This is another one from Sharpsburg. I figured since I was up at an unholy hour I might as well make good use of the sunrise photos I took.
I honestly have no idea where I was in Sharpsburg when I took this image. I know I was on a farm based on the fence but don’t quote me on that. I just know I liked the image and went and setup my tripod and took the photos.
This is a photo that started as HDR and finished as something completely different. In fact, this is now officially the most masked image I have ever done. I created the HDR using Aurora 2017. I think took the original images and stack and blended them in Photoshop. I also used a new tool I’m playing with and let it blend the images as well. I then took all 3 of those images and stacked and masked them.
I then had a “master image” to work from and started to stack filters from Intensify Pro and Color Efex. I then had to blend them in. Finally a unsharpen mask and a sharpen. This helped with blending and bringing out the fence. It took something on the order of 90 minutes and it’s still not perfect but I’m happy.
