Hoboken HDR Photos of the Day – Maxwell Place Near Sunset

Maxwell Place from Pier 13 Hoboken 8-24-2013 HDR

Here are two photos of Maxwell Place in Hoboken near sunset yesterday. I used HDR but tried to subdue some of the extreme features of HDR and produce an effect that is painterly but still somewhat photo realistic. Yesterday was a great weather day for walking around and taking pictures.

  1. i am curious as to why these look like drawings and not photos as the title indicates. How (and why) do you do this? what does this "HDR" mean and achieve?

  2. Joe Bakes – Fair question.

    The technique I use for producing many of my photos but not all is HDR which stands for High Dynamic Range. It is actually at least 3 images at different exposures that are merged to give the photo more visual pop or range. I use a software tool called Photomatix Pro to process the three images into one. One of my favorite effects produces a painterly effect that is indeed present in the two photos above. If you google the term HDR you will find many photos using that technique not only in this area but worldwide.

    As for why I do this technique, I like it as it creates more than just a photo. Not everyone one is a fan of HDR and I am still learning but feedback for some of my better photos has been positive and I have even sold a few of these. To me they are more visually interesting than a iPhone or normal photo and take more time to create.
