Crack

Alright, I'm really pleased with how this one turned out. It's a hand-held 3 exposure HDR that I guess I got the breathing down pat for. Except for a crop, I've uploaded the original size, because I was amazed at how crystal the focus ended up.

    It really did turn out well Hugh! I find it interesting to try the bracketing feature and then see how much my frames shift between shots. Practice makes perfect and you appear to have it mastered.

    Thanks Alison!I think it's all in the breathing....either that or I've got to lug the tripod everywhere!

    Very well done! As far as I'm aware, VR will actually move things around when bracketing, so turning it off might be a good idea for this kind of work.

    Wow. It amazes me you can do HDR hand-held. You must be a very calm individual... I'm sorry you have never enjoyed a cuppa coffee ;). This is incredible work. You are right, the focus is crystal clear. Just... wow!
  • Dan Warkentin 4y

    Very nicely done!

    Thanks Chris. I'll keep that in mind, but what I've been doing is pressing the AF-Lock button once I get it in focus. I'll definitely be experiment with the VR though. ; )

    Ha, ha! If you only knew that I managed 5 Tim Horton's for a number of years....I've easily drank a bathtub full of coffee, and more over the years. ...and thank you for the compliment. It's always appreciated. ;-)

    Awesome details !! Excellent shot !! I do most of mine hand held too since I dislike carrying a tripod on my walks :-)

    Geez Hugh, I hope that crack is in the windshield and not your lens! Ha-ha-ha, I didn't laugh out loud so I had to go with the alternative, or maybe we could use ILTM (I laughed to myself -- or ILTMM or ILTMH - mildly or hysterically). HDR has changed photography forever. HDR in a primitive form was first done in 1850 by Gustave Le Gray and then in the 1930's and 40's it was developed even more by Charles Wyckoff. Google wikpedia for the whole story. The original purpose of this long winded comment was to compliment you on your photo, nice one!

    I use the AF-Lock button most of the time, it's very handy!!
  • Darren Kirby 4y

    This is pretty amazing dude, considering I watched you crop a large part of this picture out.

    Thanks Alistair. I have a few other shots of this one. I think it's a Moke, but I need to do a little more research.

    Hand held can be a bit of a pain when you're trying to bracket three, or more exposures into one.

    Thanks John. I won't give you a long winded reply, but I will be doing some Googling on those names you've mentioned. *smile*
