The lock

This image was made from a collection of three shots, each taken one stop apart.

The HDR effect is an interesting one but I can't get over how fake the final images can seem. More akin to illustrations that photographs.

I didn't know if I was going to have time to post anything tonight. Since my Nik got me to join facebook I have been catching up with a lot of old friends. What I wasn't ready for was when you are communicating with so many people it really kills any free time you have. I must say though it is so great to see all the old faces including a best friend from school that lives in the same city as me. Not only that but his wife is an award-winning wedding photographer. How coincidental is that?
