I finally got around to experimenting with high dynamic range imaging. I wasn’t entirely thrilled with my results, but I uploaded an example to an album.
The images were taken with my father’s Kodak EasyShare P880 and combined in Gimp with the help of JD Smith‘s exposure-blend plug-in.
Edit: (08-Jan-2007) I got some nice originals this weekend for an end result of this image. Amazingly, the originals were taken with my own more point-and-shoot camera and I adjusted the exposure simply by pointing at bright/dark things before taking the respective image.
