I took this photograph of the long shadows cast by the morning sun on the forest floor a couple of weeks ago. This is an HDR photo consisting of five exposures merged by HDR Pro in Photoshop and then converted back to LDR 16bits.
I still couldn’t get rid of the overexposed leafs in the middle, but will try again sometime in the future and repost if I get a better result. The photograph in my opinion would have been better if I had shot from a different angle so that the shadow and sun lines go straight up and if I had omitted from the frame the small branches in the bottom left corner. Too late now …
On the same morning, but some time earlier, before the sun rose I took this sunrise photograph.
This is also an HDR photo consisting from five exposures, although three or even a single exposure might do as the dynamic range wasn’t that high after all. I like the fields on the consecutive levels in this photograph, but the trees in the background don’t add anything to the image. In addition, I think this image is a bit dark and moody but this exposure conveys best the light at that time.
