Creative Eye Still Needed With HDR

I've seen some GREAT HDR images recently - images in which many photographic elements come together.

Here is an HDR image, created by Hudson River Photography Workshops participant Bill "Chief" Sneddon, that illustrates both a good eye and cool use of HDR. It's also a good example of creating a sense of depth in a picture – as well as getting everything in the scene in focus and creative cropping.

It also illustrates this: never underestimate the importance of a good subject.

Nice work "Chief."

Explore the Light,
P.S. In addition to group workshops, I teach private workshops that include a trip to this cool location in Kent, NY. For HDR, you'll need Photomatix and Topaz Adjust. Read about 'me at the Plug-in Experience. Get a discount on Photomatix there, too.

Excellent image. I love the color, composition, subject, and sharpness. The deep focus makes me feel like I am really there and allows me to look around like I would were I there. I would never have guessed it was HDR, which is a great accomplishment in my opinion. This image just feels real.
