    So I had a day off yesterday, my first time having a day off during the week in ages, so I decided to head out with my camera, but unfortunately it was so painfully cold that I only got a few blocks away. I took a couple of bracketed shots of a nearby cemetary, and when I processed them in Photomatix the HDR that it churned out was quite different then I expected it to look: (quick sidenote, the tracks that are right at the foreground, dog? racoon?)

    i like the perspective, the lights. i think the lensflare delivers an unexpected effect to the picture. i dont go so much for the HDR look. it makes the whole scene appeare as wrapped in plastic.
    do you mind posting some not processed shots? it would be interesting to see if the HDR really improves the picture, and if so, what is missing in the unprocessed shots.

    The sunflare is interesting..yes, maybe it is a ghost!!!!

    sometimes when the sky is that whitish blue sky they HDRs just don't come out as well and they get blown out on the edges of the sky near the horizon. I found that sometimes HDRs don't seem to agree with snow....it makes the snow look gray for some reason.

    Definately a unique shot. Like the overall effect and colors of the stones against the background.
    As far as the tracks go-I'd guess a rabbit-since the are in pairs which indicates a hopping mode of travel.

    A Rabbit! Ah that makes sense!

    And yah Jen I havn't had much luck with snow HDR's either, the sky/snow just all blend together to much.

    hobbes - I actually deleted the originals, but I think they are still on my camera, if they are ill post them soon (battery is charging).

    Hobbes - Found an original, so here yah go, as you can see the sun was intense that day so the glare of the snow made shooting tricky.
