Guest Photo of the Day: spring sunset


spring sunset, originally uploaded by wandering_lens.
Sometimes, a digital camera sensor just doesn't interpret what the eye sees. In these cases, it's incumbent on the photographer to restore what the camera missed. Usually I don't like High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography, feeling that it adds a surreal hyper-reality to images; but in this case, photographer Aaron Kennison has used HDR to simply recreate the extraordinary look of a real-life exceptional sunset. I've seen images like this myself in real life, but reproducing them on film--digital or otherwise--is a real trick, and one that WL has accomplished very nicely with this photo.
