Well after probably I would say around 10 hours of sorting, preparing and processing images, I have finally got them ready to post. I can then maybe go back to doing more important things, like gaming (that was dry sarcasm if you never picked up on that; it’s hard to convey sarcasm in words as whoever is reading it may be stupid).
So, what I’m going to do is just post most of the images that I liked the final result of. Most are HDR, muted tone maps and a couple of B & W images. Not really sure what order to do them in, and since I can’t figure out why I’m unable link to my Flickr page, I’ll embed them in the post; besides, wouldn’t want you wandering away from my before you’ve been through the post…
…anyway, here you go. I hope you like them. (Click on an image to open the gallery).
This is the bronze map I was sat next to. HDR colour version.
I used to sit here to eat my lunch when I worked over the road.
Same image but a muted tone map.
It’s a steep walk up to the waterfall and on the way up I loved these trees on the curve in the road and ensured I took some snaps on the way back down.
Tone-mapped Ceunant Mawr.
Yours truly sat in front of Llyn Padarn. I saturated my green jacket purposefully; well, it’s my favourite colour!
Looking over Llyn Padarn, with a long exposure to smooth the water. I also added glow in PP (post processing), to give a nice soft look.
HDR colour version of the trees.
B&W tone-mapped version.
On the little slate beach over-looking Llyn Padarn to Elidir Fawr.
An HDR crop of Ceunant Mawr; it’s very difficult to access this waterfall and I’m still not sure how you get to the bottom of it.
Muted panorama of Llyn Padarn; took me ages to get this to my liking.
Same as the previous B&W image, but no glow or filter applied and more grain.
You’ve seen this before! (This time with a straightened horizon, ahem).
Unfortunately, as the horizon wasn’t straight, I’ve fixed but PS has cropped off the bottom of the foot 😦
You’re welcome by the way 😉
Ciao for now.
