Stop and Smell the Roses HDR Approach…

It has been over two weeks since I have published something to my Photo-Blog…

This is not to say, that I have not been taken pictures, I’m just back logged on processing!

I have also started to take a different approach…

Several Posts ago, I mentioned the HDR work of Klaus Herrmann (farbspiel), and in particular,  his post on “The General HDR Workflow“.

“Let the finished file sit on your hard disk for a day or two. Don’t post it right away. I found that when you get back to it a day later, you will discover things that you might want to change, things that you did not discover while you were working on the details of the image very intensely.”

True words to live by if you are doing HDR…

I have also taken to heart Klaus’ idea of doing:

  • Noise Removal
  • Sharpening

as early in the HDR process as possible.

I wish I had read or thought about this before!

Anyhow, I just finished posting three images to Flickr and Panoramio, and have many ideas for future captures!
