“Sorry. I Wasn’t Expecting Company.”   8 comments

The interior of a cluttered farm shed with rusty implements and an old refrigerator in North Carolina

"Sorry. I Wasn't Expecting Company."


Coming in with a late post for the day…

I worked this image up to go along with an article I wrote recently, highlighting the differences between accepting the simple output from one HDR program versus giving a set of brackets a lot of love with different tools and programs.

On Friday, 1/21/11 the article posted on YourPhotoTips.com, and can be found HERE.  It’s called Express Yourself… Completely!

Taken inside an old barn and shed on a local farm, this is turning out to be one of my favorite locations due to its ‘target rich’ environment. The owner graciously allowed me to wander around freely, so I was able to grab some great detail shots this time. Being respectful, I resisted the urge to see if there was any cold beer in the fridge.

Nikon D7000, Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 lens, 17mm at f/5.6, seven exposures +/-1EV using Promote Control. Photomatix Pro, HDR Express, 32 Float, Nik Color Efex Pro, and Photoshop all had a hand in this one… but that was exactly the point of the article!

  3. Terrific shot. I love the rich detail. HDR works well with this subject and the processing is perfect, not overdone (always a matter of opinion of course)

  4. I’m with James on this one. Great shot and a fascinating subject.

  5. Nice shot, Rob! Great Detail.

  6. A great find Rob, although I would have checked the fridge! Thanks for the great comments and have a great weekend

  7. Great light Rob, really well done

  8. What a great shot – tool sheds are awesome for HDR, you’ve done a really nice job of processing this too, brought out the detail in the shadows and retained it in the bright areas as well.
