Another example of HDR...instead of taking three photos with different exposures...you can also use one photo and save three different versions of it with different exposures. This will only work if the original photo has a wide range of exposure levels in it already.
Bobbi had suggested that I post an image of an old Barn. I had earlier posted a photo of an old house that was in the movie "League of Their Own" that was filmed on this property. This is the barn that goes with the house. There is a scene in the movie where the two sisters are milking a cow...this is the barn that it was filmed in. It is a mile or so from my house.
The photo was taken in the late afternoon with the sun low on the horizon. This time of day casts long shadows and I thought it was appropirate to take a shot of the barn at this time. The sun was figuratelively setting on this old barn. Having seen it's better days, it still stands as a reminder of of the days when the family farm was passed from generation to generation. Never a questions as to what you were going to do with your life...you were going to carry on the tradition with pride.
The old barn housed the harness for mules and in later years probably the first gasoline tractor in the family. When I stand in the precense of an old farm, I like to listen closely for the children who used to run through the fields on hot summer evenings chasing after ligthening bugs. I swear I can sometimes hear their laughter.
With the video games and multiplex movie theater of today...keeping the kids out of the yards and fields...the lightening bugs are probably having a growth spurt in their population.
