HDR

Do all you boys and girls know what HDR is?? The quick answer is that its a photo created from 2 or more other photos with varying exposures to make the exposure across the image more neutral I guess you would say. so dark spots aren’t dark and over exposed spots aren’t over exposed. Anyways, read about it here:
Wikipedia – HDR

Here is my first attempt at HDR. This photo was taken in PEI,

HDR-Sunset-PEI

just happened to have two photos with different exposures at the same spot. they are not perfect aligned as the original weren’t taken on a tripod or anything… It works though. Click on the image to see it full size. The big thing are the colours, the depth of colours stand out because of the HDR processing… So there ya go, try it yourself!

Oh, and thanks to Photomatix for the software, its just an eval copy, hence the watermarking.

Hockey

Well the KBHL championships are over, luckily I went to see Matt play on the tournament day, they just happened to also play the championship game the same day (in years past, the big game was always the week after). His team won, Fair Havens. So now all the Gallant males have wont he KBHL Championship trophy which is great. Check out the video of one of Matts saves below:


EDIT: not sure where the quicktime controls are, at least on mac I can’t see them, just hover the mouse over the image and click space bar, that starts it.

Also, see the album below with a photo set from the day.

My hockey ends with a final blow out game at the Sleeman center in Guelph, its just a shinny game so not as cool as a league championship but it will be fun none the less. Once thats done, I’ll be shifting my focus to moving probably. Woot! End of June is coming and I’m excited, lots of things to figure out /  do just yet. Actually the bigger thing right now is scheduling and figuring out Scotland, getting everyone on the same schedule, going when the least amount of people are there and figuring out when to take time off work.. We’re doing lots of big things this year. Gonna be a fun time!

Fern Resort

rings

We went hiking sunday afternoon, on a local ‘Bruce Trail’ trail, actually believe it was a side trail. It turned out to be a dead end. It was a nice sunny day, not incredibly warm yet but with the sun out it was nice. A bit of snow left, and lots of green things starting to grow, like the moss in the picture that was on a rock. A shaft of sunlight shone through the tall trees and the waving leaves. So we decided to take a picture of the rings on said moss. It makes quite a nice ‘dreamy’ photo I think!  So that was a packed day, church, swiss chalet for lunch with the Mckees, then an hour or so hike, then young adults that evening. A full day. And I drank too much coffee at YA so I couldn’t sleep. Boo-urns… Been busy today, with a flat tire, putting a hitch on the vehicle preparing for the ‘big move’, and examining my loose tie rod ends. Now I need to know how loose is TOO loose. Somehow I got from relaxing hike, to all the busy things I’ve been doing.
