that's clever - I like that.

Nice effects too. I have to ask, Dasha - Is the sun really in that position. PS trickery does exist doesn't it :-)

Regards, Rob

I studied the map now. Looks like you're looking west towards Williamstown. Sweet!

Wow Dasha...You have realy a great talent,I just love seing your photos...Another one into my Y.S collection and into "the best".Greetings,Timma.

Yes Rob the sun's actually there. Not sure if you know about HDR but this image is the composition of 3 exposures. That's what makes it appear to be so kind of dynamic and that's why things appear to be added on but all of the subjects here were there when I pressed the button.

Ahhh yep that is Williamstown in the background Rob.

Thanks Timma and best greetings also

Dasha, that's great mate. It is a unique presentation you have so that's the reason for my question. You not only pick great subjects, you're selective with times - ie sun position. I have looked into HDR and tried it myself but I'm only toying around. HDR explains the apparent depth in this photo. Again, I do like it.

I like HDR photos but how do you do them? A program?

dashalive on October 6, 2008

Hi Crdpolaris.

Google photomatix and do the tutorial for a kick start on High Dynamic Range.

Drop me a line if you get stuck and I will help you.

Enjoy - and have fun

Hi Rob

Thank you for clearing up the YS thing for me. I keep having people tell they are YS ing me . I thought maybe they were saying YOU SHITHEAD or something worse.

I don't delete people's comments either.... actually tell a lie - i did once a while back one guy was being offensive about one of my earlier shots that was overdone CS3 wise. But the only other time i delete comments is when I have seen someone elses shot a couple of thousand times.

Now, after this point is cleared dasha I can give You a YS on this picture without any doubt!!!

Greetings from Germany,
