Sometimes you see a mediocre photo and feel like it just hasnít reached potential yet.† Look at the Bokeh on this beast. I just had to enhance it. Itís another one of those ďhdr except from one photoĒ after effects. The harsh effects of HDR kind of turn me off of it sometimes but you just need to stop looking at it as a reasonable representation of what was there and start looking at it as an expression of art.† This next piece is more art than photo.
Only in that context does a lot of the HDR movement make sense. As a novice photographer I really thought this stuff looked tacky. Well we all grow.
Also I am in love with excessive bokeh.
