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.

Pittsburgh, PA (Infrared)

Pittsbugh IR_Talke
The view of Pittsburgh, PA from atop Mount Washington in Infrared. Not a winter photo, but taken in the middle of the summer! I gave it the old time look for the classic “Burgh” shot.

San Diego, CA – Downtown (HDR)


From San Diego, CA a view looking away from the city at sunset. If you are staying downtown at this location you can catch planes flying into town over these houses! This view was from the Holiday Inn – 13th floor – view from my balcony.

Austin, Texas – Under the Bridge (HDR)


Its summer and in Texas that means you are cooking!! Its nice to be in SoCal…we are a little inland and its hot as well here! Just last nite we had a few welcome back earthquakes…4.5. Not bad, but a little shaky!! =) This shot was from a photo walk I did with the HDR Mafia Group from Austin. Miss those guys! I need to start a group here in SoCal!! Later this year, once I get settled…I’ll see what I can do. If you are in SoCal and shoot HDR…just let me know. Have fun and stay cool!

New York, NY – Radio City Music Hall (HDR)


From the city that never sleeps…New York City…and HDR of the famous Radio City Music Hall. Love this city! Wish I could visit soon!

It is a little busy around here these days. We are moving soon to SoCal and unfortunately, the blog will slow down for a few weeks. Probably 1 post/week til July. I also have a new logo (on today’s picture) and am in the middle of re-branding to Peter Talke Photography. I also have some BIG projects in the works…I will keep you posted!

Later this summer and in the future…look for some cool HDR and IR shots from Orange County and the LA Area! I used to live there 7 years ago…and it will be nice to go back and look at the area with a fresh eye and some new skills! Have fun!

A shout out to Bek Davis Web/Development Design! Bek created my new logo and she did one fantastic job! If you are thinking about a new look…send her an email!! Thanks Bek!! You rock!
