The Skies of Sydney and Photomatix Presets

Photomatix Presets

Do you have (my!) Trey’s Photomatix Presets? I still use Photomatix all the time, as many of you noticed from my recent tutorial video. I think my presets are much more interesting than the ones that come with Photomatix, but you can be the judge! If you don’t agree, you can have all your money back… no problemo!

Here’s a screenshot for ya!

Daily Photo – The Skies of Sydney

Sydney? Check. Sunset? Check. Easy photo? Check!

Man, this was such a lay up… I can’t claim much credit for it. I just kinda walked up and it was like this. Good sunset shots are not always easy, but this one was… I admit it! 🙂 Now, it was made a bit easier with post-processing through Photomatix, but I kind of take that for granted now.

    Oh so YOU”RE the guy Scott Kelby was talking about when he said there probably IS a photographer out there that can just walk up, click, and have an amazing shot while the rest of us have to work the scene… LOL
    Cool shot Trey. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

  • Nice! These silhouettes are always awesome.

    How did you get the sun to set on the wrong side of the Opera House? Most days it RISES on that side 🙂

    Trey crosses so many time zones it was afternoon as far as his body was concerned. Poor guy, all the terrible places he has to go to…
