Groovik's Cube, Sunrise, Burning Man 2009
Groovik's Cube at Sunrise, Burning Man 2009: A totally functional Rubik's Cube the size of a house, controlled by three workstations. DesignOra selected this as part of their "Best HDR Photographs of 2009" and then Digg got a hold of it. I'm glad y'all like this photo. :) That's why I take 'em. The cool thing about this one is that the lights inside the cube were still on, even though it was daytime. Using HDR techniques I was able to coax those colors out. This photo is *not* airbrushed -- I didn't add anything that wasn't already in the source files. For example, in the non-hdr photos the squares on the cube are solid white.
