New on 500px : Spikes & Pears by rland by rland

a 4 shot (vertical) panorama with two exposures each (land at 1sec, sky at 1/5sec), manually blended with the help of luminosity masks.

i was struggeling hard with five slightly different versions (4gb tiff each) and could not decide which one to show off. okay, i finally did and i hope you like it too. if you don’t please tell me what went wrong.

“Spikes & Pears” ist the free translation of the name of the city in the midground: Dornbirn/Austria. the mountains in the background are swiss alps and just right to them the lake of constance can be seen.

New on 500px : Last Light on Generals Quay by jimgraham1952 by jimgraham1952

This image was taken just before sunset on Lower Lough Erne, County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland. A lee Big Stopper and Lee .3 nd grad were used. Luminosity masks were used to select the shadow and mid tone areas in order to enhance some of the details which was lost in the low light.

New on 500px : Now Comes Spring by Sean_Bagshaw by Sean_Bagshaw

In May I visited a stunning lupine meadow in the coast range of northern California with David M. Cobb. Shooting right into the setting sun provided just the right kind of back lighting for the flowers to appear lit by an internal power source. I was extremely fortunate to have perfect light and perfect timing for the bloom, which is only at its peak for about a week. I spent an evening and a morning here. It was a wonderful experience. I hope you enjoy the image. View on black!

This was a very challenging image to develop. Seven different exposures were blended for dynamic range and depth of field. I then made heavy use of Tony Kuyper’s new actions panel to gradually build in adjustments using just about every luminosity masking technique I know. The new Zone Masks section was particularly helpful. More information can be found here.
