Cutting Through the Park

Here is another shot from the little video I did with Scott Kublin. He followed me around with a video camera for a while and asked me questions. It wasn't planned or anything, but it came out pretty good! I helped him and Rick a bit with their HDR photography while we moved around Olympic Park. That link above takes you to the short version of the video. The longer one is avail in Newsletter #3 -- you get a link there when you subscribe.


There is a curvy street that cuts through the middle of Olympic Park in Atlanta. It wasn't too far from here where that bomb went off in 1996 Atlanta. I was actually there with my friend Scott Sadowski when it went off! I was not too close to the blast, so I was not in any danger... but we did hear it and see the commotion. So I was there for that bombing AND I was in NYC during 9/11 and saw the 2nd plane hit the WTC. I had meetings in the financial district that day, and we ended up getting stuck in NYC for many days while the airports were shut down. Again, I was not close enough to be in danger... But... I have a knack for being in sketchy situations, I guess!

    Wow! Amazing shot Trey! Hard to believe you near both of the terrible events. It had to be a surreal moment to witness 9/11. I just posted a shot very similar to this but it is not nearly as smooth... I use noiseware like you mention in your tutorial but for night shots, it doesn't always work. Do you also mask in the original sky for your night shots too? If so, how much? Thanks.

    Thanks all!

    Matt - no - sometimes I only mask in the original... it depends on noise - really . I'm more likely to mask in the daytime sky
