Karasu, The Lake Acarlar

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

By doing so, I selected only the sea and the wave, then for this are I chose only the brightest photo. Therefore, the […]

Hawaii, sunset

Another HDR in Hawaii, and again sunset In this one, I lower the camera to the ground, and try to get the movement of the water as well as the lights from the sun. How did I get the water clear as if it was taken with a single fast shutter speed? Well, I made […]
