Light Trails on Marquam Freeway at Night - HDR

Please click here to view these light trails large!


This picture was shot on a tripod with three exposures (-2..0..+2 EV). I used Photomatix to create the HDR with tone mapping and detail enhanced. I increased the overall saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. Curve adjustment to increase the overall contrast. 1 layer mask in soft light mode at 50% gray, using brush tool to lighten and darken some areas of the image, to bring out details. Used Nik Sharpener Pro to sharpen image.


Just love the light trails on Marquam Freeway! The 3-exposure HDR really allowed me to capture enough light trails to combine them. Well, I guess you can do it in one looong exposure shot, too! Presented in full HDR!


I hope you guys are having a fun weekend! I am still figuring out where to shoot fall colors since it is still a bit early in the season.
