387 – Going up the country

I’m back to Vienna right now. This image is an HDR image from five bracketed exposures, shot this afternoon in Carinthia, not far from home. Nikon 18-200 at 18mm, f16, shot from the tripod. Tone-mapping was done in Photomatix, further post-processing in Photoshop.

The Song of the Day is “Going up the country“, but not by Canned Heat, no, this time by the legendary Bavarian band “Spider Murphy Gang” (they had their 30th anniversary this October), from the 2004 live album “Unplugged,Skandal im Lustspielhaus“.

One thought on “387 – Going up the country”

  1. HDR is still so new. Everything we do reveals new emotions, new views into our vision.

    This scene looks like a … scene. The lighting looks like set from a big budget Hollywood flick of the 50s. Last week a late night movie ran on the Turner Cable Network: Brigadoon. The announcer explained that the director, Vincente Minelli apparently was not given sufficient money to go to a location shoot in Scotland forcing him to do everything in the California studios.

    Gene Kelley, Cyd Charisse, and Van Johnson sang and danced their little hearts out in a super detailed scenic that Minelli labored over.

    He obsessed the details carefully lighting every millimeter of the scenes, arranging each leaf or twig to create creations which looked eerily like this image. And you mined down with your HDR to discover Minelli’s genius on your set… Nice.
