

So, i wonder maybe i should do something about it.

there will be more coming. I know it is a bit messy like what some of u have said, i'm still learning to get my travel shoots look in order and great to follow thru.

thanks guys!

One HDR of River Scene

Post by nicholas_khoo on Sat 19 Jul 2008, 11:37

This is a HDR scene of the river in Bangkok. I know that some of you mentioned that i shouldn't do so much photoshopping (hehehe....hmm..interesting term!). But i just cant help it in this pic.

I've also added rays of light to create that dynamic effect.

PLs do let me know how u feel about this pic. C&C are most welcome pls. Thanks! p.s: I've finally got my browser to config such that the posted pics look exactly the same as my original pic.

Hope u like the real HDR version.

hi all!! i've finally am able to post my pics which looked the same as my original. It's all about changing the color settings and profile from adobeRGB to sRGB. Also, ur web browser, for me i use firefox, it has a configuration setting which allow color profiles to be widely accepted on the browser.

Along the river cruise, we were introduced to this dock. It's been locked up and closed to the access of the public. The reason? It belongs to the King of Thailand. This is where he parks his boats...not those luxurous yatchs but those that are meant for cultural and religious occasions, in which he will be on it and sail along the river.

The saddening part of being in bkk is that, u see all of them worship their King and Queen, almost to the point of at all cost. But then, the irony is, the king is in such well-off life compared to them. The disparity is so great that this river exemplified the simple and poor standard of living of the thais. This pic below shows the modern girl who owns a mp3 player, in clean clothes, who leads a good life, in comparison with the old and dirty poor life of the river slums.

Along the river, occasional sampang will come along to sell us their local souvenirs. Well, i wonder if they had drifted from the Floating Market to here, or they are living in one of those old houses....

Had the bright white patch been tinged with yellow, it would look a bit more dramatic.

If the boat is your subject you can't do HDR because the boat is moving and if do HDR you'd either have 3 images (normally) of the boat or you'd have a blurred image of the boat because of the quick succession of shots made for the HDR.

If your subject is the background scene then you have to tune your aperture value to F8, preferably F16 to shoot the HDR, which would eventually totally blur the boat because of its movement. Which in my opinion is the ideal scene for the HDR. Smile

hi!
i created the HDR using just 1 single raw file. So that is the reason why the boat is so sharp. ..

I have another version to show u too....

I love this. I like the sky (need to learn this from you), the contrast between the tall building, the shanties look below and the silver hues in the water. The space created in front of the boat too is perfect.

Only the tall building looks like a drawing. Overall its very dramatic in fact. Smile
