This was taken same day I took the photo of the Abandoned Old House. I took the photos using my cameras auto bracketing feature. I really wish i had a tripod with me that day. This HDR photo was created using Photomatix Pro 4, same as the old abandoned house, the only difference with the two is, in this photo, I did not use Topaz Adjust, but instead, I used Niks Viveza to bring out the details. In Nik’s Viveza, there are four sliders, brightness, contrast, saturation and structure. I boost the brightness to 20%, contrast to 5%, left saturation as is, and lastly and most important part, I boost the structure to 65%. Hope you like it.


Software I use to create and process this photograph:

  • Photomatix Pro – I used this in creating this High Dynamic Range Photograph by merging the three exposures I shot.
  • Nik Dfine 2.0 – This is a photoshop plugin from Nik Software. I used this to remove noise from my photos.
  • Nik’s Viveza 2 – This from Nik Software. I used this to enhanced the fine detail structure of this hdr photo.
  • Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 – I used Lightroom to manage and organized my photographs.
