Another HDR Experiment

As I said in the last posting, the effect of HDR is most dramatic when there is a wide variation in light and dark areas. Lit night-time scenes are the best subjects, but those are in short supply around here so I have to make do with subjects closer to home.

I was looking around the lounge this morning in search of inspiration when I noticed some ornaments on the main shelf of our dresser. I moved one or two things around, set my camera up for HDR exposures, and after manipulating the image a little on the computer I got this image:

I really like the colours, the way the HDR processing has brought out the grain of the wood, and how the special filters I applied give the photo the look of a painting.

There is a whole world of HDR creativity out there waiting to be discovered!
