Were you at the game last night? So were we, at least until the lightning delay.

Yup! Our apartment manager treated all interested residents to tailgate food and the game.

We were in section P and departed just as they called the delay. I'm glad we did because the rain was crazy by the time we were at the Capitol.

So I have a question - how did you get the water into the picture? Is it a merge or did only one of the pics have the water in it? Or is it not an HDR pic at all?

It is HDR. Three exposures all with the fountain. I was curious how the shot would look since the water would have motion blur anyway.

I think that most of the water was in the highlight range; so, upon tone-mapping, most of the highlight range came from a single photo resulting in less ghosting. It worked really well.

That photo is all kinds of sexy. That would make a great painting.

Or a great photo. It's beautiful as is. Damn HDR, it makes the world so damn pretty. I want glasses that do that!

Ooh. NO kidding!

Now I really want that.

Gradient contacts would get you half way there. Darker on top, lighter on the bottom so you take in less light from the sun and more from the ground.

I have no real idea of that would actually work...

In my experience contact lenses are not static, they tend to roll about on your eyes and they move when you blink. My mom has bifocal contacts, I have no idea how she deals with that.

My mom has an astygmatism... they weigh down the bottoms of the contacts for special things like that.

Really? Weird!
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: July 30th, 2008 05:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah.. it works rather well, actually... until you try to lay down on your side.
