Tag search ‘beauty’.

Larger here. There’s something quite photogenic about these old pieces of Americana.  At night, this one would read “Penee’s ALON OF B”.

Nice work – great graphic quality to this image.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

February 21, 2008

Ah …. The World Is But A Dream, originally uploaded by Gale Franey.

A ravishing image – I am consistently awestruck by Gale’s digital artwork. She uses her own photographs too. This one took two days and one night to complete.  It shows.

Lovely piece of graphic design – I thought it was a cross-section of a Nautilus shell when I first looked at it.

Farewell To Summer, originally uploaded by Gale Franey.

Gale is one of the most talented digital artists I have ever come across. All of the photographic work is done by her too, making it doubly special.

Today’s tag search is ‘hdr’. This is amazing – super-real.

Larger here. Thanks to John for pointing me in the direction of this image – for some reason, it was nowhere near the top of the ‘interestingness’ archive for images tagged ‘hdr’on flickr.

This from wiki on what HDR is all about:

In computer graphics and photography, high dynamic range imaging (HDRI) is a set of techniques that allows a far greater dynamic range of exposures (i.e. a large range of values between light and dark areas) than normal digital imaging techniques. The intention of HDRI is to accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to the deepest shadows.

HDRI was originally developed for use with purely computer-generated images. Later, methods were developed to produce a high dynamic range image from a set of photographs taken with a range of exposures. With the rising popularity of digital cameras and easy to use desktop software, the term “HDR” is now popularly used[1] to refer to the process of tone mapping together with bracketed exposures of normal digital images, giving the end result a high, often exaggerated dynamic range. This composite technique is different from, and generally of lower quality than, the production of an image from a single exposure of a sensor that has a native high dynamic range. Tone mapping is also used to display HDR images on devices with a low native dynamic range, such as a computer screen.

Electric Chair

On Fire, originally uploaded by cszar.

Nice piece of work. Larger here.


Very easy to do: set the camera to ‘bulb’ mode, use a color changing LED torch (mine are “Sauce Lightwands”) and trace the edges of the chair. Great fun!
