Parque Tayrona, Colombia

    Newer Older

    The parque Tayrona in Colombia is a natural preserve close to Santa Marta in the Caribean coast. Often, photos can be made to look prettier than the real thing. This is hard to do with the parque Tayrona. You have to be there to really appreciate it.

    This is an HDR of three handheld photos. Carrying a tripod around parque Tayrona is not fun as it is somewhat inaccessible. Blended and tonemapped using Photomatix Details Enhancer. In PS:
    - Imagenomics Noiseware.
    - Smart sharpen except the sky.
    - BW conversion using a red filter and belnding that on top of the HDR using luminosity. This created the deep contrast in the clouds.
    - Curves and a bit of dodge and burn.
    - Nik Foliage filter on the vegetation.

    Nice break from the rain and snow photos. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays.
