Follow the Young at Heart

Okay, okay! I know I've posted a lot of stuff here on HDR lately! But here are two new shots: three exposures – 0, +2 and -2 EV. Photomatix with a touch to Topaz Adjust.

I have lived by the dam for 25 years. I never got a mist shot like the one on the right. It's the result of following a text message at the end of the day from a young workshop participant, Jeremy Pollack: "Incredible mist, get to the top of the dam ASAP."

Point of this homily: Follow the advice of young people. Jeremy and I were the only photographers from the workshop shooting - in 34 degree temp in the snow!

By the way: Slow shutter speeds in HDR work great with water, clouds and mist - but not moving leaves and people.

Great tip on the HDR. I talked about you on my blog the other day. You may want to look at it.

Hi Alan K... nice work on your site. I need to go back to Bhutan for HDR :-)
