03 Aug 11. The advent of the HDR approach to photography has opened some new doors to image creation that were basically available only to painters and sketchers in previous generations. The use of the technique can range from very weird looking images (grunge) or to merely provide content where it wasn't available prior, such as the lavender field building I shared a few days back. All of the aspects of the approach have their appropriate use, and it is up to the photographer how best to employ the technique. In this image I have strayed a bit into the grunge side to take a rather mundane scene/subject and give it some life. No, it doesn't look exactly like this rendering in the original, but the original is nowhere near as interesting as is this creation, at least in my eyes. You could actually go see it for yourself as it sits on my cousin's farm, and I'm rather certain he wouldn't mind you taking a gander, but you might even walk right past it and not see it in as much as I did for a couple of years before recognizing its potential. ISO 200; 1/640 sec (middle of 5) @ f / 6.3
