Martin took some cracking HDR pictures down by the Lake yesterday afternoon amongst the storms.

For the photo buffs here are the settings:

Nikon D5000 Sigma 10mm
HDR – 3 frames EV1.3 – Photomatix merge
Processed Camera Raw layers in Photoshop to bring back highlights and details in the clouds
One soggy camera

Looking at the camera specs, I’d say that’s the same Martin who was with us on the #CSIROTweetup for the Mars Rover launch.

He takes wonderful photos. A great eye for composition and angle. He did great things with the big dishes at Tidbinbilla.

I want to pay good money for a print of the first photo to put on the wall.

Any chance you could ask Martin about the possibility of a high-res/print version?

Man, the High-res version of that looks like something straight out of Myst or something. Awesome.

cheers all – if that’s not hi-res enough – I have the original file – which is just over 10Mb. I have actually never printed out any of my recent pictures, so would be curios to see one large :-)

Hah! Myst. I so didn’t get very far in that game. But I did wander around the island a lot…
Still got it.

😀 Great work, Martin! What software did you use to create the HDRs?

Photomatix for the merge and Photoshop for the post processing – it says so in the post. I can understand how you missed it though as it’s inbetween to two cracking shots! 😉

Awesome photos.

On a side note, can anyone confirm that it’s the plaque that accompanies the globe sculpture that has a spelling mistake / grammatical error on it?

I remember someone mentioning it many moons ago but I can’t find reference to the text anywhere on the Interwebs.
