March 6, 2007 HDR Thriller (soul)

The walk home, originally uploaded by LynchburgVirginia. Click on pic, see it in Flickr.

My take on the pic above: Bravo...I think this is an extraordinary shot and a fantastic use of HDR technique. It really draws (more like yanks) you into another world. Many things come to mind and some are a bit TIm Burtonesque, but it has hope in it too. If you look on LynchburgVirginia's Flickr site, you can also see this pic in sepia.

Ground Rules on finding pictures to review...

This being the first post, there are some ground rules I use to find a set of photos from which I choose: Pick a word for no particular reason, then search on Flickr or Pbase with both "insert word here" and "HDR". Today the word is "Soul"...generated just now because I have been listening to Jackson Browne’s Solo Acoustic CD on which he tells the story about getting an audience request for playing Peaceful Easy Feeling while on stage one nite (here's a link to it...http://rhaplinks.real.com/rhaplink?rhapid=3096143&type=playlist&title=Playlist&from=bestbuy). Being an Eagles tune, Peaceful Easy Feeling is obviously not Browne's song(!), although he did write Take it Easy for the Eagles. Nonetheless, he decides "what the hell" and gives it a shot (who would ever do that?), but, as he recounts on the CD, he got a huge collective groan from the audience when messed up the line that said, ”…what a woman can do to your soul”. He sang instead,”...what a woman can do to a man.” So that's a long-winded way to relate how I picked "soul" as the search word, and the semblance of a moral to the story: that it’s a mistake to think that women do things to men, they really do things to men's souls. ENOUGH. Enjoy the pictures.
