Honorable Mention

by on Aug.06, 2010, under Photography

I found out this evening that my Chevron Tower image was awarded an honorable mention in the second Unified Color HDR Photography competition. The version of the image entered was reprocessed from the original exposures using Unified Color’s HDR Photo Studio 2 software since that was what the competition required. I stuck to the rules and did no retouching afterwards so I’m not particularly happy with the final image (compare it to this one which was processed in Photomatix with retouch in Photoshop and Lightroom to see what I mean). That said, it was obviously good enough for the judges!

This was one of my top 10 images of 2009 and I am looking forward to going back down to Houston to shoot some more architecture some time in the next couple of months. I’ll probably reshoot this image with the new camera and ultra-wide lens since I was never 100% happy with the sharpness of the image taken using the Sigma 10-20mm. Watch this space near the end of the year for an update.
