February 7, 2008 HDR Thriller (landscape)

Grand Teton, uploaded into Flickr by James Neeley. Click on pic to see it in Flickr.

There is a world of difference looking at the above shot and the LARGE ON BLACK VERSION. Definitely an entrancing gawker in large. And here's another related shot, also by James Neeley, that really shows HDR at work...just look at the incredible detail in the shadow area on the left side...I find it totally amazing that there is such detailed information stored in a dark (virtually unexposed) portion of a photo that only comes out when the HDR software teases it out.

The search word today was inspired by a pretty cool photo blog I saw...French Landscapes.

First, thank you for the link to my blog.
Congrats for your blog.
Usually, i'm not a great HDR fan because of the unnatural look it often gives to the images but the photos you features here will make me change my mind. They are all beautiful and some landscapes have an awesome look.

Thanks, Patrick.
I do know what you mean about poorly done or overcooked HDR shots. I agree that they are mind numbing to look at. Part of my original purpose on this blog to to separate the good from the bad. I used to post both a good and a bad one everyday, but found the bad ones tiresome. I might still do it on occasion if I see somthing that really bothers me.
