London Tower Bridge Sunset

London Tower Bridge Sunset

I was lucky to have a nice weather when I visited London for a day. I wanted make some shots but I did not have much time. Of course it would not be smart to come back without shooting Tower Bridge. This is an HDR, 5 shots by Nikon D800 with 12-24 mm lens. I […]

New York, Roosevelt Island

New York, Roosevelt Island

I was in New York for a few days. I stayed at a friend’s place in Roosevelt Island. Her roof top had an amazing view. About 1 hour after arrival, I did not want to miss the first sunset of my visit, and went to the roof top. I used my tokina 12-24 mm lens […]

Hawaii, to home or to beach

Hawaii, to home or to beach

This particular image has also been shot in Maui Island. I used my tripod and cable release to shoot 5 bracketed images of the scene with 1 EV step. I then merged the files in Photomatix and further post-processed using Lightroom and Photoshop. I tried to avoid using too much color saturation espiecially at the […]

Karasu, The Lake Acarlar

This is my hometown in Turkey. I had this shot sometime ago and now I processed it. For this one I used my recent techniques to get the sky blues is and plus a touch of purple. First, when I tone mapped the image in photomatix, I made the temperature blueish -5, -6. It could be left […]

Istanbul, the new inhabitants

Istanbul, the new inhabitants

Here is again a retouch of my an old work. When I compare it to the first version that I made about 4-5 years ago, there is a huge difference. It seems that I changed/improved my post-processing very significantly. There is no shame with post-processing. When people ask, did you do photoshopping, I laugh at them. […]

Hawaii, the fire

Apparently I spent a lot of time shooting the sunset in Hawaii Sunset and sunrise times are great for photo  shooting, therefore, they are called “Magic Hour”.  I made this one by lowering my camera to the sand as much as possible. I tried to frame the sun, to get a long view of the […]

Sunset at Pacific

I made this one when we were driving from San Francisco to LA. We stopped on the way, at highway CA1, and watch the sunset. I made this HDR in photomatix then worked on it mainly in PS. I used a lot of dodge and burn to highlight the waves at the foreground and darken […]

While I was in Maui, there was a wedding at the coast. It was very beautiful weather, great sky. Surely I set up my tripod and made my shooting…

Munich, Road to the University

Time to time, I go back and reprocess my old works. It is interesting that how I can produce significantly different looking photos from the same source. This is another great aspect of making HDR photos. Even one cannot reproduce the same results easily This gives a lot of room to artist to create their […]

Hawaii, the blanket

Another sunset scene from Hawaii, Big Island. This photo is made by 5 images with 1 EV steps. I combined them in photomatix. At the initial settings, I chose  semi-automated ghost removal. By doing so, I selected only the sea and the wave, then for this are I chose only the brightest photo. Therefore, the […]
