Thursday Arch Series

.
Another HDR image of the Arch in black and white. This isn't the way the HDR manuals tell you to do it. They tell you to always use a tripod. I do most of mine handheld. I really like the ghosting effect of something moving through the picture (my best example, I think, is this one). They must be out there somewhere, but I haven't seen any other HDRs in B&W. You can have all sorts of fun manipulating the tones in Photoshop. This almost looks like an infrared image.

WHAT I'D BE HAPPY NEVER TO HEAR OF AGAIN:
1. AIG. 2. Bernard Madoff. 3. My 401(k) rate of return.


TOMORROW:
I love a parade.


There is a new Arch photo today on GATEWAY.

This is just plain cool! It's eerie but I like it. I wish I understood HDR but I don't and I guess it doesn't really matter. You do and we can all enjoy your expertise!

PS I like the way the Arch just shoots off the top of the photograph.

I saw another B&W HDR image a couple weeks ago and completely fell in love with the look. Very cool image!

This is just excellent. The blur really makes it to be sure.

My IRA tanked several years ago so I cashed it out and put the money into something more trustworthy...

Excellent...toss the manual. You don't need it!
