More from Grant Park

posted by tucker

I spent lots of time today processing more from yesterday’s shoot at Grant Park… and I’m only about halfway through! It takes me about 20-30 minutes per picture, from the initial HDR process in Photomatix to the final edits and touch-up in Photoshop, so when there are tons of images, like this, it can extend on and on… but it’s fun, and it will give me something to do on the plane to Maine tomorrow. I’m really, really pleased with how these are coming out. One thing I have noticed is that there is a huge difference between the color profiles in Photoshop on my PC and Mac, and the color on my Samsung display is way different (worse) than the LED display in my Macbook Pro. I have been doing most of my edits on my PC these days because it is quite fast, but the images, when posted, do not look as good on the site as they do in Photoshop. Ah well, I can always reprocess them later. Or I could waste time doing tons of calibration and creating custom color profiles but… I am lazy ๐Ÿ™‚

The small, ugly playground that the city wisely decided to put on the canon mounds. Notice the skyline peaking through the trees!

A pretty pond and fountain, marred by the sewer drain... those clouds are the storm that hit moments later.
