  1. thanks for the photo tour beautiful.

  2. Wow…really? I’ll be very honest with you here…If I ever see an image like the one featured above published in the actual magazine, then I’ll cancel subscription. Wow…I guess halos from sloppy HDR post processing are here to stay.

    Congratulations though to everyone who got images included. Some really stunning work here.

  3. Thank you so much Arizona Highways for including my images in the “Friday Fotos” BLUE feature…..always an honor!! Such beautiful images this week… congrats to all of the featured artists!!!

  4. Why complain about HDR?? It was pioneeres around 1850 by Gustav Le Gray to render seascapes showing both the sky and the sea. Le Gray used one negative for the sky, and another one with a longer exposure for the sea, and combined the two in a single picture in positive. High dynamic range imaging was originally developed in the 1930s and 1940s by Charles Wyckoff. Wyckoff’s detailed pictures of nuclear explosions appeared on the cover of Life magazine in the mid 1950s.

    Nothing wrong with HDR at all, when done right. I agree with John, though. When I saw the sloppiness (that halo looks bad!), I was surprised it was posted on Arizona Highways – especially as the main image for this post. Fortunately, you don’t see images like that in the magazine.
