An Alien Landscape
This is a multi-exposure blended high dynamic range image taken at Yellowstone National Park last summer. I felt that the use of hdr imaging brought out the magical color of the actual scene better than a standard one exposure image could accomplish.
This was handheld and shot on autoexposure bracketing ... one shot at plus 2.0, one shot at minus 2.0 and one shot correctly exposed. They were all then blended together using Photomatix software.
