Yesterday, when I arrived at home, the clouds in the sky were so beautiful I could not just let them “sit” there…
So I picked up my gear and went chasing them at the park up from my house.
It all started from this photo:
as we were driving along the bridge, I thought the sky looked mignificent.
And so it went on, with the sky growing dark as sunset approached.
There are more photos and music here.
I’d like to thank all the prople who voted for me in the contest at

Thank you so much!!
I look at other people’s photos, spend time on Instagram and such, and the more photos I see (and the more I like, because I like all type of photography), the more I am drawn to HDR.
If you google it and and follow the tutorials, it looks – in the end – not so difficult after all. All you have to do is take a bunch of bracketed photos and then process them together with the help of a software. The end result can be close to reality (just a little enhanced to give you that HD feeling), or something that really makes you go: “WOW!!”.
And this is exactly it: I like the “WOW” part. Period. I like the feeling that… you know it’s an edited HDR pic (for else how the heck could someone have taken a photo like that straight with his/her camera?), and so you consider the editing for what it can tell you. It’s the editing that makes it art.
You have to find a balance – a way to express your feelings and emotion when editing a photo as a HDR.
The pic above was taken at Cervo, a medieval town on the Ligurian coast. It’s one of those corners that appear on postcards and such – one of the many picture-perfect spots the village offers. Below is an unedited pic that shows you what the place looks like.
If you like HRD, please take a look at the gallery I have dedicated to it.
