Hey, how about a photography post!

I did want to work in photography to this blog more than I have, and while it has happened to a degree when talking about food or certain infrastructure, my photography, or the photography of others, has not come up too often.

So it was with great excitment that I saw this post over at Treehugger on HDR (high dynamic range) photography
HDR from Wikipedia
...high dynamic range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allow a greater dynamic range of luminances between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods. This wider dynamic range allows HDR images to more accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes, ranging from direct sunlight to faint starlight
I had heard about HDR before, and I am sure I saw some examples, but I had mostly forgotten what it truly looked like and the amazing beauty of it.

The pictures in this slideshow are of natural settings and not man made, unlike the photography that graces the start of this post. It is almost another world like in its quality and colors, I wish I had the equipment and the knowledge to do something like this!

So please follow the link over to the slideshow at on HDR photography and be amazed!

Note, each image has a an artist on flickr that you can link to and see more of their work, look in the lower right for the link. I highly encourage this, as their work is gorgeous!
