Ice Trails and Embracing HDR Ghosting

Ice Trails, Mississippi River, Minneapolis, HDR, Winter, Bridge 9

Ice Trails on the Mississippi River next to downtown Minneapolis.

Most of the time when processing HDR’s we go to great lengths to avoid ghosting. In this case I embraced the ghosting factor as it added additional ice trails to the river below. I simply chose manual deghosting in Photomatix and processed the 5-shot HDR without selecting anything to deghost.

I’m proud to say this received Photo of the Day on Capture Minnesota on February 4th. The HDR category doesn’t get a lot of POTD’s so I’m glad this was well received. To see more of my submissions on Capture Minnesota you can visit my profile.
