    Talking Prehistoric days at Brookfield Zoo

    I took a series of HDR-prep shots (3 each -> @EV and +/- 2EV) of various "dinosaurs" I found at Brookfield Zoo, today. The exhibit runs until September, and it does give you a chance to realize the physiology and dimension of these various creatures of the past.

    It was a little too bright to get the strange and exotic colors you might hope to see under different lighting conditions ... So I messed with the HDR and filters to fudge a bit. Here are three initial efforts.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
