@Geek, cool test idea. I'm a photo geek too and have always been somewhat fascinated by HDR.

It's something that is usually overdone. I know I went overboard with it when I first dicovered it, and now try to tone it back.

I think a thin DOF inage looks okay with HDR if it's a typical object in focus on a blurred background. Whenever theres forground AND background bokeh, it gets a little messy. Also seems to work better on wide shots, usually landscapes or shots that have a lot to show, not as much on detail shots or close ups.That may be a false generalization, but it seems to sum up my opinion on what i've seen.

The idea of HDR is being able to see more dynamic range in a given scene than you can with a single exposure. That being siad, it lends itslef to certain kinds of shots more than others. Shallow DOF shots often get a lot of their impact from NOT having a whole lot of dynamic range.

My .02

Cheers to another geek.

I'm in agreement with this. I like HDR, but a lot of it is overdone. I was guilty of overdoing it also. The stuff I do now is much more toned down.
Someone somewhere wrote that HDR is great if you can hardly tell it's been done.

Two Firsts

Two firsts today. HDR with a bike involved and first day competing at Trials.

All Iphone apps, with no computer editing.

Still trying to work out which of two I'm using is better, Pro HDR, or True HDR. finding they take turns at which gives the better result.

R1200GS in front of NY GCS

I live 5 blocks from Grand Central Station so I figured I could not find a better backdrop for my new 2007 R1200GS. Coocase S50 mounted on the back.

Taken (this very cold morning ) with my Canon S110 +/- 1.2 AE Bracketing. Edited in Photomatix.

Oh wow, I have been looking at the Canon S110 and trying to decide if I can justify the money to buy it. You're photos aren't helping me with not spending the money.

Hey LB,

I bought the canon S90, then S95, skipped the S100 and just bought the canon S110. I have to say, this camera just keeps getting better and better.

Besides the Automatic Exposure Bracketing for HDR, my next favorite feature is the Super Vivid Color setting. (Not to be confused with the confusing Vivid Color setting). My avatar was taken using super vivid color with the canon S95.

This camera is incredible. When I travel my Nikon D90 stays in the hotel 99% of the time b/c the S110 is so good and so portable...

My advice, Splurge, it's so worth it.

Lawrence

Drsilver,
Thanks for the review. I'm probably going to suck it up and spend the money. That camera has so many cool features.


jdgretz,
Cool bikes. Was that a ride or a show with all those bikes?

I sure do like this thread.
