Tacky Corner

  • One cheesy tin, badly lit "Let It Snow" sign (made in China)
  • One Pink Flamingo with Red Bow
  • One "See Rock City" birdhouse (you have to be from the South to understand)
  • One hummingbird- on- a- stick
  • One set of small spiral Christmas trees, starting to fall apart
  • One pair of knock-off Indian silhouettes
  • One defunct rock fountain

Add them all together and they make

An Official Tacky Corner!!!

HDR Scenics- Lake Pleasant

These are HDR (High Dynamic Range) images. HDR is a technique of combining images taken with different exposures so there is a greater range of luminance in the light and dark areas of the images... so that you can see more detail of the image at a more even light range. Digital photography doesn't handle light ranges as well as the human eye, which automatically adjusts to light and dark; HDR allows us to create images that appear closer to what we actually see. These all are merges of three images, shot on a tripod and with relatively long bracketed exposures.
