Andalusian Images part 3

Thanks a lot for the encouraging feedback on my first two series of HDR-pics! (part 1 | part 2)! I know that HDR processing has been a little “overstretched” recently. But even though high dynamic resolution images often look “hyper-realistic”, I must say that these photos match the Andalusian colors as seen by the naked eye much more than a normal picture. Like Vilém Flusser used to say, photography does *not* picture reality, but rather constructs technical images. And here goes the third part my series – I took all the pictures in Gibraltar. From gibbons to Africa – enjoy! Please note: all images are available in large size – just click on a pic to load the 1280-pixel version.

HDR pics from Andalusia, part 2

I’ve just uploaded the second set of Andalusian HDRs which I took during my holiday in October (which was over far too soon btw). The first series of photos is available hier. I used my Canon EOS 40D with a 28-135 lense (the new Sigma 10-20 3,5 was added to my equipment later when we drove to Gibralatar :mrgreen:) and Photomatix to process the HDRs. This series contains a couple of beach-shots from Costa de la Luz (near Cohnil) as well as a some view of Vejer de la Frontera, a small village on top of hill. If you visit Vejer, don’t miss restaurant Trafalgar – especiall their Ceviche (tuna-carpaccia marinated in lime juice) is just awesome.

HDR-photos: Andalusian colors

I just returned from Andalusia yesterday – the climatic shock was quite heavy: from the sunny skies of wonderful Spain straight to clouded, rainy Vienna. So I chose visual escapism and edited the first series of my HDR-pics from Andalusia. During the last 11 days Linzerschnitte and me travelled through the province of Andalusia, from famous Sherry-distilleries in Jerez via the beautiful white Cadiz to British Gibraltar. Plus we stayed in Sevilla for a couple of days, tasting Tapas and envying the Spanish folks for their siesta. I’ll post a couple of travellingtips and more photos later – here’s the first series, comments highly appreciated (as always :mrgreen:)
