Low Level Sunrise by ShogunMaki Low Level Sunrise by ShogunMaki
Low Level Sunrise

This is the Low Level Bridge in Edmonton, AB. I had processed a similar photo to this earlier in the year as an HDR but I really didn't like the way it turned out. I decided to go back and try again. This however is NOT an HDR. I used a technique where I used a single photo and processed it in #photoshop using layers of the same image at different curve and level adjustments. Creating masks to lighten dark areas and darken areas that were too bright. Tedious I know but I like the idea of having more control. HDR software can be annoying sometimes and I find it difficult at times to get the realistic results that I am looking for.

I would appreciate any and all feedback on this photo. Does it look realistic? Is it overdone? Let me know! Thanks!

Stunning beautiful; you've captured something almost perfect here. The natural water looks incredibly sharp and defined, but it's very well lit in blue considering the source of light is orange. The bridge and beyond is a bit hard to define things because of the overly prominent blue, almost like it's misted. For me the sunset behind the thick cloud layer is is the star of the show.

Looks fine to me! Some of the branches on the trees look a little burnt, but other than that I can't imagine ever being able to achieve this with hdr. It isn't quite as realistic as it should be but the feel is very good compared to most of what I have been able to achieve with hdr softare too.

Thanks! I noticed those branches after I posted it. That was a oops on my part with creating the layer masks. Trees are a pain to mask around. :)
