the pool

…. if only the water wasn’t so cold.

Took this some days ago in the Black Forest. Had to take 5 single shots and process them with Photomatix. The dynamic range was just to high here for a single (well exposed) shot. The difficult parts were the left dark side, the flowing water and the white clouds in the sky. In a single shot either the left side in the shadow is to dark and the sky and the water well exposed or the shadow parts are well exposed and the sky and the water overexposed. So it’s a classic situation for a HDR image. I’m pretty satisfied with the result. What do you think?

    Very good indeed. Always love photographing waterfalls and creating these dream-like photos… but never any as good as this one. Great colours and composition.
    Before I read the description I could see that there was something extra in the processing… been meaning to play around with Photomatix and jump-on the HDR bandwagon 🙂

  2. Wow, great job on this one. I’ve shot scenes like this and I can relate to the challenges. The tone mapping is near perfect in this.
