ALWAYS SOMETHING NEW TO LEARN

For some time I have been going to investigate HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography but kept putting it off until I read MTWaggin Blog and she inspired me to get learning and have a go. So I grabbed my camera and went for an afternoon walk in winter to our local little lake. Here is my first effort at HDR.

Dennis Lake, Daisy Hill, Qld.



Its a start but I have lots to learn yet.
Here is a good site if you want to learn more about HDR photography

  3. Diane, I know what you mean by HDR. Never done it myself, but you have been fiddling, and photos do look different.

  6. I don't understand. They all look good to me. But there is something different about them. Kind of.. dynamic!

  7. Diane, I like the photos! I think this way the photos are more "alive", perhaps more depth to them. I am not that far into photography, but I guess it can grow to want to know more!

  8. HI Diane, I'm finally back and following you! I have looked at MTWaggin's blog and swing between her photos and yours still trying to get my head around the concept. I trust it will come to me in time, as I love new ideas in photography. Your photos are very good.

  9. Kudos to you for giving this a go. I'm still in two minds about it, it looks great on some subjects but weird on others. I think these have come off pretty well.

  11. I keep hearing about HDR but still not really sure what it is. Your shots are lovely so I will have to investigate.

  13. I love trying out new concepts Diane ... especially if it improves the end results on scenes where part of the pic is a bit washed out Sounds like something I must try

  14. Hmmmm! Lovely photos of the Lake etc. Seems that HDR is not well known from the comments. I can't see any difference. All your photos are excellent.
    I suppose "Grosvati" is on cloud 9 with the 7th Wimbledon crown of the FedExpress? This is the first year that I have not got up to watch even one
    match live. I think it is called - AGE!!!
    Cheers and great "HDR" (???) photos

  19. Don't know what it is but love the pictures -- you are a role model for not being afraid to learn new "stuff".

  20. Diane, you are brave to try all these new tools and photogrpahy lessons. The lake shots are pretty, well done! I am as with everything it takes practice and more practice. Have a lovely day.

  22. I'm impressed that you are learning to shoot HDR images. I haven't tried HDR, but I thank you for the link to the tutorial. One of these days I may give it a try.

  23. HDR is something I haven't tried but wanted to. I learn best when someone shows me rather than reading but will give the link a look-see.
    Love that reflection shot!
