Landscape, Photo Tips

I think there were 87 people in this scene when I took a series of three images for my HDR image of Double Arch in Arches National Park, Utah.

Photomatix did a great job “crunching” the images. And . . . Photoshop CS5 ‘s Content Aware Fill did an amazing job removing the people, most of whom were moving during my exposures. Personally, I think Content Aware Fill is the best feature of Photoshop CS5.

Today’s tips: Shoot HDR in high-contrast situations. Check out Content Aware Fill in CS5. Try some landscape photographs with a fish-eye lens, as I did here: 15mm full-frame fish-eye on my Canon 5D Mark II.

Well, I’ll catch you tomorrow with another photo and some tips.
