    I've been lurking for a while and finally got a photo that I actually wanted to share. I took this in August at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, and that is Bruce Cockburn on stage. If anyone has any ideas on how I could have prevented Bruce from getting so blown out without sacrificing the sky, I would love to hear them.

    Thanks for looking!

    Cool shot! I like how the sky is still properly exposed without the stage being totally blown out. In answer to your question, there's really only one way to do it - take different exposures for different zones of light intensity. Google HDR for more info.

    I haven't tried an HDR yet, so I don't entirely know the process, but given that it requires several shots to combine, wouldn't that cause some weird effects with moving subjects? What I'm wondering is would I wind up with doubling or tripling of performers on stage? It might still be closer to what I'm looking for, but that's something I was wondering about.
