Your photographs are incredible.

Amazing – love the rich colors and exciting subject!
Comment by Gracie — August 30, 2008 @ 2:03 pm
Very nicely composed image; nearly feels like a drawing.

Sandy- thanks so much for the generous review.
Gracie- I’m fascinated with trying to get those rich, but realistic colors.
Sue- the hdr stuff tends to make images look somewhat like illustrations, which I obviously enjoy. “Under The Bridge” image, when opened up at full size, is amazingly like an illustration to my eye.
The interesting thing about this hdr thing is that, unlike traditional photography where you see a scene and you can automatically know how it will reproduce or how to capture it the way you want to capture it, I’ve yet to be able to preconceive what a scene will look like as an hdr. That all may be due to the fact that I have been shooting “normal” photos for many years, but have only recently been shooting hdrs.
The post production of shot images in hdr software is really an exciting experience. I highly recommend dipping your toe into hdr.

All of ur shots are mindblowing! Amazing work!
Comment by chaitanya1988 — September 12, 2008 @ 11:02 am
Very nice shot! How can you get these colors? Really nice.
Comment by Rafael Perrone — September 13, 2008 @ 1:55 am
Nice shot.. Either you did some serious cloning or it was was unusually empty that day. Either way, great job, it has that surreal look with out going over the edge like some bad HDRs you see out there.

Looks like a fairytale again!
OT don’t push me 😉

Excellent hdr. I in perticular like the cartoonish post production work. Cool!
Comment by Kristian Rasmussen — September 15, 2008 @ 2:45 am
Thank you for the compliments. Your work with HDR is amazing in this sample! Keep it up!
Comment by Marc Edwards Photography — September 16, 2008 @ 5:12 pm
being great fans of HDR this image is superb!
Outstanding colors and sharpness – the darkness is complete and works well with the composition.

I love an amusement park shot any day, but Coney Island in HDR is really special. Never been there but still intrigued by the history and romance of the famed park. Your HDR rendering is exquisite here. Love it!
Thanks for the visit to my blog too…

Thanks….good to hear from you.
Comment by studiophototrope — September 23, 2008 @ 10:04 pm
Fabulous shot – the sense of atmosphere here is just fantastic; I can almost hear the jingling sounds and taste the candy floss.
Comment by Ishmael — September 24, 2008 @ 3:29 am
Thanks for the comment on my blog. It prompted me to visit your blog. I love, love, love this amusement park image. Beautiful!
Comment by Cindy Dyer — September 24, 2008 @ 6:43 pm
Thanks so much for commenting on my photoblog. I’ve been taking pictures for a while as an amateur, but I’ve just gotten a new camera and am really trying to learn all I can.
I love this picture. This is Coney Island, correct? I was there a few summers ago.
You said this is a 7 exposure picture.. I’ve read about this in some of my magazines.. You use photoshop to layer them? Can you point me in any direction where I might learn more about this?
Thanks so much – your site is very inspiring. I’m adding you to my blogroll.

Now this is a image that certainly will grab the viewer’s attention, holding them within the frame and allowing them to study it further.
Extremely cool stuff!!

Comment by svealien — October 5, 2008 @ 3:21 pm
That’s a fantastic photo! A love the colors and the movement of the wheel on the background. Nice work!
Comment by Gabriel Robledo — October 5, 2008 @ 10:08 pm
Beautiful. Colors are great. The photo is entertaining as well as showing entertainment. It makes me think of childhood wonders and seeing the magic as I did as a child. The colors are amazing. Like looking at a Christmas tree of lights on Christmas morning

[…] Faux HDR After seeing Louis Trocciola’s Wonder wheel HDR photo I am now on that journey until I can figure out how to do something that looks as good as his. Click here to see his Wonder Wheel HDR photo […]

Hi Louis ! Very good HDR indeed,the whole atmosphere with the light and colors are what makes this one pop. Fantastic and magic..
Comment by JM@somedaysomewhere. — October 8, 2008 @ 4:53 pm
Love the cartoon-ish feel to this. I haven’t tried a night-time HDR before. I think I might have to.
Comment by Heath — October 9, 2008 @ 10:59 pm
I’m not quite sure if I should like or dislike HDR… somehow HDR always looks like computer generated (*lol* indeed it IS computer generated) graphics. I can’t find anything natural in this technic.
Comment by EyesWideOpened — October 13, 2008 @ 9:01 am
Thanks for checking out my blog. I really like HDR shots and you have some excellent captures. Great stuff, nice blog.

What a wonderful effect. To me it looks like a relief sculpture, as if I could reach out and touch the objects and find them raised.
Comment by jo — October 15, 2008 @ 7:27 pm
Wow, just stumbled upon your site for the first time! What a terrific HDR image!
Comment by Al — October 16, 2008 @ 4:50 pm
really good one i love the blurred effect on the wheel… the lights in the right are the only thing that tear the eye away in a not so good way..
Comment by Timothy — October 16, 2008 @ 5:48 pm
This is an amazing image made magical by your HDR work. Fantastic work!! Good thing you captured the area in case it’s gone for good next summer..
