The Oil Spill

This oil actually bubbles up from under the river... not really an oil spill at all.

    So where your first thoughts "that's a terrible accident" or were they "Holy Smoke, that would make a great HDR!"

    You might be forgiven if you were torn - it did make a great HDR!

    LOL, finnigh!

    It does make a great HDR...I'd probably have been thinking the same. Or alternatively, just "that would make an awesome HDR!".

    Then when I was home later looking at it it would dawn on me that I completely ignored the fact of the accident itself.

    Obsessed? Me? Nahhhh.

    You are so spot on drumsnwhistles, I would probably have done the same. Trey it's a pity you didn't get much sunlight on that shot, it would have had some great colours in the oil... you see there I go... forgetting the accident :-)

    Haha you guys are funny...

    I did see the oil spill and thought, "great disaster or great HDR?" I chose the latter.

    Actually I got a ton of shots of just the oil on the water and the sun was very good, but it just didn't come out very compelling. I think that oil on water does not make the best HDR subject because all the colors are already bright and fully saturated.

    Dear photographer,

    Le COMPA is a french museum located in Chartres, not far from Paris (France).
    On the February 19th, this museum will show its new exhibition dealing with Water and Sustainable development. In this purpose, we have decided to collect as many pictures as we can, to show the various aspects of our relation to water. Nevertheless, in order to be sure to obtain good quality pictures, we would like to use some of those which are displayed on the Flickr website. Some of those we have noticed are yours.

    The use of the mentioned pictures will obviously comply with the Creative Commons regulation. Nevertheless, we would like to obtain your agreement before showing these images. By the way, and if you want so, we would like to add the correct name or pseudonym of the photographer above all the pictures and a short title as well.
    Finally, and in order for us to have correct printing of your photo, the best way would be to work with a 300 dpi resolution with a minimal size of 3600 x 2400 pixels. Could you please send us the corresponding file?

    We’re longing for your answer and would be please to answer any remaining question about this project :

    Sincerely yours

    Nicolas Franchot
    le Compa, Conservatoire de l'agriculture
    Chartres / France
