You managed to travel around Spain a lot whilst you lived here, where was your favourite place for taking photo´s because that is so different than atmosphere, history etc.

Aragon and surrounds I think ... I always loved that area
Cuenca, Teruel and Albarracin

Closely followed by Galicia which was beautiful, if not a little wet :lol:

Those photos are amazing. Same Question as Armchair, did you get that effect solely though the use of camera or have you also edited the photos. If so, what did you use? cheers

Sorry, I´m new to this. That question was referring to Mitzyboys pics on the 1st page.

Hi Francis

Mitzy's not around very much these days so I'll answer on his behalf if that's OK.

He uses a technique based on HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography which involves taking a number of photographs (typically 3 or 5) in very quick succession of the same scene at different exposures. The camera must be capable of AEB - Automatic Exposure Bracketing - most good cameras are.

These images are then downloaded and intelligently merged using software such as Photomatix (which I use) which is around £30 from memory.

The prime reason for doing this is to even out exposure across the whole image - i.e. lighten the dark bits and darken the light bits.

The software has further functionality to allow processing of the images to produce the pleasing effects Mitzy achieves.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for asking. I am around, but I lurk :-)

I havent taken an HDR shot for ages, as I tend to try and get the required effect as a one off shot

Of the shots you speak of, only the first shot is HDR iirc, processed as per Jimenatos description. The others are single shots, processed in a CS6 Photoshop package using camera RAW

Here are some of the recent ones Ive done / re done.
