Thank's Walter!

Glad that your emotions are on par with mine. That's what it's all about when sharing photos.

Not much to it, really - just looking and shooting more with my heart really, instead of with what's left of my Altzheimer-eaten brain.

When I am in one of these shooting-series, I work more or less sub-counciouse, driven by emotions and another, unknown and nameless 'level' within me (I know it sounds pretentiouse, but thats how it is). Nothing else but the viewfinder (articuated LCD really) and the controls on my G1 exist - i tend to forget time and physical well-being, when shooting. Usually it is first when I pack up and go home, that I realize how cold it has been...

Thank you for your kind words, jelpee!
:-)

Really beautiful shots you have there.



Well Jeff, you have something to look forward to. It's a powerful and addictive combination!

Just be careful when waving that camera around and looking through the viewfinder at the same time - it's like a roller-coster, it will make your head spin dizzy and get sea-sick!


Thanks for your comment, which - to my surprise - contained more that one syllable...

I'll get you a Tokina, if I can keep your wifes D90.....

Better yet, is to ask your wife for a Tokina for your birthday, Simon. Or buy one for her and then ask to borrow it! That way, everybody is happy.

Err, I'll buy you a Tokina in exchange for Simples wife. (No need to ask Simple about this).

# 3 - This picture her is one I love the most, as it really unleashes the power of the mighty Tokina, as well as the power of HDR, which brings out the contrasty details in the icy edge along the curved coastline.


# 4 - In this shot I wanted to bring out the texture of the snow and ice and also some of the texture of the rocks....

# 5 -This last one her is more or less just a "study of texture", both in the rocks and the snow - and of course - The Light!

As I said initially, I plead "temporarely insainty" because I was smitten by the secret powers of the Tokina and - to some extend - HDR's lovely product of Tone-Mapping.....

It's been such a joy to observe them Walter! But your series prove more than just pleasure; a good training for the eye to help the ones to have their eyes REALLY 'see' in their next outing. You may as well have entitled your post 'A triumph of HDR'

You left out this quote from Walter:

"CC are of course welcome - but I would rather not have a new debate of HDR or not HDR, or if HDR was really needed. I just wanted to enjoy myself here.."
May I suggest we stick to Walters guidelines?

Fantastic photos but the title "A tribute to HDR" is a tad provocative.

This is also a tad provocative. I totally disagree and if you post the central RAW I'll show you how.

Walter didn't say that in this thread. That's, err, from the collected Walter Quotes ($9.99 at Barnes and Noble). As for the title, that's ok - It's an expression of exuberance...
