This is the final photo from the How-To Video I posted earlier today. Just check my stream to see that...
Many people asked for more explanation -- here it is: The "Fast" exposure was plucked from the 2nd set of five exposures where the leaves were clean and sharp. That was LR4'ed (a verb) to make it look as HDR as possible before re-integrating it with the whole via masking in Photoshop. That's sort of an advanced explanation, so I can understand how I might have lost a few people in there!
I believe you took bracketed shots at high ISO, so I thought you were going to tone-map those and then use the result...but I guess the leaves would still have moved across those exposures. So you just bracketed those to make sure you got one with an exposure you liked?
Great Picture. Allows me to remember my visits and wish. Wish I was there. Wish I good smell the sweet enchanting scent of the living ocean. Has anyone developed a camera that could feed all our senses ?
+Trey Ratcliff Very cool, I've not made it to the BVI's yet, but I've heard they are phenomenal. I've been to the Abacos many time though, and a few other Caribbean islands, and love them all so much.
I believe in being a kind person and helping anyone if I can. I preface this way beca[_]se I have to say, am I missing something? Its a nice pic, b[_]t I dont get the attention. The time I have lost typing this co[_]ld have been [_]sed to call my Mom and say I love her, ect. Same for 300+ others. I am sry if I there is a backstory for this. Peace and love to all. Not trying to be negative, God bless
