Default Strobe + HDR

Here's an image that I made by combining strobe with HDR. Sort of a product shot type deal for that LeBron basketball. I used multiple RAW images combined in PhotoMatix.

GREAT!!! Excellent composition, place of the ball.. I would think this is good enough for an advert.

All the best.

I agree with Ned. Great shot, composition, lighting. Nice spot top left for any type. You have all the angles covered.

Gosh JaroDefer you are really, really short aren't you. Or else, that is one huge basketball. Just kidding, of course. I like your concept and result.

i agree. i really like this composition and the result. like dark greys with just a touch of color in the basketball. the sky is a little grainy, but you could easily fix that by running some noise reduction through the sky only.

Thanks for the comments guys. I totally agree with the grain in the sky. It really doesn't look bad when it's printed, but I'll go back over it in Photoshop to smooth out the sky.

That's one of the things about noise - what works for printing may not work for on-screen viewing. I love the picture, by the way.
