Weekly Email 4-29-11 Mistake or Art ?

This week I was shooting the NYC skyline from the 39th floor of a building on 48th Street and First Ave.  I didn't have a tripod so as the light faded I decided to try a simulated high dynamic range image by taking several shot in small steps of exposure changes with the plan to process them in Photoshop to blend eight frames to become one.  Of course resting on a railing is not ideal for this since you have to hold still so the frames line up perfectly.
This is the image the software provided which is of course a bit off reality, but sometimes these "errors" are fun.

The exposures ranged from ISO 400 @ F/4.0 at 0.5 sec to ISO 250 F/4 @ 1/4 sec with the FinePix X100

    Love the electric colors. With HDR, either go subtle or extreme--and extreme works here!

  2. Pretty cool! It reminds of those Intel processor photos: http://www.wired.com/images_blogs/gadgetlab/2009/06/silverthorne_glamour_shot3.jpg
