An HDR made up of 3 images.
Ppl were moving all over the place, as you can imagne, though I liked the ghosting - it sort of reveals a frenzied activity in front of a serene memorial.
What do you think?

I think the blurry people detract from the image. I'm not sure they really add to the composition even if they were perfectly sharp. Personally, I'd try cropping off everything below the reflecting pool.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

I am not a fan of the blurred people. I would try to crop too.

The photo is on a slight tilt..oddly enough, I would rather see the people and the ghosting:confused: as opposed to the memorial ..


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

I placed the camera on the stairs in Lincoln memorial..So if the picture is tilted, that means the stairs are :) ..or my camera is tilted :confused:

Maybe its just me, but while I like the capability that HDR provides, it usually needs more adjustment once its processed. To be more specific, I like the greater light range, but I would still like a more natural flow of light. The foreground seems like it is too light relative to the rest of the scene -- or the light could even go in the other direction and imply an incoming storm.

That's so hidden. 1) You've got a great cross going with the WM in the middle and the gray walkway across the middle horizontally. WTF. 2) The first thing I see (besides a snapshot of the WM), is the woman with the green shirt and orange bag. 3) The next place my eye goes (and I crit for a living) is the woman with her back to the monument, shooting the sign or something. THEN (4TH!) is the moving mini-people behind her. (I know this post is so OLD...)

I see a new bumber sticker in the making - Blurred people should be cropped.

Its hard to get those HDR shots when you have people moving like that... i'd almost say pp in photoshop for a similar effect and then no blurry people.. or crop like others have said.
