We recently took a nice Saturday morning drive to San Juan Capistrano. It is a small cute little town in SoCal. I was there to scout out future portrait sessions and brought along my camera to take a few shots. It was a typical sunny day in CA, so HDR was not in my mind. We walked along the train tracks and the Amtrak Train pulled up. Here you can catch the train down to San Diego if you would like! One day I will try it…unfortunately, it is not cheap! But I bet great views of the pacific!! After the people got off I set up for an HDR. Kinda an unexpected cool shot! A mid afternoon HDR! Enjoy your weekend!
From downtown Austin, TX….I have always loved photographs of train tracks and in my search this day I fround these old railway cars sitting there waiting to be HDR’d! A different view of Austin. Enjoy your day!
In keeping my run of Texas shots going…I have posted some pics recently from downtown (Tips Iron & Steel) on P2E and also some portraits (Marilyn Monroe door shot) on the Talke Photography blog. I love this location. If you live in Austin…its on 5th and Baylor right in front of the Amtrak Station. If you stand on the tracks, this is the view of Austin you get. Very cool. Just watch out for the Amtrak train and also the Union Pacific Line! I have lots more HDR’s from here…look for em soon!
Here is a different type HDR for me. I usually do not post the moody style HDR’s, but decided to give it a try. I added a Holga preset to get to above effect. I enjoy seeing photos of those moody dilapidated building rooms…with junk all over. One day I will find some! Austin is not an old industrial area….so maybe I’ll have to hit something like and old steel mill in Pittsburgh one day. If anyone knows of an area like this in or near Austin…let me know!
