A really interesting photo

This is neat, sent to me by my friend Herb Lewis. Look at the camels in the photo and then scroll below the photo for more.


This is a picture taken directly above these camels in the desert at sunset.
It is considered one of the best pictures of the year.
Look closely, the camels are the little white lines in the picture.
The black you see are just the shadows!!

grandmas loft is spinning — amazing photo

This is a photo I found on Flickr. It’s worth going to the larger image on Flickr (click the photo) and view it.  I enjoy browsing photography sites and seeing what others are doing. I can always learn something in addition to just admiring good work. This shot is an example of “HDR” photography which is explained in more detail here:

High dynamic range (HDR) images enable photographers to record a greater range of tonal detail than a given camera could capture in a single photo. This opens up a whole new set of lighting possibilities which one might have previously avoided—for purely technical reasons. The new “merge to HDR” feature of Photoshop CS2 allows the photographer to combine a series of bracketed exposures into a single image which encompasses the tonal detail of the entire series.
