    Hey! I like that bike! That's the best bike I had in all this time

    The one I had before only lasted a year, after that everything was covered in rust and at some point suddenly the thing that changes gears jammed the rear wheel, struck out some of the spokes and was bended beyond repair in the process. The one before that was a racing bicycle. The problem with that was that all the cables were rusty so breaking, changing gears, etc wasn't working well or not working at all. Then I had a flat tire and I decided the value of a new tire exceeded that of the bike.

    I had to bicycles stolen over the years, by the way. One was returned by the police, luckily, but the other one I never saw again.

    I love the way every time and HDr goes up this gets said.
    I agree, this is said almost every time. I do understand the sentiment though, as many HDRs posted look very unreal - sometimes intentionally, but very often because people have not learned how to do them.

    However, I do think people generalize too much when it comes to HDRs. In my opinion a well executed HDR can look just as good as a shot with ND Grad filters. Each technique has it's advantages and limitations. Where HDR can deliver better results with irregular horizons, ND Grads shine where there's motion in the scene.

    On a related note, wrong use of a ND Grad filter can look very bad as wel, for instance if too strong a filter is used and the brightness of the foreground is overpowering the image or when things are sticking out across the horizon suddenly become black as they reach higher. The thing is that you don't see that happen nearly as often as that technique is not as readily available and the technique is not hyped so much.


    Here's another image from Australia, a lone tree in Kata Tjuta:

    Oh yeah! Great one! And it looks great in B&W. The second one--not so much. The car is too dark and the eye is drawn to the "Orange" in the back.

    Appreciate your feedback. I really like the 2nd one because of the heat blur, the "layers" on the right side, the tire debris on the road, and I think the "Orange" in B&W is a cool effect too. And, I think there is a good balance of, well, black and white in the image. Dark portions of the car look OK to me.
