View Full Version : HDR Sunset

Took this picture about 1am. This is my first HDR picture made of the 3 pictures with different exposures (-2 0 2). This HDR picture was made in Photoshop CS3.
I would really appreciate some comments and criticism on this picture.
I like the composition but I would have backed the focal point up to make the rocks a little sharper and take better advantage of the hyperfocal distance.

Thank you Jim for your comments. I wanted to backed the focal point more but I couldn't because there was no more space behind me in this height where I shot the picture.

*** Made some adjustments on the picture based on some tips I got, cropped the sky a little and added some contrast and adjusted the stone a little ***
I didn't make myself clear. I would have used a closer focal point (point the lens closer to the end of the rocks) which should bring the rocks and water into focus. The adjustment in contrast you made helped considerably from my perspective.
Do a search on "hyperfocal distance" to get a better understanding of what I meant about choosing a focalpoint.

Thank you Jim for your comments. I followed your advise and read about "hyperfocal distance". Always good to learn new things. I really appreciate it alot. This is exactly what I want a constructive criticism.
