H Disney R

Contributed by N Capps

I took this photo at Disney World last weekend. I did not have a tripod with me but I thought this would make a pretty good HDR photo. All I did was make a copy of the original image and merge the two together. I know it could be much better, but for not having the proper means to create an HDR I think it looks pretty good.

This is a pretty good subject for an HDR, however I think compositionally you could have done better. While the tower just provide a focal point, the trees surrounding it take your eyes away. Furthermore, the tower isn't truly on the rule of thirds. The HDR processing was done well, with only one exception. The tower is in somewhat in a shadow and you probably shoulda brightened it some.

This HDR looks really good considering you didnt have a tripod to use in order to take the photos. I love how it makes the sky look and how the statue in the center looks. SPHS-AR

This is very well taken photograph. Your use of the rule of thirds helps to give the picture a good perspective to view the subject from. The ancient, monument look of the subject in a jungle like setting give the picture a mystical look. I'm not exactly sure what the subject actually is but it is still a nice one. Very good photograph.

For some reason i really like this photo! All the greens look so good and i really love the way the sky looks. You did a great job making the statue the only thing that really catches the eye and the rest of the stuff just looks really great. Overall its a really good photo!

I really like this picture. The color of the castle looks great. It contrasts great with the green from the trees. I would have liked it if the sky was clear on the left side, but it still looks good. You did a great job with the rule of thirds. Great job all around.

This is a great combination of thought provoking ideals. The jungle makes it mysterious and natural, then the building appears as the main subject. The dark clouds also add to the mysterious aspect of the picture. And I like how you just didn't put the building in the middle, you somewhat used the thirds. Again good job with the picture.

This is a really sick HDR, it almost looks like a cartoon. I just don't like the dark clouds at the top, maybe if you could just bring back the blue with an overlay or something.

This photo is decent. I do think that the photo could use a little brightening and the composition could use some cropping. I don't quite think the subject is in the rule of thirds, and I think the subject should be bigger if its going to remain centered by cropping out some of the trees or by off-centering the subject. I believe th photo to be off balanced, the subject is consumed by tress ons the right and then they become very sparse to the left. I think it could use some more work, it doesn't seem quite finished.

This photo is definitely a cool shot. The contrast of the trees is very beautiful against the building thing. I think the sky should have been edited a little more because it looks to dark and slightly collides with the trees. I also would have cropped the picture just slightly so the building was more on the rule of thirds line.

I think this is a beautiful execution of an HDR. The image almost seems to look more like a drawing or painting, the HDR adds an interesting quality to it. I like the contrast between the geometric and organic subjects; the building seems to rise from the tree tops in asserting its place amongst them. The colors are nice, i think the oranges in the structure could be pumped up a little to match the vibrant greens of the trees to the right and bottom of the image. The left and top of the image almost seem a little out of place. The trees to the left are much less vibrant and sharp which doesn't necessarily bother me because I can see how it creates depth. The sky is a little confusing though. I can't tell if it wants to be blue or grey. But in a way, it adds an element of mystery or foreboding so perhaps in that sense it works.

This photo is interesting to look at, the tonal range and color is amazing. The lighting enhances the old building very well.

This photo resembles a piece of art. I believe the lighting was pretty well done. You could have gotten maybe a better angle on the center of the idea. Thee background is fuzzy on the right side. By looking at this picture I thought it was pretty good.

Even though it may be a building at Disney World, when I look at this image, I truly feel as if I am exploring uncharted territory, which is really cool. The trees and the building are very lucious, though the way you darkened the sky really takes away from the photograph, it makes it seem artificial. You did a phenomenal job of merging images together, though. The way you use the rule of thirds could be improved slightly. Other than that, the saturation on the building really brings out beautiful shades of color. Nice image.
