I guess I’ll continue with more of my Alberta landscapes for a while. This photo is one of my earlier HDR attempts. For those who don’t know what that term means, it stands for ‘high dynamic range’. The idea is that the eye and brain can process a lot more information that a camera sensor, which is why sometimes when you take a picture of a beautiful scene and look at it later, it can sometimes be a bit disappointing. This technique helps to capture a bit more of that by blending together 3 or more different exposures of the same image. This brings out much more detail in areas that are too dark or too bright in any one photo so that you get a more balanced image which reminds you more of how it looked to the naked eye. Of course, one can go way overboard with the processing, which is why a lot of people hate it, but I think it’s pretty cool and I like it when it’s done tastefully. I might have over-saturated the colour a bit in this one…
