Jackson Pollack In New York

    Newer Older

    (I highly recommend viewing this image at a large size by clicking the "All Sizes" link above - if you have time to download a Meg of information then you can see the image in its full confusing glory.)

    I have enjoyed learning HDR technology and decided to apply it in cases where it should not work.

    This is a scene where handbags were being sold on a street corner In New York City for $5. There was a large group of women crowding around the table, examining the merchandise, and holding my camera well above my head, I walked around the crowd taking pictures.

    There is no way that a program can combine images that are so dramatically different, but that did not stop me from telling the software to do exactly that. I tried this experiment with two, three, four, and five images, each one offering their own complexity. This particular image is a combination of three images.

      MJ - Thanks for the kind words. With four websites, two podcasts, and college tuition for my two children, my available funds are not what I wish they were. (grin)
