When life comes at you

I have been feeling the weight of life coming down on me lately. This wonderful quote from Leonard Cohen helps keep things in perspective

There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in.

HDR photo experiment

I have been seeing alot of HDR photography lately on the web and frankly most of it is pretty boring to me. Like a new toy photographers have gotten it is over used as of late. But some HDR can be really great. So I thought I would try my hand at it. I hope I didn’t fall prey to the siren song of HDR. If I start posting lots of these types of images please remind me of this post…

For those of you who don’t know about HDR or what it is. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and it combines multiple exposures into one final photo. I took three photo at Astors in Newport at a wedding a few weeks back and took some time to blend them using the new Photoshop CS5 HDR I like it. Here are two images dark and light that I started from I also took a middle exposure not posted but I think you can get the idea here.

And this is what we ended up with. Let me know what you think?

I drove past this place yesterday and it caught my attention because I think it was still open? Trying to sell beer… This place looked like it needed repairs in the 70’s and still hadn’t gotten them.

These leaves look so beautiful here trapped under ice, it reminds me that we all have a beauty about us it is just sometimes waiting to thaw out a bit.
