surreptitious treasures 2006-10-23

Picture seven in the Ireland Series. I originally shot this as an HDR, but in post-processing realized the cloud movement between the frames was too much ('ghosting'); so I opted to use the HDR method for the lower half of the image (comprised of 8 shots), and use masking to drop in the upper half. Otherwise I'd never be able to attain this much detail.

PS: Should I keep going with the Ireland series? Or are the viewers getting tired of the same genre of pictures?

  • I think the processing is a bit overdone. But then again, I'm never been a big fan of HDR.

  • Absolutely magical shot. I hear you about the choice to split the HDR top and bottom. Great decision - works incrediblyu well.

  • I'm loving the series!

    Now that I know this image is split, I think of it as a nearly seamless diptych.

  • Great shot. Again, I'm curious as to exactly where this was taken.

  • Thanks again.

    Jennifer this is facing east, about 1km from Cliffs of Moher, or 10km or so from Doolin. As you drive past the Cliffs parking lot, you notice a vast field to your right with dozens of old ruins and abandonned barns and houses. That's how I got lucky with this image.
