This week, I just couldn’t resist a little trickery, or more appropriately a little Photoshopery – but actually done with HDR and Photomatix tone mapping followed by tweaking in Photoshop. I’d been wondering about making an HDR image when using slow shutter speeds to get a blurred falling water effect. This one was made with seven shots. Of the seven shots used to make this HDR image, the shortest exposure – 1/40 second – was needed to get the sky correctly exposed; however, the water fall was not blurred. The longest exposure – 1 second – definitely blurred the waterfall and burned in the shadows as well. I suppose it is a little “over the top” as most HDR shots tend to be but still sort of interesting.
