Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years. 

HDR Tennis

There's a group/page on Facebook called HDR Tennis. Basically it's a group of established, maybe even professional (I don't know for sure) HDR shooters that are given a set of bracketed shots and come up with their own HDR interpretation. It's really interesting to see how differently everyone "sees" a shot. The admins are nice enough to let us lay people have a go at the brackets, and so I did. Keep in mind the shots aren't mine, but the admittedly over the top processing is.

This was an interesting exercise because normally when when I shoot brackets for HDR work I have an idea of what I want to do with them as I'm shooting them. Working with someone else's brackets, where I didn't have that base to start from, was kind of refreshing and allowed me to do some things that maybe I wouldn't have done had the shots been mine to begin with.

If you like it, and you're on Facebook, please head on over here to "like" it, thanks.
