The Bombing of Dresden

Newer Older

If you want to see how I made this (and how you can too!), visit my HDR Tutorial. I hope it gives you some new tricks!

This is one of the most famous churches in Dresden that was bombed to bits in WWII. When it was rebuilt just recently, they reused some of the old burned black bricks in the construction. If you look close, you can still see them in there on occasion.

This comes from my photo tutorial at stuckincustoms.com/2006/06/06/548/

    Again Values! Values! I have no problem with your work or the method or the style you have chosen to depict a scene the way want or feel it is right; whether you want to share your Zen moment or convey the still-rebel-inner-child in you who sees everything in a naive (art form), "Fantastical" form and shape...or you had a vivid dream that woke you up shaking, leaving you in chasms of deep-chocking-emotions and you decided to share feelings with your friends/fans or your family by drawing, photographing, painting or telling...You'll find that it's impossible make them feel what you felt. Because, it was your dream! Your feelings that were mapped and turned into some kind of heavenly emotions by your brain...the Director behind the unearthly special effects that turns the ordinary to extraordinary, the sad feeling to a blissful one. We all experienced that moment when someone close or far to us came up to us, feeling all-shook up with a heart piercing emotion they felt in their 5-10 minutes, but what felt like eternity dream, and excitedly told us, expecting us to feel what they felt. Did we? No. Why? Because, dreams, unlike Freudian theory, are belong to the individual. Can only be felt by the individual...Shortly, you can't make me feel the same way you felt in your dream just like I can't make you feel mine...Why did I digress? Am I off the point? Maybe...or not!
    Here it is: Please, do not strain my vision, blinding me with blurry details and ghostly figures. Do you strain your eyes when admiring Monet, Millet, and Pissarro? Your favorite dreamers and Impressionists…think about your Aunt Dolores’ poor vision, for Ratcliff F****’s sake! And, please, do other hobbyist, Pros or beginners by labeling your work with Photo-Realistic HDR, (if you have one) Hyper-Realistic HDR and Surreal-my-Interpretation HDR… That would help other fellow photographers understand you and, most importantly, to HDRI. Be true to your Art…by eliminating confusion. And you don’t have to cut your ear off or live a lonely secluded life in Barbizon!

    Cheers!
