Africa for Dummies by awefaul

Currently unavailable for purchase

There is a shop at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, selling an idea of Africa that doesn’t exactly correspond to reality. Luckily the dummies didn’t move between the three exposures, so I could use Photomatix for tone mapping and Photoshop CS4 for the final HDR image.

There are people who actually shop there as you can see here:

Digital photography is doing for photography what the piano did for keyboard music. You can still play music composed for the harpsichord on the piano but not the other way around.
