Texas Shed

by | Jul 8, 2011 | Tips & Tricks | 1 comment

After Robert’s wedding, we stopped at a few places in Texas in the Dallas area. This old shed, now out of commission, was on a chicken farm that we toured. It was a drab picture originally, being taken in early afternoon. But I found a new Adjustment in Photoshop today called HDR Toning (Image > Adjustments > HDR Toning…) and thought I’d try it out. Perhaps I overdid it a little in this picture, but it’s a nifty way to make a single image (as opposed to a bracketed sequence of images) appear surrealistic.

    I like it. I don’t think it is overdone. Some pictures look good “overdone.” Of course, photography is an art and much of it can be opinion. For HDR, you could also try Fusion HDR. It is free and has some nice settings.
