This month the contest theme is HDR Photography. HDR or (High Dynamic Range) is a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than current standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods. This wide dynamic range allows HDR images to represent more accurately the range of intensity levels found in real scenes, ranging from direct sunlight to faint starlight, and is often captured by way of a plurality of differently exposed pictures of the same subject matter.

Enter a photo by joining the group and attaching the photo to your response in this discussion, not a new discussion.
1. Entry photos must be somehow related to Long Shutter Speed Photography.
2. If you enter a photo - it must be your own work.
3. Post-processing or photo editing is allowed, but keep in mind if you go overboard on it, people probably won't vote for your photo.
4. 1 photo per person per month.
5. Members can give their opinions about entries, and then the entries will be narrowed down to three in the last few days of the month for final voting in a new discussion.

My London Eye photo, taken on Treys walk and workshop.
This is 3 x 30 seconds, photomatrix, photoshop :-)
Really like this image David, with a hint of humor... with the seagull in the foreground. Great image.
If this is an HDR project why are you requiring a long shutter speed? Not all the pictures posted meet that requirement.
Good question, Ron. And just how long is a 'long' shutter speed? Depending on lighting conditions, 1/100th of a second could be considered long. I didn't really notice anyone posting shutter speeds in their comments, and that's been made even more difficult, since the metadata in Photoshop/Adobe Bridge no longer includes shutter speed (which is really inconvenient).
it appears that those were the rules from last month's contest that were not changed for this month...I am pretty sure it is an oversight
I would agree with that but I posted a daylight scenic picture and it was removed. Maybe I'll try again.
Hmmmm... perhaps I accidentally changed something. I'll have to look through the settings.
