no, this is not regarding Paypal or PayperPost, i am not (yet) into those. what i am referring to is Post Processing, digital post processing, that is. yeah, it's about photography and i needed more than guts, kapalmuks to be exact, to post something about it.
warning though, i am no expert so forgive me, i am just experimenting.
my months in flickr, particularly in pinoy kodakero, exposed me to some techniques being used by seasoned photographers from all over, how to compose a shot, seeing things from different angles, and yes, including some stuffs on how to improve your picture.
one of them is High Dynamic Range or HDR (wiki defined it very well).
some people might be turned off by this because it may appear to be a manipulation of the image taken, but for me, as long as no part was added or removed, and only the exposures were changed, i'll give it a try. besides, i am a poor point and shoot user and might need some of these to stretch the limit of my camera.
that's the original image (long exposure), and after making two copies of it with different exposures (over and under exposures), i collate them into one picture, adjust the contrast, balance the light and more shadow, warmify it a little, put a little glow and voila! naaliw naman ako!
i think i still need more practice but for a first time effort, not bad at all. the downside of it? nakakaaliw syang gawin!
