Photo of the Week

Credit: Dennis Bickers

The Lighthouse This dramatic photo by Dennis Bickers is called a High Dynamic Range photo in which he take a series of bracketed photos from a tripod (three to seven shots), combining them into one photograph.  "When you bracket the photos, you will get all of the beautiful sky in one shot but the foreground will be to dark to see," Dennis explains. "On the other side of the bracketed shots will be the foreground in the way that you see it, but the sky is all washed out. The other shots in the middle simply gives you the full range of shadows and colors."  Dennis says this photo was not artistically enhanced; there simply were three or more photos to bring out the best lighting and detail possible.
