Red Barn HDR

Uploaded: August 23, 2006


A HDR image of one of my favorite barns. The original images were bracketted at 2/3 of a stop and taken with a tripod. Middle image specs: F/22, 1/60s, 28mm, ISO-100.

Created the HDR image, then in PSE 4.0: applied the NIK Contrast Filter: Red, Resizing, and USM for posting.

Thanks Joy! It took several years of living here in Central Illinois to appreciate the striking beauty of the LONG horizon, but I have come to love them! I grew up in Michigan where such things are usually blocked by trees unless you are looking over water... :) #3258367
