a golden treat

I got numerous praises for what I did with the "golden gate bridge turns 75."

 

But, it was not perfect from many angles. I was not happy with the chromatic aberration. One on the rocks at the bottom left and on the left side of the bridge.

 

There were more problems that I knew when I posted it the first time. The biggest headache I had was the breaking up of the steel cable at the end of the bridge and both steel beams were crooked. These were caused by HDR processing using Photomatix.

 

So, I decided to rework this great image of the Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco.

 

Also, I am revealing that the clouds were just added to the original 5 exposures to make it more dramatic. That was the toughest job on this one.

 

If you open both versions in different windows, then, you can compare them and see what I did with this latest offering.

 

This Golden Gate Project is included in my upcoming book, HDR UNLEASHED, which will be available in July. I will show you how I managed to produce this HDR.

 

Thank you for your eternal support.
