I have been sorting my photos from the bay crits, I need to get them up on my website, but thought that today I would show you the HDR images that I like from Portarlington.
The sky in this one isn’t as dramatic, but I like the pier, the people fishing off the end and how that leads you to the city in the very far distance. It gives you an idea of how far away the city of Melbourne is.
Again the sky isn’t as moody as ones to follow, but you can see the boats. You can see how far the tide was out that you could walk a long way out and the water wouldn’t even be up to your ankles. You can also see that it is raining somewhere between there and the city.
If I zoom out and take in more, then you can see more of the cloudy sky. You can’t see much detail of the pier and the water and the boats, but does that matter? I think images like this are more about the sky rather than the foreground and perhaps the foreground is only necessary to give the image some context.
Same goes with this one.
I have to say that this is probably one of the best cloudy skies I took that day. I also think the pier leading out to the boats is probably better because it is very simple and your eye isn’t trying to make out everything on it.
This is probably my favourite of all the HDR images I did yesterday, I like the way the images lend themselves really way to the HDR process.
Now, I must get back to the photos from the bay crits.
