Photos around the Lake (HDR and tonemapping)
I have been spending time up at the lake again, and enjoying the winter weather. Â And, as usual, I have been making the rounds with my camera (the Sony Digital SLR Alpha 100.)
One of my goals is to photograph the area around Rose Valley Lake here in PA. Â You can find many of my photographs from around Rose Valley on Flickr in the “Around Rose Valley” photoset.
I also have been continuing my exploration of HDR, or High Dynamic Range, imaging along with “tone mapping.” Â While I have, in the past, used HDR and tone mapping to simply enhance the tonal range of an image to more closely match what the human eye can see, I have lately been exploring some of the more “intense” image manipulation options available.
Here are a few samples:
