Pam and I visited Pittsburgh a couple of weeks ago. We spent 4 days visiting my Parents, Brother, Sister-in-law and niece and nephew. In between the family events we got away a couple of times to take some photographs of my hometown. While the weather was fine for visiting family, it wasn’t the best for photography. We got up early one morning to view the sunrise over the city from Mt Washington but there was a fair amount of fog/mist in the air so the images we got weren’t very good. The next day we stopped by the West End Overlook to get a view of the city in the afternoon. The light was pretty flat but overall better than the previous morning. I managed to get a few decent images of Pittsburgh’s famous landmark, The Golden Triangle:
The image above is the result of combining three bracketed images in HDR Efex Proand then making a few additional adjustments in Color Efex Pro, mainly to contrast.
The final result came out pretty good but I’m still trying to figure out the best workflow for my HDR images. There are as many different ways of creating images as there are photographers so it might take a while for me to find a workflow that works best for me. I’ll keep working on the process and trying different things. That’s the beauty of digital photography, we can work and re-work our images any number of ways, whenever we want. Once we have a quality original image file (in RAW of course) our options are almost limitless!
