So many choices...

I had the opportunity to attend an HDR Workshop in Tampa taught by Scott Bourne and Trey Ratcliffe last weekend. Since I've never had even a hint of success with HDR shots, and my post-processing skills are extremely limited I was amazed how much I learned in one all-day session.

 

Along with the knowledge transfer, the class also included a copy of Trey's book 'A World in HDR'. In the extremely limited time available on my calendar right now I'm slowly working my way through it and trying to choose shots from the library to experiment with. Im trying to pick various techniques and methods and since I've not shot much with HDR in mind this one is based on a single image instead of a bracketed set.

 

I still have a long way to go to get the level of so many others here but you have to start somewhere I guess. This one is a little more stylized that I typically prefer in HDR shots. I'll be in Manhattan for a week starting the middle of next week and bringing all the gear with me. I'm looking forward to really leveraging what I learned to see if I can create some unique shots of the architecture of the city.
