Default FZ40 Brisbane Storm HDR

More big storms today: I left my desk and went into the middle of a bridge to take a bunch of shots for HDR processing. These have variously been composed from 3, 5, and 7 exposures. A couple have ghosting but still looked interesting.

1.


2.


3.


4. Directly at the storm:


5.

6. Outside my work, some ghost cars


7. The freeway, taken from the cycle path on the way home - bad ghosting:

BTW, I like number 3. The light down that direction was amazing.

The 2nd one is my favorite; the water, buildings & sky look so ominous; yet the headlights of the cars show. Really nice! (all are great!)

Well recorded, Mick-

You have done a very good job, though some are a bit dark.

Thanks csa, Sarah, Forzahibs, and Craig.

Sarah, yes, I probably edited them a little too dark.

Forzahibs, it's amazing that the city still looks quite beautiful so soon after the floods!

BP - Really nice shots! You used HDR very effectively, not over processed, just very dramatic. The clouds (especially the last shot) are wonderful.

Thanks saly. I've been using picturenaut for the HDR processing. It has a reputation for producing more realistic-looking images, which often makes it unpopular. But I like that, and try to use it for these kinds of situations - and it's free

The atmosphere you caught in those shots sent shivers up my spine...
