Hole with a View by Isaac Vaisman M.D., FACRO

November 2019 - Hole with a View

About the Image(s)

Hole with a view was created in January 2017 in a fishing village outside La Havana-Cuba using a Nikon D5 with the Nikkor lens 28-300 mm f/3.5-5.6 at 105 mm and with these settings: ISO 400, f/16 and with three different exposures times (HDR), two sets of images one focused on the wood, and the other set focused on the fort across the water. The two sets were processed in Aurora HDR, and then aligned and blended in photoshop.
It was close to noon on a very bright day. This rusted looking wall was the remnant of a boat just sitting on the sea shore. The hole was very low and close to the ground so I had to lie on my back and do a slight abdominal crunch to face directly the hole with the camera. The view was in the other side of the bay and it looks like the remnant of a Spanish fort, during their control time of Cuba. The image was cropped as to straightening the horizontal lines of the glued wood.

Good concept Isaac, and your 2 images brought sharpness to the entire image. The Castle wall was canted to the right so I put your rendering into PS, entered the letters A and T with the ctrl button depressed and straitened the Castle by dragging my mouse from the lower right corner until the vertical line was established. I found the buildings on the right a distraction. You might consider using Content Aware to fill that area in with a portion of the foreground.   Posted: 11/03/2019 19:28:54

I love it! Really makes me think Havana. I think that the combination is brilliant. To be honest, I don't see any problems with the alignment.   Posted: 11/11/2019 12:35:26
