|Description ||Stonehenge under a cirrus sky.|
HDR works so well on rough old stone and polarised cirrus clouds.
| Sorry, but it doesn't do it for me.|
| Nor me Martyn. I like sky to look like infinite 'space' rather than a solid backdrop. I think that's the problem. The stones aren't bad, looking rather 3-D, but in most of these photos both areas [land/monument & sky] have too much going on - busy, busy, busy. The Silbury one came across best, and I think it's because there is less sky, so viewers can focus on the monument. (Sorry, kbr!)|
| As with the previous picture from KBR, I would call this a drama-photo of the Sky, with Stonehenge as its anchor.|
Fantastic use of HDR though.
| dont say sorry, its always good to hear an opinion, even (or especially) critical. I htink the technique works well on the stone itself as it brings out the texture, but I agree that as an academic record it would be bettre with less going on in the sky. I would love to be able to shoot in a glowing foggy dawn, like the ones I remeber passing by there as a kid (I was brought up in East somerset)|
| A very gracious reply kbr. I do hope you find your glowing foggy dawn and I'm sure we all look forward to seeing it. Meanwhile I'm sure you have many fans of this technique.|
