I didn't take this but I have been up to the top of Notre Dame. I think the photographer did a nice job of HDR on this.

I didn't know you could do the HDR thing in black and white, I thought it was strictly a color thing. It's more about the contrast I guess?

Neat pic.

Ansel Adams was a pioneer in HDR the old school way in the darkroom. Dodging and burning in black and white.

Edit: You know, I'd love to see his prints displayed side by side with prints made from his original negatives without the dodging and burning.

Yes, HDR just refers to high dynamic range and it is usually done by combining several exposures from 1-3 stops over to 1-3 stops under the normal exposure and then tone mapping them in a program such as Photomatix and then some additional post processing in something like Photoshop.

That being said you can always do the HDR thing and create a nice color image and then just convert it to B&W in Photoshop.

My main complaint with some HDR work is that it just is overdone in my opinion and looks fake.

I think someone here (Glatt or Chris, maybe?) has experienced this from the inside, on a Tiger Cruise, but, I would love to witness this first-hand before I die.

Being realistic, I prolly never will.

They used to teach us in school, Expose for the highlights and process for the shadows. The whole Zone System is based on a variant of that.

We didn't breach when I did my cruise but we did do some really deep dives and some steep angled dives and climbs which they call "angles and dangles".

I saw this on Google+ this morning, an image by Gregory Colbert. His work, Ashes and Snow is an ongoing project that weaves together photographic works, 35mm films, art installations and a novel in letters. You can check it out at http://www.ashesandsnow.org/

Wow. Amazing pics in this thread.

I really like the way that last one captures more than just the moment of the photo, but tells quite a story.

Yes indeed, I told my family about this pic.

Intellectually, I know that's what an eclipse looks like,
but that's the first pic I've seen like that one.

Great posting...
