Thou Shall Not Covet Thy Neighbors Job
My friend who works at a local car dealership brought home this really SICK (Mike Garcen would call it that) 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 with a 6.1 Liter V8 Hemi to let me get a closer look (drool). We parked it in the middle of the cul-de-sac with the streetlight shining down and I took approximately 30 shots of varying exposures then used Photoshop CS2 to merge them into a single High Dynamic Range (HDR) image using the instructions found at http://backingwinds.blogspot.com/2006/10/how-to-create-professional-hdr-images.html plus some other tweaks to get it 'just right'. Love the outcome -- think I'll do more once my new camera is delivered. Click the image to go over to Flickr to see a larger image.
And yes, the car is all that. I'm now thinking my children are smart enough to get college scholarships so can use their savings to purchase...whoops. Wife just came in -- scrap that idea.
