Last weekend was a longer weekend for me, I had some time off from work as compensation for the many weekends I spent working in the recent past.
My wife and I made a trip to Charleston (South Carolina) for some kayaking and just plain enjoying life in a new place. As things go – it’s all fun and games until She sees an opportunity to go shopping, which leaves me in turn with some extra time to take pictures.
One day I found myself with some spare time in front of this water fountain, and created an impromptu assignment for myself: HDR is the big rage, and people either love or hate it. Especially the kind of over-processed HDR images that have an unrealistic grunge look to them.
Now, I couldn’t care less about this discussion – if you like those kind of pictures you like them, if you don’t then you don’t. It’s up to you. At least that’s my take.
I still wanted to see if I can create such an HDR image, so here it is:
For full disclosure: I used the trial version of Photomatix Pro to create this image, hence the watermarks on the picture.
