ESA – Day1pm2

This movie requires Flash Player 9

A short time later, we’re down the road a little further when all the energy building in the skies let loose and man, it was simply, undoubtedly, amazing weather preforming magic for our cameras!

This movie requires Flash Player 9

Here’s the massive challenge. I’m shooting towards the sun, it’s on the right side of the photo. The clouds are dark as sin and then there is all that light leaking through. One capture wasn’t going to bring out that detail let alone the tans in the foreground. Both of these images are 5 image HDRs. Why don’t they look like HDR? I’m using it only to grab the highlight and shadow detail and that’s all. When mother nature provides you this kind of drama, I’ll be damned if I’m going to mess with it!
