This is a stunning HDR Photo from Darlene of Her View Photography. I just recently came into contact with Darlene through my other blog, and was extremely pleased when she submitted this photo to Daily HDR. She has a great portfolio so you should definitely go take a look at some of her other work.
While I was down in Siesta Key, things definitely took a turn for the stormy at one point. This is my first HDR creted with Nik Software’s latest creation: HDR Efex Pro. So far, I’ve gotta say, it’s pretty sweet. I’ll need to play around with it some more, but this is the first program I’ve seen come close to knocking Photomatix off it’s HDR throne. Stay tuned for a review at some point.
A few weeks back I posted an HDR photo of downtown Seattle from Qwest field. Well I also got a shot from the other direction of Safeco Field – home of the Seattle Mariners. The image is a little soft because it was taken handheld as I was leaving the stadium, but the neon lights and sunset still make for a pretty cool shot.
Also I’ll be releasing my first photography ebook here in the next 2 weeks called Make Your Photos Not Suck: 50 Ways to Improve Your HDR Photography – so be on the lookout for that!
The Kush, The Mosque, The Machine – that’s the name Shane Shrader gave me for this photo from FOB Lightning in Gardez, Afghanistan. Never thought I would have seen an Afghanistan HDR come in for submission, so I was pretty excited to see this very eery photo come in from Shane. It was taken using a Canon G11 and was shot on 12/30/2010.

Last week I took an impromptu trip down to Siesta Key, Florida to hang out with some friends. While it was a little bit colder than I was expecting it to be throughout the duration of the trip, we still had a great time, and witnessed some spectacular sunsets. This is just one of them, taken from right outside the beach house we stayed in. Shot with a Nikon D5000 and Sigma 18-200mm lens. It was Shot at f/8, iso 200, and was a 3 bracket composite.
