I made a couple of images this afternoon, some are plagued by dust bunnies (LX5! How I miss ya!) and one of them, this one, is an HDR image. That’s one more trick a DSLR’s has in its sleeves. I gave it a mild treatment based on Photomatix Pro’s Dynamic Range Compression tone mapping method. This is particularly well suited to soft sky gradients. Due to the subject matter we are clearly again in Electric Ladyland.

As always the Song of the Day is “Have You Ever Been (To Electric Ladyland)” from Jimi Hendrix’ 1968 album “Electric Ladyland”. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. Interesting processing on this. i would not have guessed HDR. I need to give Photomatix another try.
    I had the Hendrix album many (many) years ago.

    • I needed it to hold detail in the sky and still have a foreground. In life the sun was not mild like this, it was blinding. This aspect is lost. Otoh the foreground in relation to the overall sky is pretty what it was.
