Sometimes a picture looks better than the real thing. When I shot this, I didn’t think it looked all that impressive. Processing the bracketed shots as HDR makes this scene of a path lined with trees look serene and tranquil. The noisy tourists were all behind me at this stage :).
Shot using a 28-70mm Sigma f/2.8 lens on a Nikon D7000. Processed in Adobe Lightroom, Photomatix Pro and NIK Color Efex Pro.
I took this picture at a friend’s house in Newport, Wales. This year I missed the tulip blooms in my garden as I was out-of-town over the 2 weeks these bloomed. I have removed all distracting greens from this photo to enhance the glow from the tulip. Shot using a 50mm f1.8 Nikon lens and processed in Lightroom.
