Intermezzo

I've been fascinated with HDR since I was first introduced to it about a year ago.  HDR is High Dynamic Range photography, the merging of three photos of the same scene taken with different exposures.  The blending allows you to get more detail in the scene. 

While most HDRs are of outdoor scenery, I played with this photo of cousin's cat.  I loved the many colors in the shot, and blending the three exposures allows for maximum exposure of the different colors and patterns.

It's a lot of fun. I often can't tell whether I'll like a digital photo until I see it on the computer screen. And now with HDR I don't know how it will come out until I actually merge the pictures. The conversion software has a dozen or more presets plus infinite adjustments, and I have no idea which way to go with it until I see how it looks. This is one of the "grunge" settings.
