Bali is an island and province of Indonesia. The province includes the island of Bali and a few smaller neighbouring islands, notablyNusa Penida. It is located at the westernmost end of the Lesser Sunda Islands, betweenJava to the west and Lombok to the east. Its capital of Denpasar is located at the southern part of the island.
With a population of 3,890,757 in the 2010 census, and currently 4,225,000 as at January 2014, the island is home to most ofIndonesia's Hindu minority. According to the 2010 Census, 84.5% of Bali's population adhered to Balinese Hinduism, 12% to Islam, and most of the remainder followedChristianity.
Bali is the largest tourist destination in the country and is renowned for its highly developed arts, including traditional and modern dance, sculpture, painting, leather, metalworking, and music. Since the late 20th century, the province has had a rise in tourism.
This one was one of my first attempts at perspective blending back in the day... before I knew that it was even a thing. In this I utilized two different focal lengths to achieve the look I was after. I shot the foreground/midground areas at 16mm (focus stacked with 5 focus points) to get that "wide angle" look, then panned slightly upward and zoomed in to about 24mm and photographed the mountain/background to bring it in a little closer. The stitching was done by hand after some warping, masking together the different focal lengths across where the midground and background meet. After all the tedious blending was done, it was my standard approach of working the light with some dodge/burn layers, some luminosity masking to balance the tonal values throughout, some texture work, and some color work painted in by hand. A couple hours of work total. This may be a bit over the top for some, but I quite like the surreal look in this one.
Anyways, I recently released a new post-processing instructional video. It's packed with some unique techniques and theories about processing you may not find anywhere else. People seem to really be enjoying the videos and have had nothing but great things to say, so I think they are helping people... it's been awesome to see the many before/after shots people have been emailing me. Be sure to check the videos out if you are into that sort of thing. It's all on my website, as well as more photos, photo tour info, processing instruction via Skype like everyone else is doing, etc, etc. - Ryan Dyar
