p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · HDR Monochromes - wildlife in Botswana


I have mixed feelings about HDR in general, coming from a old-school film background, but I can see its allure - and if it is treated and retouched carefully, it can create some very appealing images. Here is a selection I put together without too much retouching...

HDR monochrome 1 - elephant play






HDR monochrome 2 - lion pan






Monochrome 3 - buffalo






HDR monochrome - leopard

I normally prefer color, but these are nicely done Jamie. You will get more response if you post the photos here though ~ Ron

You do not have to join, but that would be nice. You can post directly from sites like flickr, and there may be a way to post from your site - without joining ~ Ron

Thanks Ron, I feel they need a bit more work to be perfect but I am just getting to grips with HDR and how I want it to look! Jamie

Welcome to the forum Jamie. Glad to see some more African wildlife on the forum. I dabble a bit in black and white and for me sometimes it works and sometimes not. These are very nice and would love to see more.

Welcome to the forum Jamie. Nice set you have introduced yourself with. The more I look, the more I like the panned lion.

Thanks, it is one of those images that you need to look into - I like doing pans behind brush or bushes, has a arty feel about it I think. Jamie

Very nice set of images Jamie,

I think the HDR + B&W effect has worked very well here and makes these very striking and also something a little different from the usual safari images.

I like the first three the best.

Paul.

I like the Buff. He's got that look, like you owe him money.

Thank you all for your comments - those images were processed with Photomatix, not in camera. It does an amazing job of creating HDR's from a single raw file. Most of those images would be nearly impossible to align if they were multiple frames blended together.

I have a photo trip in Botswana planned for the 28th October for 12 nights - only $3499.00 and staying in comfortable lodges. There are a couple of seats left for anyone interested! It is very good value and goes to excellent parks and reserves - http://www.jamiethomsafaris.com/affordablebotswa.html

Cheers, Jamie
