Very cool..light is awesome. Where was this? Is that you? #1191840

Ken Falls October 13, 2009

Yes, it is me. I placed my camera on the tripod and had it fire off five shots of me at verious exposures so I could do this in HDR. I couldn't move for a long time because the last two were at about 10 and 15 seconds each. I took this at the Philadelphia Eastern State Prison. Thanks for commenting on this picture and the Bamberg picture. #8034486

I really want to learn HDR. This image is timeless. The light really is amazing.. #8034591

Ken Falls October 13, 2009

HDR isn't so tough. Just put your camera on the bracketing feature and shoot of three images of 1 stop each. If you have Photoshop, it will do HDR. Or you can try Photomatix as I feel that is the best program. HDR is tough in one aspect: I either love the image or I hate it. No middle ground on it. So have fun. #8034895
