While You Were Dreaming by gilad While You Were Dreaming by gilad

Five o'clock at the old Jaffa port,
Beating the sun to the scene
While most of us are dreaming,
The world seems like a part of a dream.

The ships are still sleeping while the world awakes around them
White herons mark white dots I go through to complete the picture
The sun light up the scene with gold tones of royalty And I know one thing
I could never have dreamed a dream as beautiful, as this 5 o'clock reality


***


I submitted a higher resulotion of this one, so you can see the details.
Take time to do it. Watch in full view.
This is an *HDR from 3 exposures to get the best possible documentation of that beauty.
Taken with a sigma 10-20mm with a tripod and fixed aparture, different shutter speeds.

*HDR = High Dynamic Range.
This is a lighting procedure designed to emulate the way that light levels in the real world vary over an enormous range.
You basicly put a number od different dynamic range together, and increase the range.

very unusual effect achieved with the HDR. i've never seen any other photos using this technique (maybe i haven't looked hard enough). if you care to and have the time, it would be awesome if you wrote a journal about its basics.

love the reflections on the water.

I don't understand HDR. Would it be too much to ask for a more detailed description?

gilad Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2006  Professional Photographer
Taking 3 exact compositions (in this case it was three) with the same aparture, but different shutter speeds. It was 1/10 for the darker areas, 1/150 for the boats and 1/1000 for the sky. The three generate three different level of lighting and dynamic range.
I used the photoshop CS2 File > automate > merge to HDR. There you pick the three files making the HDR file, and the rest is fine tunning.

Wow! Thank you so much for explaining it!. Do you have to choose from a single shot the rest of the frame (i.e., the men by the boats)?
