With my laptop lost on the first day of a one month overseas holiday, I won’t be able to post the HDR images I had hoped to. Still, the iPad should let me upload some interesting images.
This image is one of the overexposed images I shot of the Eiffel Tower, but I still this it looks pretty cool, despite it’s obvious excessive brightness.
I’ve tried doing High Dynamic Range photography years ago, putting them together in PhotoShop – but it was tedious and frustrating. Today I tried Photomatix, which makes life easier. P
Using HDR has allowed me to retain detail in the bright areas and the foreground dinghy.
Pretty happy with my first experiment.

From, but not of a balloon today: This image shows the flagpole atop Parliament House, canberra, with the old ‘temporary’ Parliament House in the background. the symetry of this image make it work for me.

This small crab was hiding in a cave above the ocean waterline, well protected from predators. Surprisingly, the combination of his dark colouring and the white rocks meant the correct exposure was just what the camera’s meter indicated.

Being able to compose this image so the background was another race bike – a clone of the subject – I think adds to the image. The sun had just disappeared behind a thin cloud and I quickly focussed on the first bike and captured the image. Seconds later the opportunity was gone as the sun came out, bring back harsh shadows.
