    2. I got a little lucky on this one. I'm sad that I wasn't able to take it a bit sooner to get that guy out of the way.

    I'll probably be posting more when I get done editing them all. Tell me what you think.

    Where did you take number 7? That looks like a pretty cool place.

    It was in some rest area on highway 87 (I think) that goes between Amarillo, TX and Lamar, CO.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    I like them. Did you HDR a few of them?

    5 is great, and 7 must be taken in dartmoor, UK ;) I also like the clouds
    and the water running over that brick structure.

    Other than the clouds... why? It looks like even your dad is HDRed.

    I think these are good captures, or would be without the HDR. It's just not necessary and makes everything look cartoonish.

    Thanks for the honest comment. I simply did it because since I have been storm chasing it's been a habit to auto bracket every shot (or most of the time) and I was curious on how it would turn out. I personally like them the way they all turned out (as does my family), but I'm ok with it if nobody else does. That will give me a better idea of what the majority thinks about HDRing people HDR in general. If a lot a people don't like them, then I know that I won't waste a lot of time printing HDR's unless somebody happens to see one and request it. Then if I ever get good enough to take portraits and weddings then I also probably won't waste my time with it unless it's been requested.

    I'm not sure why everyone likes to bash HDR shots so much, I personally really like the way they turned out, and I don't find many of them cartoonish at all. Granted some shots are suited for HDR and some aren't but there's not many of these that look so totally unnatural.
    The way i see it, our eyes are capable of taking in a lot more tonal information than our screens are capable of displaying, so sometimes it actually lets the picture get closer to what we really see in life. (depending on how its used, and whether or not the person goes overboard)
