Abenteuer Photography

By Justin R. Dahl - HDR Photography & Beyond

My official first attempt at HDR.  I downloaded a trial version of Photomatix tonight to try my hand at HDR before I purchased the full version.  Here are two versions of tone mapping I did on HDR composites of a night shot outside of my window on Broad Street after the Blizzard of 2010.  I know night scenes are not typically recommended for HDR photography unless there is ample light sources, but I figured all of the street lights in close proximity would work.  He are two versions, one with more shadow and color highlights and one with less highlights and more detail.  I call it Light Crystals.

The Image

I must say, I have always enjoyed photography.  Probably becuase I am not the best drawer or painter.  It is a way to make a painting without ink or paint.  You can express what you would paint on the canvas in the blink of an eye… or more so a snap of the shutter.
