Visions of Azerbaijan. Thistles at sunset.

The sun dips low over the mist covered mountains. Dispersing the last rays of light, scattering them across the vegetation.
These are the last rays of light this sun will cast in 2011. It’s new years eve and the sun is setting for the last time this year.

Interested in how I took these photos?
They are both HDR photos, 3 photos taken at 3 exposure values. +,- 2 EV and automated to HDR Pro in Photoshop CS5.1.
Set your camera to bracketing and continuous shooting mode to capture 3 photos in a row while holding your camera still.
Bring the photos in to your computer. In Photoshop click File>Automate>Merge to HDR Pro.

Make sure you check the ‘Attempt to align photos’ so you get minimum ghosting.
Happy HDR-ing.

I spent this christmas and new years in Azerbaijan, home to the 2012 Eurovision Song contest. This photo was taken in the mountains of Azerbaijan.
I would like to thank all of you my readers. Thank you for a good year! And happy new year to you all!

  1. I really like the first photo. I’ve been experimenting with HDR in Photoshop too and, although I’m not a fan of the over-processed look you can get, I really enjoy the results sometimes.
