I am starting to experiment with High Dynamic Range Imaging. (HDR) is a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range of exposures (the range of values between light and dark areas) than normal digital imaging techniques allow. The intention of HDRI is to accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to shadows.
This is my first experiment with it (see the picture on the left, watermarked with "Photomatix". I still have a lot of learning to do... I hope to do more with it this summer at our various vacation venues.
The other 2 pics are from an arrangement Cathy did from her garden. Her arrangement abilities are awesome as usual.
