POTD: Academy Revisited

United States Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel in HDR

I captured this image of the United States Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel several years ago, but it’s one of my favorites. It’s an HDR image that I like to revisit from time to time in order to test new software tools.

In this particular image, I was trying out the new Aurora HDR Pro software from Macphun. This newly announced HDR software isn’t out yet, but you can pre-order it here. This software has some unique features that make it stand out, including glow/lighting effects, very good control over details and textures, noise reduction, and built-in layers (including luminosity masks). Overall, it’s excellent software for those interested in fine-art HDR images.  Look for a full review after November 19th, when Aurora HDR Pro  is officially released!
