no pool this beautiful should be empty at a time like this

I think the title says it all!


I've never been much of a swimmer. I mean, I can swim just fine and I'm as bouyant as anyone my age should be, but I don't really like it as a form of exercise. THere is always so much that goes into the perparation bit of the exercise. Also, since I can't liseten to my iPod while I swim, that's kind of a deal-killer. I've heard they have some new water-proof MP3 players, but that just sounds like too much trouble all around.


Anyway, this was a 5-exposure HDR that went from -2 to +2. I'm convinced it's the only way to shoot into the sun and get all the light levels of the details around the pool.

    Beautiful scene. But I have wonder why with a 5-exposure HDR you have zero cloud movement and a rippled pool? Do tell.
