Variations on the same image

Richard Charpentier Notes from Rich 1 Comment

While going through yesterday’s workshop we had a little fun with Lightroom, Photomatix, and Topaz. Thought I’d share a few versions of the same image, and what was used.

3 Exposure HDR and then applied a lightroom antiqued effect.

3 Exposure HDR and then applied a lightroom high contrast black and white.

Finally, my favorite. 3 exposure HDR, then run through Topaz Adjust 4.

If you can’t tell, we decided to do a few “aged photo” effects with an HDR to see what we liked.  Personally, version 3 works for me.  But I’ve got to work on those blown out highlights in the sky in the middle.  Yuck.  Fixing those I think #3 would be a pretty cool image.

  1. Wow – you were right about the clouds cooperating! I would personally cast my vote for either #2 or #3, leaning towards #2. I’m very non-committal like that…
