mono HDR? Awesome whatever technique You used. Y*.

whoelius on June 4, 2009

Cheers, Lukasz.

No, I haven't dared venturing into the HDR field yet. It's just high contrast with some shadow lightening, and then repeating the process.

Glad you like it. It took me about an hour! :D

Greetings from Germany, Mario

Say, whoelius, are you back to our side of the Atlantic?

whoelius on June 7, 2009

Thanks, Mario :)

No, Norrel. This was an old photo from December. I deleted it from Panoramio, played with it, and put it back up.

Good luck in the competition.

Awe!! I love it whoelious ;>)

I have tried something similar (but not as good as this) myself.

I do enjoy tweeking the contrasts to this level. The image almost shrieks out, with the stress of all that stark mono!!

Nice job ;>)

Cheers, Andreas, Gabe and Jim. I was pretty pleased with this one. Fighting an inevitably lost battle against the spammers, of course, but maybe one day!

I love contrast! This is so cool with all the odd angles in it. Very science fiction. :D I think you deserve a star!
