Quick tip on anti-ghosting with Aurora HDR 2019

Here's a quick edit of one of my favorite photos of Shanghai where I show how to get rid of the scary ghost ships! If you haven't got Aurora HDR 2019 yet, you can grab it from my store, it's marked down to its lowest price of the year. I love this latest version. It's truly the best HDR editing software in the world.

I keep a completely FREE HDR Tutorial on my website. It is a living document that continues to evolve over the years. It goes over everything you need to get started and is a great introduction to the basics of HDR photography and post processing.


Here's some photos from StuckInCustoms.com

A Remastering Of The Hagia Sofia
I was working on a large format book, and this photo will probably go inside. When I started looking at my previous edit, I saw all sorts of mistakes. I thought, hey, those will be easy to fix. They weren’t. I probably spent a good four hours on the clean-up of this bad boy.

Wandering In Kyoto
I don’t think I would ever get tired when wandering around streets in Japan. I can’t quite figure out my fascination with it. I’ve really tried to analyze why it is so appealing. I find them all to be organically pleasing on an aesthetic level for one. Also, I like seeing all the little restaurants and funky sake bars, knowing I could just walk into any one of them, any time, sit down and have a rest while putting amazing stuff into my mouth.

Storm Over Utah
I was only here for one day, but I had great luck with the weather! Well, I did for a while, because right after sunset all those clouds dumped endless gallons of water on me while I was just finishing my photos. It was totally crazy, actually! There was lightning and thunder and I felt like I was in the middle of a Michael Bay movie. I usually don’t get scared by thunderstorms, but this one had me shaking while I was running through the forest with my tripod trying to get back to the safety of the car!

Good Job Pixel 2!
I took this quick panorama about a week before I got my Google Pixel 3. This spot is about a 15-minute walk from my home and it’s one of my favorite destinations. This is on a giant chunk of land I’d love to buy someday. There are no houses or anything on it, and I think the view is outstanding. I’ve actually never seen another human on the property. So, it’s kind of like I have the ability to hang out here any time even though I don’t own it. People here New Zealand are pretty lax about this kind of thing.

Shanghai Skyline
Here’s a shot I took out of my hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton there in Shanghai. It was the end of our Asia tour and I was feeling exceptionally lazy, so sometimes I would just relax in my room, read books, and then lazily walk over to the window and take some photos. I’m not used to being lazy, and it made me feel rather lame, actually. I’m generally much more stimulated when I’m running around doing ten different things. I mean, I can still be quiet and meditate for a while, but, when that is done, I’m ready for extreme action!
