Golden Gate HDR

An HDR version of the Golden Gate Bridge during a break in a 3 day storm that hit San Francisco. The orignal, non-HDR version is here:



Looks best: View On Black


[Because of the exposure of this photo and some very valid criticism about the noise and artifacts generated through my rudimentary HDR processing, I have taken another stab at this photo which can be found here: In the newer photo, I converted the photos into a .tif file in Photoshop rather than using Photomatix to convert them. The result was much less noise. ]


I wanted to thank Paulo Antunes for his blog entry at Abduzeedo where he included this photo as one of 20 examples of HDR photography. I am honored to have my photo included with some truly remarkable captures and wanted to thank the author and allt he visitors from Abduzeedo for their kind words.


Also, my thanks to Smashing Magazine for selecting this photo to accompany their story on the Best of February 2008.


Thanks also to who has placed this photo on their front page:
