Here I took a series of three pictures to be used for and HDR photo. By themselves none of them are anything to write home about, two of them are actually quite terrible.
Just as I stated before I took these three photos, worked a little Photoshop HDR magic and came up with this.
Before you say anything I know that this photo is not realistic; its not meant to be. It always seems that a photo never really captures the moment. With some judicious application of my meager editing skills I feel that the emotion that I felt looking over this landscape comes through better than if I just used the last photo of the previous series. Some people I talk to think that using Photoshop is cheating; that you can take a bad photo and make it great. There is a grain of truth in that, but you still can't get around that fact that a poorly composed picture will always look bad.
In the comments below let me know what you think of this picture, good or bad.
Til next time,
