Sao Paulo – City View

Sao Paulo City View

I am so excited about this picture!  This is the first HDR processed image I’m so truly pleased with.  With only a couple of hours before having to leave for the airport, I decided to head to the top floor of the hotel and get a few shots of the city.  After all, all Sao Paulo is, well, is a city!  A great big city.

Taken autobracketed +/-1, processed in Photomatix and layered in Paint Shop Pro.

Pedestrians in Sao Paulo

Not being able to head out into the city and walk about, I’m forced to take pictures of just about anything.  Today I snapped this shot of two guys walking past the conference room window.  I had the camera set to take three photos in a row.

This evening I layered the images in Paint Shop Pro and them masked all of the image except the two guys on the first two layers, and unmasked the bottome later completely.

Well.. that’s all from Brazil.  Woot Woot!

This was my first run at a layered image usings masks.  The goal was to mask the top b&w image just around the fish to allow the color of the fish to come through.  Of course Picasa allows ‘focal b&w’ – but the shape of the object often prevents this from being used.

Taken in Olde Town, Conyers, Georgia with Panasonic Lumix FZ28.  Processed b&w with Picasa and then layered and masked in Paint Shop Pro.
