Editor's Choice at HDR Spotting
In Spring I posted this photo on Trey Radcliff's website called HDR Spotting. I was lucky enough to have this one picked as an Editor's Choice Award. They were looking for some great HDR photos from around the world. HDR methods provide higher dynamic range from the imaging process. Non-HDR cameras take pictures at one exposure level with a limited contrast range. This results in the loss of detail in bright or dark areas of a picture, depending on whether the camera had a low or high exposure setting. HDR compensates for this loss of detail by taking multiple pictures at different exposure levels and intelligently stitching them together to produce a picture that is representative in both dark and bright areas. This was shot on Tassajara Road, in Pleasanton, California during the spring.
