    Another stunner. Are these all hand-held Jemma?

  • They are indeed hand-held Glenn – I have to regulate my breathing when doing so. I hold my breath when I press down the shutter as burst mode ;)

    So, I’m very curious…what is HDR and Photomatix? And when you say that this is from 3 separate exposures, do you mean that you layered each photo on top of each other in a program similar to Photoshop or do you mean that you took one photo of this with 3 separate exposures all in one shot?

  • HDR is High Dynamic Range. For most of my HDR images I take 3 exposures – an underexposed one, correctly exposed one and overexposed one. Photomatix is the separate program I use to combine these photos together to create a full exposure range – i.e. it takes the shadows from the overexposed image and the highlights from the underexposed one, then the mid-tones from the correctly exposed image. Hope this makes sense..
