That's not fair, Toe! I'm 2000 miles away from the strip and your photo makes me want to be there right now. The closest casino to us in West Virginia just doesn't cut it. I want to know what chip you used in your fast to make it go into hyperspace. Now that's launch control! Excellent photo! O0
haha Patrick...kudo's are all mine this time, i put my D2X on a bogen tripod in the back seat, used the 10.5mm fisheye lens and ran a remote cord up under my arm to start each exposure, during the exposure i used (2) multi-max transcievers to pop the flash that was located just in front of the center console to illuminate the interior.
1 shot had no flash, the 2nd shot had 1 flash pop and was correctly exposed, the 3rd shot had 2 or 3 flash pops and was overexposed purposely for highlights, then all 3 images were imported into photomatix to create the HDR final image.
Thanks guys, glad you liked the image, ill do some more messing around with it, looking forward to a sunset and maybe some B&W HDR's of the car
lumns, I live in Salem, Ohio, near Youngstown. We're about 30 minutes from Mountaineer in WVA (casino and horse track), and about an hour from Pittsburgh and Cleveland. As you can imagine, we're split about 50/50 between Steeler and Browns fans.
Blacksburg is a nice area. Drove up from Pawleys Island taking back roads all the way and went thru there. Also drove under the New River gorge bridge on the same trip. Wish I would have had my GTI for that trip. Great twisty roads!
Here is another one, i think this one looks more HDR and less photoshop filter, i never used the program to combine the images before so im still figuring it out, you guys like this one better? i do. Patrick, didnt have to stay all that still, the flash pop stops everything inside the car and the desired effect outside is motion blur so it works perfectly
I think the second one is much more artistic!! Definitely could sell it to VW, I think. Both are wicked in there own respects. Kinda like choosing between a 15$ Korean hooker with one leg to a 25$ tranny midget, different, but both great in there own little ways.
