    Car Crash HDR

    Hey all, I know it's not really a picture of a car crash, but I was in a car crash and just happened to have my d70 on me and I thought that I'd try and make my first ever thread here at least semi interesting Whilst waiting for the recovery vehicle I noticed the sun setting next too an empty office building. I balanced the camera on a pole and took 3 shots +/-2 steps and came up with the pic below. Might still be a bit ott for non-hdr lovers

    Nice effort ....
    Does the building have a halo around the edges ? Happens if you blend exposures which are too different or if you oversharpen. But then it could just be my screen.

    The halo looks a bit odd but overall it has a good surreal feel to it.

    lol, cheers guys. I appreciate your comments and the reason why I processed it as such was to interprate what I saw in front of me. It was a wierd, surreal building, like something alien. I think I've portrayed that accurately in my photo and I like it

    I like it! Dunno enough to comment further, except to say only thing I'd be tempted to do (if such a thing is possible) would be to reduce the sort of "glow" eminating from the roof of the building which I suppose is some artefact of the HDR-ing?

    HDR = High Dynamic Range

    In truth (I think!) these images are tone-mapped to simulate the way your eyes would adjust to different light intensities while looking around a scene, rather than true HDR as your montior would not be able to display actual HDR (I've seen a prototype using a projector to pump light through a TFT screen to increase the dynamic range to something very large - 100,000:1 could have been something like it)

    it's quite fun to try out though you will find not to everyone's tastes.
