Hi, LuTech. You're welcome. Yes, I'm quite heavy on post-processing. (I love taking pictures as much as I love using computers.) I do HDR (I use DPHDR5) whenever I can (all the above except for #5 which I meant for documentary purposes only) then use Topaz Labs to separately process the sky from the foreground. But I'm sure you can do less than what I do and still come out with as good as if not a better pic.

I am using a Sony A350 with a Tamron 10-24mm lens.

#13) Even Radioshack electronics store seems to keep up with the village's small town character as it is housed in a barn-like structure.


13a) This is an out-of-camera (OOC) or un-processed version of the picture above. It is one of several shots I took with varying exposure settings. Notice a portion of the sky on the left is blown-out (all-white with no detail). HDR fixes that by filling it with information from the darker exposures.


EDIT: I just realized, my example isn't exactly accurate. The sky in #13 isn't HDR. I manually took it from one of the darker exposures. But the idea remains the same, that is, HDR will fill in too bright and too dark spots with information taken from the other shots.

I've been having an idea in my head lately that I'd like to do a set of "intersection" photos. but, the other side of my brain says 'what for? they won't look any good.". after seeing #6 which i imagine is just a blah building without pp, i'm back on board. thanks for sharing the pics.

I had to laugh at your comment because I actually think a lot of my pictures are of "blah" stuff. But I would have to differ with this one because the RadioShack building is always a headturner for me whenever I pass. If it didn't say "RadioShack", then I'd say ya it's blah.

#14) Route 52 heading towards Ellenville.

I was only talking about pic #6 (shops on canal street) not the radioshack one.

Great shots, vvcarpio. I love the shutter speeds you used on the waterfall pics.

Thanks, Wintershooter.

#16) I went back to Buttermilk Falls and took this photo. It's not HDR. It didn't rain like the last time so the rocks weren't slippery and I had more courage to walk on them for a closer shot.
