Yet another great composition!

This one kept messing with my brain. It's still telling me this is a 3D render. There's something about the light that looks like it was produced by a radiosity algorithm (it has to do with surfaces that reflect light diffusely in 3D programs, and that's all I know). Wonderful capture!

so I've wondered what's with the vending machines? I have seen many in photos and wondered if they were toys or candy or what?

i still don't get how you do it. i've tried and can't get it so well-graded as this. do you use a plugin or something?
Reply
:iconpajunen:
Pajunen Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
I use Dynamic Photo HDR software first and then Paint Shop Pro. I don't have plugins.

Is it enough that you shoot it as a RAW file? Those have very nice dynamic range.

Pajunen Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
I don't use much RAW format, but yes, it's possible to achieve a HDR kind of effect without a HDR software by e.g. using layers and adjusting the contrast, lightness and curves.
