Back to the Castle


HDR image of the Stove at Gillette Castle Kitchen

HDR image of the Stove at Gillette Castle Kitchen – 7 exposures tone mapped using Nik’s HDR Efex Pro & Nik Color Efex filter used in pp – I decided to processed the image with a higher contrast to give it more of an old ethereal look ©2011Susan Candelario

I photographed this image  yesterday during The Roamin’ with Roman Photo HDR workshop. We could not have asked for a better group of participants. They where all amazing, friendly & a joy to have around. I have already seen some of their processed images and I was impressed.

My husband Anthony,  Nick Palmieri , Roman and myself made the trip in one car.  I have learned from experience that when you are Roamin’ with Roman, there is something of an extra added bonus almost every  time that  was not in the agenda. He did not disappoint us. On the way to & from the castle he made some detours and got us some pretty cool shooting subjects. As soon as I processed the images I will be posting many more from Gillette Castle and from our surprise shoots.

The Castle is truly an amazing place to photograph and it specially lends itself for some awesome HDR images.
