Mr. HDR here! :-)
Just a quick note from Monument Valley. There is a time and place for HDR. Here are two shots from today. Straight shots. No HDR.
My point of this post: There is no substitute for great light and a GREAT subject.
I took both of these pictures with my favorite landscape lens: Canon 17-40mm.
Explore the light,
P.S. Yup! More HDR images to come in my next book, HDR Secrets. Might be ready for Photoshop World in Orlando! Be there or be square!
