The Garden .::HDR::.

Stupid weather website said it would rain today.

Now i wake up, look out the window and what do i see? The best sky to make HDR pics! And NO RAIN!
And i coulda have gonne to this island to take awesome pics (which was my original plans), and didnt cos of the STUPID WEATHER SITE.

Ill try to go out and take good pics 🙂

Almost all my photos are geotagged !!!

The shot

Standard 3 exposures HDR [-2,0,+2EV] in RAW/ISO100 at f/11 using Canon 18-55mm lens, on tripod.


Tonemapped using the detail enhancer.


-Added one layer mask of "curves" to increase the contrast.

-Added one layer mask of "hue/saturation" to decrease the color saturation.

-Sharpened using high pass sharpening (A-HAAAAAAAAA!)



All comments, criticism and tips for improvements are ( as always ) welcome.
