I really thought I would end this day without anything to post. Weather was awful, I had little time off work, and all went quickly. Then I remembered I made a photo from my car, while waiting for the green light. I tried to capture that guy you see in the bottom left while crossing the scene. Just now I realized I managed to do it with some success. However, the original was much less interesting, so I first converted to hdr using my IG friend @ashcroft54 method: generate 2 exposures with filterstorm curves tool, then create single image with prohdr. After I made an extreme crop to the interesting part in Instagram, and applied one of my fav filters do add drama, toaster. Just to compare, here is the original:
Took this one while driving work, this morning. It's actually a crop of the original, and i used instagram's x-pro II filter to intensify the silhouette of Coimbra's University tower in the background.
If you follow me on instagram, you might have noticed this house before. It's situated close to my work, and i photograph it alot, because it makes great images. This one was shot at sunset, using ProHDR, and right after it stopped raining.
Another day with crap weather, namely nonstop rain. Funny thing is, in these conditions things that normally would make uninteresting photos, turn into great dramatic scenes. Take this old tech park rooftop. I used Pro HDR and instagram's lomo-fi to make contrast between the heavy sky, the aging signs of the building, the water over the rooftop and the colorful walls behind.
Today the weather was really awful, and i was not really feeling inspired. Anyway, while I was waiting for my wife in the car I started taking photos of the car wet windshield, focusing on the water drops...until I made this one...do you see the little face there? How awesome is that?
