This HDR image was photographed at the Mission in San Juan Capistrano, California. The Mission is a photographically rich location, and an overall beautiful place to experience. This archway leading to a fountain created a perfect opportunity to shoot in HDR during the bright sun of mid afternoon. The image was processed with Photomatix and a texture layer was added for a painterly touch. (Email me for a great Photomatix discount).
We work with textures in my online courses that starts tomorrow at BetterPhoto.com. Textures are a wonderful way to enhance your imagery. I also use texture layers with my infrared photography, which adds richness and depth. Classes are filling up quickly, and there's one more day left for the $20 off course coupon!
