HDR-ed images of the North Fraser River in Vancouver

leave a comment »

For the last several months I have been borrowing images from the blogosphere for tweaking with Picnik and posting here. Last night I decided to walk to the north shore of the North Fraser River here in South Vancouver.

I clicked two images which I have HDR-ed with Picnik and I do like the result that I got

First the Moon and Mt Baker:

Then Sunset over the N Fraser River:

Yes it’s a pretty picture and the HDR effect seems more notional to me.

So I decided to use Picnik to see what effect that could be developed with more color saturation and more pronounced HDRing.

The Picniked effect offers a better visual IMHO.

A charming photo vs. an interesting visual effect

I like to play around with photo images to re-render them into interesting visual effects. Sometimes these effects take on in my eye the look and feel of an art object because of the blending of material form, lighting and teased out colors.

Here’s a charming photo borrowed from Flickr

Now here is the visual effect I produced using Picnik

I prefer the visual combination of form, light and color in the latter digitized image.

English Bay fireworks re-rendered

with one comment

I have tried a few times to get images of fireworks and was never very happy with the results.

The image below was copied from flirkr.

I did a little tweaking with Picnik and kind of like this result ↓↓

And then there is this view with Inukshuk and water in the foreground after re-rendering

When does a photograph turn into a piece of art

with one comment

With digital photography and photo editing on any digital processor I find it interesting to play with some photos. Here is an arty rendition of a Siwash Rock image. It is a unique feature of the Stanley Park Seawall walk and I have seen at least one remarkable artistic rendition of it by Roy Vickers:

I used the HDR effect offered with Picnik and some color editing.

Some photos of this piece of Stanley Park legend taken at low tide give a quite different view of the Rock, as portrayed in the blog below!
