My First HDR

By lianna  
Good evening all

Thank you for your wonderful response to my flying bug...... the humming bird lol! really appreciate the comments and votes...

I must say it is good to hear from you and see all your wonderful photos again!

So tonight was the last of my mini photography course and we learnt HDR images.... initially i wasnt sure about them, a lot you see have a but of a halo around them and look 'fake' but then others can look absolutely fantastic...

So here is my attempt.... Golden Gate Bridge last weekend when we thankfully had a break in the rain!

please let me know what you think Smile

regards to all x x x

The length/bredth of this bridge capture is very impressive indeed--- looks all of its distance (Nearly a mile) and more-- a spectacular image!

You've done really well with this first one, it doesn't look too over processed as some of them do. HDR is something I have to try at some stage.
