Bob Ross Memento by duncan-blues Bob Ross Memento by duncan-blues
A picture taken during my late-summer vacation to Sweden this year.

The outcome reminded me of some paintings by Bob Ross
"...and a happy little boat lives over there"



Technical:

The picture is an HDR photography, assembled from four individually exposed pictures of the same scene, taken with my Konica Monolta DiMAGE A2 on a tripod.
The images were first developed from RAW using Adobe Camera RAW and Photoshop Elements 5, then denoised using "NeatImage Pro+" to reduce the grainyness in the darker parts of the picture, then fed to Photomatix 2.5.4 as 16 bit TIFF files, turned into an HDR file and then tonemapped and saved again as 16 bit TIFF file.
Back in Elements 5, the resulting picture was cleaned up a second time, brightness- and tone-adjusted, touched up and finally saved as 8 bit JPEG file.

Really beautiful. Makes me want to go north and live in the wilderness, like a hermit!
Whereabouts in Sweden was this? I'm a swede, so I'm just curious where you found this cozy spot =P
