Ale Stones HDR by carlzon Ale Stones HDR by carlzon
The Ale Stones at Kåseberga in Skåne is swedens biggest stone ship (67 m).
The scientists disputing if what the really been used to and what the really is. Some think that it is a chief grave from the bronze age [1800 – 550 B.C) other mean that it is a astronomical observatory from a yet older time.

HDR stands for high dynamic range. HDR is using multiexposure pictures and blending them into one great picture. But still, it all depends on the person who is using it.
Photoshop CS2 has HDR rendering too but I use Phtotomatix from hdrsoft.com [link].

Wow, I really need to give this HDR a try. Do you think Photomatix is delivering better results than Phoshop [using RAWs]?

Oh, I almost forgot - really nice photo *respect*

very painterly effect especially with the sky. I love the mystery of these ancient rocks.
I have been trying to use HDR in a more natural way to augment my landscapes, same software.

I love the colours, the shadows, the clarity - it feels completely unreal - a vision of a perfect world.

Stiligt foto. Jag har själv länge velat testa Phototomatix HDR rendrering - verkar kraftfullt :)

Det enda jag inte riktigt gillar med fotot är att det ser ut som att den främre stenen lyser en aning, ser ut som att du suddat bort ett lager ovanpå och gått lite för långt ut på kanterna. Eller var det kanske medvetet?

Annars är det välldigt fint :nod:

Tack, tack....
Det här är ingen äkta HDR eftersom jag utgått från en exponering och gjort tre kopior från -2AV till +2AV och då kan det uppstå en corona just som det gjort på den här bilden. Annars så är det en spännande teknik som man kan få spännande resultat av.
En som nått en bit längre än vad jag har gjort kan du se här: [link]

Ah då förstår jag. Som sagt är det välldigt intressant det där med HDR. Som personen du länkade till - imponerande. Fotona blir ju näst intill magiska många gånger.

I think I like this one more, quite hard to decide. The HDR effect is quite cool I must admit.
Wonderful job on the colours. I would have cut off like 3 mm from the right side, cause
there's a black thing showing there :)
