Photo Contests

Now that my wife and I are back from our amazing vacation to the Eastern Sierra, I have many, many gigs of photos to go through.

One of the fun things that I’m doing with all of these images is entering a few of them in an ongoing photo contest on the State Parks website: http://www.myparkphotos.com/potd.html

So far, I entered 4 images and have been fortunate enough for each one to be selected as Photo of the Day!  Hopefully I’ll have a shot at Photo of the Month.

This is what I posted, take a look and let me know what you think (you can comment below)!

And finally, here’s another photo from the trip that I entered in the B&H Photo/Video Fall Color Contest:

In case you’re wondering, these images were created using either my Canon 60D, or my Sony NEX3.  Each of these is a composite of at least 2 images, merged to bring out the full range of detail in both the shadows and highlights using Photomatix and Photoshop.

I’ll try to put my thoughts and process in some kind of logical order and dedicate a post on HDR (at least my take on it).

That it for now.  With a little luck I’ll be sharing a Photo of the Month!  Until next time, Happy Shooting!
