The Path to the Tower - HDR by EOSthusiast The Path to the Tower - HDR by EOSthusiast
The Kassablanca Tower, this time from the front. Location: Kassablanca, Jena (Germany)

Pretty proud of this HDR, used 5 different exposures and tonemapped it in Photoshop. Composition and angle may not be omptimal, but I think it still works.


Please don't use without permission

EDIT: Now with non-DA watermark.

Wow wow wow!
Great image for HDR, you did a fantastic job. Only thing I could say is I wish the colours were a little more saturated as
opposed to muted.. It's still pretty awesome though =]

Thanks, glad you like it! :w00t:

Personally, I don't like over-saturated HDRs, and I don't think it's fitting here, because it was already dark, so colors are bound to be less saturated. ;)

Thank you so much! Yes, seeing the sparkling snow when I was pretty eerie for me as well, maybe it does come from another world? :D There were some weird lights in the sky that night, who knows... ;P

As for the DA watermark, yeah, it really spoils things. I may have to go back some time and remove it from some of my earlier submissions...

You're mostly welcome, and sorry for my mistakes in writting, I guess it was the emotion =D=D
Weird lights in the sky, really??? It does not suprise me that much =D
I saw a lot of work on DA spoiled with Watermark. It would have been too bad on such a wonderful pic :)

Yeah, if you look in my gallery, there's one called Lightplay, you can see a green light in the sky - although it's probably just a reflection :D but it is from the same night.

Wirklich super gelungen die Aufnahme und auch die Nachbearbeitung gefällt mir sehr gut. (HDR auch mit PS?)

Leider macht das DA Wasserzeichen dieses schöne Bild zunichte. :(
Vielleicht kannst du dir ja noch einen Namenszug oder ein eigenes Wasserzeichen erstellen, was dann nicht ganz so zentral liegt und dann auch nicht mehr den Gesamteindruck stört.

PS: In welcher Stadt steht denn der Kassablanca Tower?

:D :D Na, das ist doch jetzt ne Augenweide! ;)

Ich hatte die ersten Bilder hier bei DA auch noch mit dem Wasserzeichen, aber man kann leider nicht die Position bestimmen, wo es hin soll. Mittig stört es dann doch sehr. Irgendwann hab ich dann angefangen , einfach meinen Namenszug mit drauf zu bringen und bin damit im Moment recht zufrieden. >>>>[link]

Erstmal danke für die Kritik! :) Ja, HDR wurde auch in Photoshop (CS5) gemacht, genauso wie Tonemapping. ;)

Das mit dem Wasserzeichen stimmt, da wollte ich mir noch was einfallen lassen für meine ganzen Photos; hab mir bloß einfach noch nicht die Zeit dazu genommen. ;P Werd die, bei denen das DA Logo stört, dann nochmal updaten mit nem schöneren Wasserzeichen.

Der "Kassablanca Tower" hat eigentlich gar keinen Namen, ist schlicht der Turm vom Kassablanca, einem Kultur/Jugendzentrum in Jena, Thüringen. Oben drin ist ein nettes Café, aus dem ich auch ein paar andere Fotos geschossen habe.

Da kommen Erinnerungen hoch. Als Kind bin ich diesen Weg wöchentlich gegangen um in den als Turnhalle genutzten Lokschuppen zu kommen, der jetzt das Kassa ist. Später dann um einige der besten Abende & Nächte erleben zu dürfen. Kassa fetzt! :)

Good composition, actually. The walls do bring the focus of the shot right to the tower :)

Glad you think that way. :D I still think the tower could be a little more in the center ;P
