The Auto Show is made for HDR images

I've made mention in the past that HDR, High Dynamic Imaging is one way to control contrast and get details in the highlights and shadows beyond what a normal DSLR can capture.

Since it is a bracketed exposure set to capture highlights, mid-range and shadow as "perfectly exposed" when you get around to generating the HDR file you have complete detail across a much broader EV scale than what you can get with just one image.

Both of these are HDR images that I post processed with the help of Adobe's CS5.  The Top image, that of a Cadillac ELR that is set for production in the next few years was done more with a surreal touch whereas the Mustang GT500 was done with a more realistic blending.  Both work for their own reasons.  Both will show up in publications around the web.

I have on flickr an entire set devoted to the 2011 L.A. Auto Show HERE.

What I did Friday night...

Yup we saw Cyndi Lauper on her "Memphis Blues Tour".  Great concert, amazing energy and songs by Cyndi Lauper.

A little panorama action...

Yesterday I went to Torrance to the American Honda HQ for an Acura event.  While there they opened up their museum for a luncheon and a tour.  IT was quite impressive to see their collection of historically significant Honda's and concept cars from over the years.

This image was done with the photomerge too in Adobe's CS5.  The program does a pretty slick job of matching frame content to create a single large image.  Enjoy the sneak peak into the American Honda Museum that is not open to the public, rather is a by invitation only.

Very Foggy Morning

Its not the tool used that makes the difference, its the photogs eye.  This little gem was grabbed this morning with my cell phone as just an example of using a low res tool to its advantage.
