Resisting the time

I like taking photos of heavy machines, including tanks. And it looks much more authentic when they are not in a museum. But it would be better if they were only in museums.

I took this photo two years ago, so it’s still one from the Canon 450D. When I first loaded it into Photomatix, I almost dismissed it immediately, it was so noisy compared to the ones from the 5D :) But I’m glad I gave it a chance, as the result is quite nice.

I posted a Photomatix screenshot from this photo on my Facebook page, so if you would like to see the settings I used, you can see them there.

Military Vehicle

I was a little busy yesterday (seems to happen to me quite a lot the last month) so instead of creating a new HDR, I selected one of my very old ones. I edited this probably more than 6 months ago :).

This one was taken at the military museum in Svidnik, when I was there in the summer of 2010.

HDR from three shots, taken with Canon 450D with Sigma 10-20mm lens, from a tripod.

Photo editing

Another little view into my photo editing process. The following image shows the original three shots (-2,0,+2), with the photomatix result (bottom left) and the final image edited in photoshop (bottom right). As is visible, photomatix is used to blend the images, but it’s far from the finished photo.
