Sunset At South Shore of O’ahu (Hawaii)

Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed: http://goo.gl/C0jqxA

I already featured photo I took almost from the exactly the same spot while visiting Hawaii. The big difference though between two shots is the photo below I took at the sunset and the previously published shot was taken at sunrise.

It is not often you came across the place which is perfect for both sunset and sunrise photography. Makapu’u Point Lighthouse Trail on the O’ahu island of Hawaii is one of those amazing spots.

SHOOTING

This is the extreme example of sunset photography. I was shooting directly into the sun, but it was already partly shielded by the Koko Head Mountain making the shadows of the scene very dark. The light of the scene was very dynamic. When I checked the dynamic range of the HDR image during the processing phase, the value was 19.3 stops.

Here are some dynamic range values for you to compare:

Scene: 19.3 stops
Human eye can see: up to 14 stops of light
Sony a6000 sensor: 11.4 stops
Computer monitor: 8 stops
The human eye is considered to be the best and the most sophisticated optical device, but even a human eye can not see the entire range of the light here.

This was the perfect scenario to use HDR photography and I took 3 bracketed shots with 2EV intervals (-2, 0, +2) on a tripod.

PROCESSING

I started with merging 3 bracketed shots for HDR using new Lightroom Merge tool. 

Later I moved to Rapid Lightroom Preset-Based Editing, applying End of Summer preset from Landscape Collection and adjusting the exposure (image was underexposed) with the ToolKit.

The Lightroom Preset Editing Formula: End of Summer (1, 20, 31, 34)

In Photoshop, besides regular editing (contrast, color correction, noise reduction), I spent at least 20min to clean up the scene with the Stamp Tool and to remove tree branches from the bottom left corner

Also, with the help of the Topaz Star Effects plugin, I emphasized the starburst effect of the sun and to add the sun flare.

Bull race went awry
Bull race, a popular rural game is thrilling but unpredictable and might be risky at times. While in tent pegging, the horses have some idea about their direction, these bulls have no idea what they are doing. The driver is precariously perched on a wooden plank holding strings to control two bulls. Many a times he falls down, or bulls may be distracted and rush away from the racing track to charge in to spectators. Like in this picture, bulls have suddenly turned to right side, driver seems unable to control them Both the camera men covering the event look alarmed and still undecided in which direction to run to avoid the charging bulls.
