New photography contest - HDR (open for two weeks)
And now time for the new contest to start! The theme is *hides under desk* HDR! The subject matter is your choice, as long as it is an HDR picture. Each person can submit up to three pictures as usual. Because of the holidays, we will keep this contest open for two weeks. This is probably our last photography contest until after PMA 2010. CES leaks will probably start before 2010 comes in, so things will get crazy for a few weeks.
Speaking of HDR, there is a brand new plea/essay on HDR at Luminous Landscape by Alexandre Buisse.
