From film to HDR

This topic reminds me of something I did a while ago.
Since a color negative film contains all the 'information' at a range of many stops, much more than any digital sensor, I had the idea of creating an 'HDR'
image from a single color neg frame.
The technique was to scan the same frame in different analog levels and merge them to an HDR image.
Then I realized that this is the same thing we used to do in color printing class, at photography school:
we exposed the highlights longer and the dark areas less.

This is the 'HDR' version of a negative frame.

If an image is oversaturated, very contrasty, looks like "photoshopped" or unreal, than it's a failed HDR.
It's a mistake when people say that photomatix tonemapped photos are true HDR images.
HDR is a way to increase image's dynamic range, not to make it look radioactive

It's my belief that most people are actually conservatives; they just don't know it. Keeping in mind that thatherist corporitism is actually laissez-faire liberal economics and quite unconservative have a look at these for the real thing:

and most outrageously (a popes encyclical from 100 years ago):

I can't imagine you are freethinking enough to read that but it would be interesting to see your opinion.

Conservatism and communism have nearly identical goals: the happy peasant, but with a nod to hierarchy and tradition (those accomodations learned over the ages).

However if you don't believe in free-will then socialism is fairly logical really. It is a command and control structure that emphasies the community over the individual (if the 'I' is just a delusion of a collection of brain cells then that's quite reaosnable). Liberalism is the opposite: emphasising personal rights over the community by confusing freewill with freedom.

True conservatism, which neither Republicans nor the UK's Torys have, is all about "a community of free individuals"; a sort of balance: living in harmony with and for each other

A typical socialist structure is the military, or a large corporation (socialism in microcosm): a nice irony. Thatcher has a lot to answer for. So does Bush. There is no one to vote for.

Nick,

Yours doesn't look HDR to me. I think the problem with HDR is that people go overboard, and everything looks fake.

The examples from DGA and Sparrow are what I personally think is excellent use of HDR. They look like lovely and evenly exposed photos which doesn't look fake at all.

Best,
Jy

@all - I did tone these down a lot. Originals look someone vomited up color.
@ Sparrow - how did you do the fake one? It looks great!
@Lorriman - I was a Rand reading to the right of Limbaugh "conservative" for a long time - not n' more, and not ever. They disgust me and are dragging this country down - big time. They're on the wrong side of every issue - Iraq, climate change, taxation, reproductive rights, economics - name it. It's actually what defines them (being on the wrong side of every issue). I'm talking about the "US" brand of "Glenn Beck" conservatism. I will give your links a read. I have some time today. Thanks...

Thank you, it was one of those mornings, about 0600 and a beautiful Mediterranean sunrise couldn't go wrong really, I just over photoshoped it a bit to get that

Looks like the sky/clouds have been pasted in, so I would guess it was HDR

I did it as a joke, warmed up the colours and put that blue cast in the sky, put a dramatic curve to tighten the ends of the histogram, then dodged and burned .. all I can see is the halos and poor colour, I actually printed it in monochrome.
