Oscar Wilde – “The Picture of Dorian Gray”
is this recent?
Hmm…. yes, very. Why do you ask? ;—/
just call me curious
:-D as always.
“Curious”….now that would be a great name for you :—))) As in inquisitive, I mean, not odd ..:-D
I did like Andrew’s coining of “Arty”. I had a friend once who didn’t like my real name so just renamed me one day, and she never used anything else. I got so used to the endearment that I introduced myself to others that way when she was in the group. Have a relaxing night, Arty :-)
Well, if the truth be known, people do think I am a little odd, but that’s fine, I don’t like to be put into a square hole. Now, Rhoufi, where have I heard that name before?
The most obvious answer is it’s an ancient town in Algeria that is supposed to be deserted, but the truth is the people just run away when anyone comes too close ;-)
I Like this shot Roufi – love the scale of the litte guy on the tar mac
Thanks Christine, yes it was the scale thing I was interested in. from this Gate you get to be fairly close and it struck me how small people are against these things.
you’ve taken it through a window and you can see some of the reflections in this case it works well :))
I was moving around trying to minimise the reflections, but in the end it was impossible – it was late in the day and the inside light was competing with the night. I guess trying to eliminate something that was really there can be pointless sometimes. Glad you like it. Wow, your new HDR stuff took my breath away. Is your HDR done inside the camera or via external software? It’s actually built into my camera – you choose the number of images and the camera produces one combined HDR image. I must experiment with it. With what you did it looked so good.
I used photomatix an external program this hdr was taken 2007 i think
Hi Christine, I have pasted your reply from your page to here to respond (see below).
That process would appear to take a long time and registration of each image must need to be exact. But what you’re saying is you only took one image at the time and created the 5 layers from differently processed versions of the same file and photomatix did the rest. I can see now how you don’t need to take the multiple images at the time. Amazing and innovative, you’re a mine of information, thanks heaps.

ah its all smoke and mirrors , I took the original shot in colour in the evening, then I converted to black and white , the I faked two exposures in photoshop one lighter one darker and several others I think I had 5 in all , then converted to hdr in photomatix . Not everything suits hdr but machinery and industrial shots work well with it I also prefer mono shots in hdr – just my preference
well this is how I do it my camera does not auto bracket as others do I know most people will take the three images all separate files and do it the proper way, but when I was figuring out how I could do the same thing with out three shots I thought why not just create duplicates of the shots all at different exposures, it seemed to work
Downright clever I reckon, and look how well it worked on “Transport for Interbeings”. I can’t really see why it would be any different. You could call it the Wilson Technique :-)
“station to station” and "its all happening here " are another two I have done in this way about page 9 I’m not good with Links " :))
Now I see why I thought it strange that you could get away with it. Auto bracket has a problem if the subject is moving – the time between shots causes the subject to move making the overlay impossible. You technique means the files overlay perfectly, even if the subject is moving. Hah, very cool Christine, realy cool.
Yes that’s exactly right unless your shooting a stationary subject , I’m sure othe people use it, :))
