I have been eargly awaiting the release of Aurora HDR 2018 which has been released in the last few weeks. To do a demo, I used a landscape photo I took at the il Tartufo restaurant near Arrowtown, NZ during a work trip.

The image was duplicated and edited in Aurora HDR 2018 where I picked the “Landscape Enhanced Preset” but made no other changes. Left is old image, right is Aurora HDR.

I have always been interested in portrait photography, but never game enough to really ask someone to model for me, how do you think I went with some High-Key self portraits.
On a recent work trip I visited Queenstown for three days for a conference, part of the trip related to work but thankfully there was a bit of time to do some sightseeing and of course (as I always do) capture some photos.
