Lights and Shadows

My experimentation with HDR photography continues. Over the lovely weekend we had here in Cambridge I visited Anglesey Abbey and Lode Mill in Cambridgeshire. This picture is a composite of 3 photographs at -2, 0 and 2ev of a backlit tree. The images were processed in PhotoMatix Pro using the Painterly 2 filter with further adjustments.

Cambridge in HDR: River Cam

The Cam river is at its widest near the Jesus lock on the navigable part of the river. This HDR picture was taken from the Jesus Lock footbridge that connects Chesterton Road and Jesus Green.

Narcissus jonquil – Fragrant Beauty

Narcissus jonquil and Narciuss tazetta are two daffodil cultivars endowed with flowers that have a heady perfume. These members of the Amaryllis lily family are probably hybrids of Japanese daffodils. Each flower in the pictures below is about 1.8cm in diameter, but their heady fragrance can be felt metres away.
