O Christmas Tree

This is the Christmas tree in the foyer of where I work.

I took several exposures, and combined them with specialized software to generate a “High Dynamic Range” (HDR) photo. The human eye can see both dark and light at the same time, but a camera can only capture one or the other very well. That’s one reason why a photo often doesn’t turn out the way you remember seeing it. The HDR technique essentially combines darker, lighter and regular exposures, thus replicating more closely what one’s eye really sees. I’ll post more of these HDR photos in the future. On my photoblog, you’ll notice that they’re tagged with the HDR category. Enjoy!
