Grand Canyon’s Amazing Textures (Arizona)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed:
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/grand-canyons-amazing-textures-arizona/

HDR Processed: Lightroom, Photomatix, Photoshop
Bracketing: 3 shots (-2, 0, +2)

This year it was my first visit to Grand Canyon. Due to my flight cancellation in Toronto I had to change itinerary of my driving trip through the land of canyons. It meant that instead of 2 days dedicated to exploration of Grand Canyon I had only 1 day.

The good new was that weather was great with the regards to travel and landscape photography. It was sunny, the air was crystal clear and with thick white clouds.

I took many of the photos trying to maximize the effect of dramatic skies over the Grand Canyon. But for the featured photo I took different approach. I decided to emphasize different types canyon’s textures and colors by excluding sky completely.

Sunrise at Hanauma Bay Rim Trail (Hawaii)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed:
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/sunrise-at-hanauma-bay-rim-trail-hawaii/

I took this photo while visiting Hawaii for the first time. The highlight of the trip was early morning hike along the Hanauma Bay Rim Trail on O’ahu Island.

It was a beautiful and warm morning but when I reached the top of the crater the wind became extremely strong and gusty. I had to hold my tripod with the both hands to minimize the camera shakes and to prevent it from flying away.

SHOOTING

The light of the scene was very dynamic with the bright sun and the dark shadows. I knew from the beginning that in order for me to pull this shot I had to shoot for HDR. I took 3 bracketed shots with 2EV intervals (-2, 0, +2) plus I used exposure compensation -1EV so the actual exposure values of the shots were -3, -1, +1.

PROCESSING

I keep experimenting with my editing workflow trying to streamline it and make it more efficient.

For today’s shot, I decided to stay away from pure Natural Look. I wanted to try something more creative and maybe even edgy.

First, I merged 3 bracketed shots for HDR using new Lightroom Merge tool. I outlined this technique in my latest tutorial “Lightroom HDR – Natural Looking HDR In Lightroom”.

After I produced HDR image I used a Lightroom preset based editing.

I started applying different presets from my Landscape Collection to HDR image. I selected the following looks that I liked the best: Brocken Clouds, Skyshine, Clock Tower and Tropical Morning.

After I played with ToolKit adjustments and compared 4 version again, the obvious winner was Broken Clouds look.

Un amour
Bonjour ma lumière du jour je ne peux concevoir la vie sans tes rais du matin.
Tu es le souffle qui remplit mon corps de ton oxygène et qui fait irriguer le sang
dans les veines de mon cœur.
Tu es l'espoir de mes espérances qui me donne d'avantage de courage à aller
toujours de l'avant et être optimiste en permanence.
Ta présence en elle seule me rend le plus riche du monde puisque tu es l'Amour
qui me procure le sourire, la gaieté et la joie de vivre.
Je te déclare mon Amour éternel "Je t'aime ". Le 27 juin 2016. AB

TTIM 30 – On The High Mountains with Erin Babnik

Some people explore the world right and left, north and south. Others, like my guest for this episode, +Erin Babnik, prefer to explore it by going up and down and by climbing the peaks of the Alps or of the Californian Sierras to capture some amazing photographs of the high mountains.

Snowless Winter Sunset (Montreal)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed:
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/snowless-winter-sunset-montreal/

The only real challenge I had with the shot was my long shadow being cast over the grass by the setting sun. I had to deal with it in post processing by masking it with the Stamp Tool in Photoshop.

Forillon National Park From Above at Sunrise (Quebec)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed:
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/forillon-national-park-from-above-at-sunrise-quebec/

HDR Processed: Lightroom, Photomatix, Photoshop
Bracketing: 5 shots (-2, -1, 0, +1, +2)

This photo is from my latest trip to Forillon National Park, which is located at the Atlantic coast of the Canadian province of Quebec. I have already featured this spot in one of my Photo Location Guide articles. This time, the weather was not very favorable for travel and landscape photography. It was unusually hot with humid air and no clouds for the duration of my trip. The only time with acceptable conditions was during sunrise hours.

My schedule was simple. I woke up for sunrise, shot for 2-3 hours and then left all of my photo gear at the motel. Then, I spent the rest of the day hiking, whale watching, kayaking, and bringing only my point-and-shoot camera (Lumix LX7).

That morning, I decided to climb Mont Saint-Alban and take some aerial shots from the observation point. After the steep hike with all of my gear, I managed to take a few interesting shots before the last cloud disappeared and direct sunlight made the landscape look lifeless and boring.

I was happy that I could capture such an amazing scene, but I was dead tired and it was only 8am. During the rest of the day, I relaxed at the beach and sipped beer.

Hour at Niagara Falls (Canada)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed:
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/blue-hour-at-niagara-falls-canada/

HDR Processed: Lightroom, Photomatix, Photoshop
Bracketing: 3 shots (-1, 0, +1 )

Niagara Falls consist of 3 separate waterfalls. The biggest and most impressive one is Horseshoe Falls which lie mostly on the canadian side of the Niagara River. Two other ones are American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls which are located on US side. When you walk along Niagara River, you have a magnificent view of each falls, but due to the narrowness of the river, it is not easy get all 3 of them into one composition.

This featured photo is my attempt to get the entire Niagara Falls area with all of the three falls into a single frame. I shot it from Rainbow Bridge, which connects US and Canada. In order to get to the bridge, you have to cross the Canadian border and the bridge itself is actually neutral territory.
