April 22, 2007 HDR Chiller (shadow)


Green Grass and Shadows HDR-24, originally uploaded by barnp. Click on pic, see it in Flickr.

This search word came up with way more HDR images that I predicted (1,687 pics, and no, I did not look at them all...that's not part of the game). I chose this pic as the day's Chiller, but their were many pics along the same lines (like this or this). I have concluded that many folks must be driven to capture shadows like this for some reason, a fact supported by the photographer's quote on the Flickr page: "This had some nice shadows on the ground." To each, his/her own.

I am finding that my internal reaction to the various Chiller selections runs the gamut from disdain to laughter. For this one, it's somewhere around a yawn.

This is barnp (photographer). This was only a test image, hence the slightly loose reasoning - being the shadows. I would agree that it lacks the finesse that many of the other HDR images on this blog have. But in my defence it was one of the first I had taken and was mainly a test of technique.

If others can learn from perceived mistakes, then so be it.

Bamp - No defense needed, and I am sorry if I offended you. I do not mean to hurt or harm. This is really meant in the funnest of good humor. I can see that such Chillers are not going over to well though, and in the future I will be posting few if any of this type of commentary.
