311. I Found The Fall - Part.I

by Ricardo November. 07, 2010 5583 views

Ok, So I decided to Stop my macro sets just for an instant (I don't want you to get annoyed about my constant pictures about bugs or always macros or close ups. )

I've been amazed by many of you with your Autumn shots, about the vivid shots, the colors, the simply beauty that autumn can be. And I wanted to do the same, but in my area, (i mean the closest forest), is a pine area, so I had no hope for doing something like that.
Although Today I went to Guimarães [en.wikipedia.org] (Place known as the cradle of Portugal - I took pictures of the castle, later on I'll also post it lol), and I went to the city park, and I found the REAL Autumn that I wanted.
So expect to see these series (maybe more 3 posts I guess), and I hope you can enjoy it, if you enjoy it as I do.

Process:
* In this set, I decided to make 1 paronamish shot of an old house inside the park
* I made 4 of the pictures in HDR because I wanted to give it a bit more detail and color to it.
* The sharpness seems ok to me.
* I was about to make some of these, and others that are yet to come in BW, but hey, I should let them in color, because that is the spirit of the fall right? what do you think?

Acho muito bem que também tira fotos de paisagens, ainda por cima agora com a câmara nova. E tira muito bem, está um set bonito, principalmente a 2ª está muito linda.

Lovely shots. A bit of a problem with the grey HDR "mist", I don't know how to tackle that although it's usually better if you use tone compression rather than "detail enhancement" (I'm talking Photomatix here, I don't know which program you are using).

I say bravo Ricky! New and beautiful ! A post in B&W of the autumn would not have made the same effect, and I have a preference for 4

Glad you found autumn there. I love the various paths. I think that b/w would be interesting to look at, but yes, I agree that in the spirit of fall, they should be in color. :)

You know, I really enjoyed hiking or driving through Portugal along the Douro or in the area of Guimarães and finding those beautiful, old, stone houses that were partly in ruin - entire villages sometimes. They are so enchanting. That is why I really like seeing number 4. I can't wait to see your pics of the Castelo de Guimarães. I also remember well the beautiful old houses up behind the castelo. The doorways are beautiful!
