Cape Canaveral, FL – Saturn V Booster (HDR)

From the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral…here is another version of the Saturn V Booster. I love all the shots from here, so why not convert one into black & white?  Looks cool!   Thats why Silver Efex Pro is great one click and this is the shot using “High Structure”.   With such a plug in its tough to choose  to shoot only in b&w.  If you do not have this plug in…download a free trial at the NIK site…you will want it asap!!

The tour at the Space Center in Florida was great…perfect for HDR’s.  We have one here in Houston, TX…I’ll get to it one day!   Have a blast!

  1. Those were exciting times watching those Saturn V’s launch. Must be amazing to see these up close.

  2. Great choice of b&w, Pete, and you’re right: Silver Efex Pro is awesome as are all the programs from NIK.
