HDR On Vacation In Mexico

We all take our cameras on vacation and it's really neat when we produce a great HDR image like this one from Steve Flowers. Shot on the beaches of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico this image really shows HDR Expose 3 at it's best. We especially like the shadow detail Steve was able to produce. Read Steve's account below.



Here's Steve:

"Earlier this month I spent a wonderful week in Puerto Vallarta Mexico with my wife. Every afternoon clouds would form over the mountains giving hint to a killer sunset only to completely block the sunset all together. On the sixth and final night of our trip the conditions looked slightly different. The promising clouds got me moving down to Los Muertos beach where there is an amazing seahorse statue. The sun dipped below the horizon and 5 minutes later the sky came alive. I merged four frames in HDR Expose 3 that were shot on a Nikon D7100."

Adobe Layers Says HDR Expose 3 is "Even Better"



HDR photography has never been better. We're really proud when Adobe says that HDR Expose is "...a go-to choice for HDR processing". We're even more delighted when Adobe says "with version 3 ..., an already great app is even better."

HDR In New Zealand - Reed Hoffmann Checks In

Reed Hoffmann just checked in with new HDR photos of a location we want to visit - New Zealand. Reed is really showing his shooting and HDR processing chops with this image of the Franz Josef glacier. Read below Reed's account of creating the image.



Here's Reed: "This was on a trip I led to New Zealand where we hiked to Sentinel Point for an overview of Franz Josef glacier. It was a beautiful scene, combining the deep greens of foliage, white of the glacier and dramatic sky. To hold that rich color as well as the bright clouds, I decided to shoot a four-frame bracketed series. I only needed three of those frames to pull it together, using HDR Expose 3. It was shot with a Nikon D800, ISO of 100, shutter speeds of 1/125, 1/250 and 1/1000 at f/7.1, Nikon 16-35mm f/4 VR lens, hand-held (braced on a railing)."
