A Point of View

Uploaded: March 25, 2009


I found the B&W application with photomatix very useful particularly when the frequent Oregon cloudy skys are a part of the images. The light smoothing on all three images were high, the high contrast that the higher black point areas were locally removed with Viveza to avoid too much shadow clipping. The overall look after much experimentation was a flatter, smoother more natural appearance. A high pass filter in PS 3 was added in all three with blending in linear light.

Exif: F Number: 22.6, ISO: 200, FocalLength: 15.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 5D Mark II

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
