Like I said yesterday, I fell in so much love with this image that I decided to continue working on it. The result? Four different looks representing different seasons. The first one, the spring one titled “A Fun Date,” was made by first processing three images into a Photomatix HDR and then bringing it into Lightroom for that beach look. The second, the summer one titled “A Surreal Date,” was again made by first processing three images into a Photomatix HDR and then bringing the result into Lightroom and adding some gradient lighting to make it more dreamy. The third, the fall one titled “A Mysterious Date,” was made by taking only the under exposure of my three image bracket and processing in Lightroom with some dark blue filters and vignetting. And the fourth, the winter one titled “A Black and White Date,” was again made by taking only the under exposure and processing in Lightroom using its built-in “Black and White/Red Filter” setting followed up by minor master touch tweaks.
All of them are available individually or as a collective panorama. Post your favorite of the five to comments.
