HDR Photography “Colorful San Francisco”
HDR Photography “Colorful San Francisco” – San Francisco has one of those distinctly unique skylines that really showcases the colorful culture of the people who live there. Every neighborhood offers a plethora of colorful buildings, ornate private homes, and independent restaurants. It’s impossible to be bored in San Fransisco! I was lucky enough to stay at a hotel in Chinatown that had a killer view of the skyline leading all the way up to the water. I was even able to capture Alcatraz island in the background of the shot, which was so much more than I could ever hope for! When I found this super secret spot, I had lots of time to compose the perfect photo. The sun was setting and it created this beautiful mix of hazy blue shadows and golden highlights. This shot was without a doubt one of the greatest unplanned surprises of the trip! Check out the larger version of this photo here or on Google Plus!

To process this image, I used the Presetpro Creative Flow Lightroom Presets, Profiles, and Brushes (I used Lightroom Profiles included in The Creative Flow to color grade this image). Next, I created a copy of this image in Aurora HDR and used the Presetpro Aurora HDR Presets. Finally, I imported all images into Photoshop to blend and do a little sharpening.
