Atop K.I.C.C – Chapter 2: Landmarks & Lights
As I had promised, Chapter 2 wasn’t too far away.
For the avid followers of the blog, Chapter 1 was about my
induction (ahem..scratch that, Initiation) to shooting from a really lofty height. Went well and the post I’ll admit was more of a trial & error. The thing with HDR imaging is that it brings such a richness of tone that if not careful, they overwhelm the picture. In chapter 1, I was more of groping around trying to feel this and that, and by bracketing (merging) up to 6 images.
Chapter 2 is more about appreciating the Structures that have stood the test of time and we fondly use them as landmarks, be it in meeting that loose date, your cousin from Ocha (upcountry), or simply as a reference point as you lie on your mobile phone on where you actually aren’t.
This chapter is also basically about appreciating how the city looks from a vantage bird’s eye view at night. i have this fascination about lights to be honest, because they simply bring the city to life. Life even when the city is supposedly resting.
So i used fewer images (3-4) and concentrated on the structures even as I still struggle with refining my tone-mapping skills.
So without much ado, Ladies & Gents, here is Chapter 2.
End of Chapter 2.
Chapter 3 you ask? You’ve gotta be kiddin’ me! Tame yourselves!
Anyway Chapter 3 will be when I hike back up..as I now, being a fully-fledged member of the photo frat, induct a newbie 🙂
Hope ya’ll have enjoyed. Keep it locked. Blessed week.
