I walk around the neighborhood to exercise. I take pictures of the flowers in the yard, clouds, beaches, sunrises and sunsets. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

On HDR

I like to take the pictures in HDR mode in my camera.  It takes three pictures (-1, 0, and +1 EV) in rapid fashion and stitches together for a picture.  It presents clear details in dark side and reasonable details in bright side.  The best example is the picture of a person standing in front of a beach.  The camera's automatic mode will have an over-exposed sky and an under-exposed person, especially the face.

Of course, one can take three or more bracketted pictures and process a HDR picture home with softwares, for example, Photmatix or Photoshop, to produce a picture of your liking.  Here is the example of a post-processed HDR picture in the bottom and in-camera HDR picture on top.  I adjusted the cloudy sky in the bottom picture a little bit more that don't look "natural" (This is my wife's reaction).

P.S. I don't have Photoshop software in my computer.  I use an app "Pro HDR" in iPad to process the HDR pictures.  It is free and there are tutorials in YouTube for this software. Check it out!
