San Diego, CA – Skyline HDR

San-Diego-Skylione-BSan Diego Skyline_Talke
Photography is amazing. So many styles, so many options, so many other photographers. I enjoy reading, looking for inspiration and checking out my friends great work! One friend is Jimmy McIntyre. He has published the recent HDR One Magazine. I had added an article into the great magazine a few months back on HDR Composites.

He runs a great blog also called…Through Strange Lenses. Check out his work…its fantastic! On his blog last week I saw his post on a Cityscape Photoshop Tutorial. I have HDR’d a few skylines in the past and had those boring water reflections. I decided to follow his instructions to spice up one HDR from San Diego.

Magically it made the image so much better!!! I added a border to give it a poster feel. Thanks Jimmy for the inspiration!!! I will add this to my image options in the future!!

You can see what one of my old versions without the reflections looked like here….San Diego HDR.

    Wonderful shot Pete! Love the reflections!

  2. Nice photo. Since I have never seen the bay that calm, I am guessing that the reflection was created by inversion of the skyline in post.
