Sun sets on Daisies…

Today we attended a trail running event (He-who-thinks-he’s-boss participated & unsporty ol’ me decided to have a go at a few runners with my trusty camera!!)… I really am NOT good in capturing people – – – let alone moving people!! But I guess it’s just something that I have to practice and figure out!! Any handy tips??

Any way, so I decided to post my next attempt at HDR (again handheld… oops!)!! It was taken from three shots (-2,0,+2) and the merging of the three (in CS5) created this weird rainbow type effect where the sun is!!!

I am quite chuffed with it… now, if only I can make the effort and tag along a tripod!!! 😉 **

My first HDR attempts!!!

Ok, so I’ve been seeing HDR everywhere (& if I may add – – – LOVING the results!!!)… Not knowing what HDR is, I started doing a bit of research about it… I think I’ve got the basic idea, so while I was walking with my dogs (obviously camera in hand!!!), I decided to see if I can shoot anything that I can experiment with!!!

Ok, so these ARE NOT GOOD… but I am quite excited about HDR because:

1. If I were to use a tripod (instead of doing 3 handheld shots… I know I know, but I wasn’t planning this) these would already be better…

2. I L.O.V.E the clouds!!! 😀

3. This is a new skill that I can learn, practice & develop!!! 😀

Without further ado, I present my three (handshot) HDR’s:

Subject 1

Subject 2

Subject 3 (My favourite!!!)

As far as the watermark goes… Thank you so much for all the feedback!!! I’m going to design one that is true to what/who I am – – – so hopefully I’ll replace my boring initials with a proper watermark sooner rather than later!!! 😀 **
