Making of ‘The Church’ (Time-Lapse)
Learn more at [ frb.li/ptwdw ]

In this video, you see the entire post-processing work from merging the source photos into HDR images, via the panorama stitching, all the way to the editing stage where I change quite a bit of the lighting in the original scene around to shape the image according to what I had in mind.

Have fun!

Are you using Lightroom & Photoshop on the new Mac OS Sierra? The new OS might break these apps. Check out this post to see what can go wrong and how you may fix it.
Apple’s newest operating system was released a few days ago. While the temptation to immediately update is significant, especially given the breadth of new features in Sierra, there may be a compatibility problem. As with any release of new software, there...

How to Use Double Masking for Natural HDR Blending in Photoshop
Read more at [ frb.li/n9k5u ]

If you want ultimate control over your High Dynamic Range images, manual blending is still the way to go. But creating a perfectly blended image from two or more exposures using layer masks can be challenging.

In this excerpt from my Ultimate HDR Master Class 2017, I am showing you a method that I call double masking. Instead of using straight luminosity masks or a mask I created manually with the Brush tool, I’ll combine these two techniques to make a complex blending task much simpler and gain ultimate control.

Apple's iPhone 7 Camera - Tied for 7th place

Some news outlets claim that the new iPhone 7 is the third-best mobile phone camera ever.

Well, you would have hoped it's the best by far, right? But 3rd is not too bad either, you may say.

In reality, anyone who claims it's in third place needs to up their math skills.

The fact is: There are 6 phones that have better cameras, and 4 more phones that are just as good(according to DXOMARK).

Why is that important? Because there are plenty of better and more inexpensive options for you to get a good phone camera. Just keep that in mind...

I've never bought a smart phone because of its camera. That said, DxOMark's title for their iPhone 7 camera review is "Apple iPhone 7 camera review: better than ever". It's an extremely positive review. As for numbers, 3 phones scored 88, 3 scored 87, the iPhone 7 was 1 of 4 at 86, and the iPhone 6s Plus is 1 of 4 at 84. Those are negligible differences.

Looks like ON1 Photo RAW could be a tough competitor for Abobe's Lightroom. What do you think?
 
For me, Lightroom has been getting slower and slower and sloooower over time. I am on a cutting-edge computer and yet, it is agonizing at times.
 
I looks like ON1 is attacking exactly this weak spot of Lightroom, marketing their upcoming software as being really fast.
 
I am curious to see how this fight will play out.

Same here. LR is terribly slow, and I have one of the fastest machines you can buy. I'd love some competition in this field. I'll have to check out ON1

The Church - 9-Exposure HDR Panorama
Read more at [ frb.li/35kcy ]

This is a 9-shot HDR panorama of the Church of the Redeemer in Toronto, Canada. I shot it before I was visiting the Royal Ontario Museum just across the street of this place. I saw it from the corner of my eye and decided to pay a quick visit to it before I entered the ROM. What I found was an open, entirely empty little church with all those beautiful yellow, orange and wooden tones.

And the moral of this story is: Always pay attention to what's around you, even if you are on a mission.

Thanks for the feedback.  I'll try to use the program again and see if I have further problems.  Most of the time it is Color Efex that crashes my computer.  I'm running Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit.
