The Prismatic Cathedral

The EG Program

At the EG Conference, they give everyone a unique program and a set of specialized playing cards, each adorned with customized art. Their team takes all the presenters and portrays them in some kind of a scene. For example, last year they did “movies”, and this year they did “fine art.” Anyway, you can thumb through their program and see if you can find me! (If you are mega bored…)

One other cool thing about the playing cards is that people often get “special” one-time cards in there that are prizes. Most prizes are very unique and are offered by one of the speakers. The one I traded for ended up being a balloon ride with Jonathan Trappe, one of the other speakers there. Know who he is? Ever hear of that guy that started tying balloons to his office chair until it took off? That’s him! I don’t know where we’ll do our balloon ride yet… I’m trying to talk him into Myanmar.

Daily Photo – The Prismatic Cathedral

In the webinar, I gave people a small set of images for homework. This is the second of the two sets (the first I posted yesterday). I didn’t mean for both to be from Spain, but I guess they are! Anyway, I thought it was kind of fun for people all over the world to be processing my images while I am processing them… kind of strange but cool. I will try to post things on a regular basis as we work on them together.

    Gorgeous, Trey. I’m still trying to get the funds together for the class, I’ve convinced myself I need it… now I just need to convince the bank! ;) Seriously, it sounds like a wonderful experience. Nice feedback comments from yesterdays post, too.

    This is where HDR works best for me. Great tone, colors and details

    TREY!!!!! DOGGG!!!!!
    I can’t tell you how tired I am already. My eyes are killing me from staring at my homework and everyone elses too. I’m truly having a real blast with all your downloaded pix and trying to follow your work flow advice from the Webinar. I know $200 is $200 but I have to say there is no question it’s the best money you can spend if you want your work to jump ahead.
    AND IT’S JUST DAY ONE!!

    Here’s my versions of the church.
    I altered the tones in the walls a lot to take out the amber tones. Just trying to reach for something a little different. Hope you like it.

    Yo, Theodore! Long time no see! ;)

    Great shot of this cathedral.

    Excellent work Trey! It took me 4 hours to download the file to watch the webinar yesterday (couldn’t catch it live) but it was absolutely worth it. Scribbled down so many notes and can’t wait for the next lesson! Tonight I’ll be doing the homework and posting it in the clubhouse. Really enjoying seeing everyone’s different interpretations of your files. Can’t express how much I’m loving the course and as Thelonius says it’s only Day One!

    Wow, nice colors in that photo!

    MIssed the first session of the Webinar, but I’m under the weather right at the moment… Being sick sucks :-(
    Awesome photo though, I really need to get myself into a cathedral at some stage!

    to much……awful

  • Simon Morris

    Gorgeous looking Cathedral – I like the warm tones from the amber lighting, the texture of the stonework, and as for the stained glass windows… stunning!
    You’re right Trey – it’s strange but cool for people to be processing your images whilst you’re also processing them… bizarre!
    Thelonious – nice work… it’s good comparing like-for-like!

    Looking forward to Day 2, since Day 1 was such a great start! Love having the opportunity to post-process your work. I’m convinced now I need a D3X to parner with my D700. Maybe you can sell me yours (together with your any mojo you’ve massaged into it) when u get your RED beast!

  • Peter S

    If you do get to Myanmar then Bagan is definitely the place for a balloon ride, but I’m guessing that you must know that already. I was there in 2002 and drifting slowly and silently over all those temples and stupas at dawn was truely mystical; unfortunately I only had a VERY basic camera with me. As for the catherdral, well I have to say that I might just prefer what Theolonius has done, maybe with a bit less saturation (the carpet certainly looks a little too much!); I’ll have a go at it myself before tonight’s session – really looking forward to it (despite the timing!)

    Wow! Trey…You really went grungy on this one. Awesome photograph though. It is a pleasure to be able to work on your files, especially as one gets to experience the higher quality and less noisy full frame images. Having worked on both pieces of homework yesterday, it might finally be time to upgrade my D300. By the way, your sensor needs cleaning…I noticed quite a few spots when processing the Ibiza Rocks files.

    One word description, SPECTACULAR!!!! Get well soon, Eden :-( Thanks for sharing, Trey, great job! Have a great Tuesday. :-)

    Cool shot Trey – so bright and vibrant! Have fun at the webinar tonight!

    Hi Trey,

    Slightly off topic but I know how much you like Iceland so check out the work of this guy:

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/icelandaurora/

    Not a single instance of Tonemapping either! ;-)

    He basically controls long exposures by hilding a towel in front of his lens and basically lifts it really slowly, in essence recreating the effect of an ND filter.

    I just know you will like his work!

    Awesome!

    Hilarious look! :) You should wear those clothes during Photowalks, hehe. :)

  • casusan

    You know-and I know this sounds wierd – but ever since the webinar started your site seems to load slower?? Just a comment from the peanut gallery!

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpaxonreyes/ J. Paxon Reyes

    Matthew Halstead:

    It may not be HDR, but are you sure it isn’t tonemapped or at least given a bit of the ol’ processing? Those are brilliant pictures and I ache to try that technique now. Thanks for sharing.

  • http://timetotakepictures.blogspot.com Keith Moyer

    Great picture! It seems the site has been loading slowly for the last week or so…I thought it was just me.

    Dig the Teddy Roosevelt treatment they gave you, looks good…and is pretty appropriate – world travelers that you both are/were!

    OMG amazing photo. Honestly one of the most incredible I have seen in a long, long time.

    But the post font size on this site makes my eyeballs go rather squirrely :(

    Lovely Trey, thanks for sharing. The light inside this old buildings makes such wonderful tones and shadows.

    Amazing picture, Trey. I’m going to Barcelona next week and want to know if I can use my tripod into the Catedral de Barcelona. Can’t find any information online!
