Perfect Timing
Description

As the music played and the water danced to the rhythms this visitor darts through the water streams with perfect timing to avoid a cold bath. As photographer, I also found this moment of perfect timing as the sun was setting behind the buildings, I positioned myself in the shadow to capture the backlighting.

A few inspiring images taken at Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park. I waited for a clear crisp day to get the light for these images. After a cold front blows through Atlanta in the winter, all the haze and smog is gone which leaves the sky blue. These images were shot with a circular polarizing filter to enhance the blue sky and reduce glare. The images are processed as High Dynamic Range (HDR) photos with three exposures. Several passes on the image were made after toning to increase contrast and saturation in addition to high dynamic range. These images have a huge color gamut and high level of detail at a natural size of 19″ along the long edge.

This collection follows in the spirit of my South Beach collection of HDR photography inspired by the street cafe paintings of Vincent van Gogh.

My post processing for web reduces the image resolution and color gamut. Call me if you’re interested in seeing or owning the full size images. Click the [i] for more information on each photo displayed.
