Challenge series hosted by David Lumsden. Challenges start on Wednesdays.
Don't just capture a world, change it. Many DPR Challenges are rather prim about postprocessing. No HDR, no composites, contrast and sharpening only, etc. Not this one. This series is for people who think that at least half the fun begins once the image is in the computer, or, for you film holdouts, in the darkroom. Each Challenge in the Series will involve a specific mode of transformation, and the Rules will require that the transformation must extend or enhance the meaning of the original image.

Sometimes, the world just isn't put together right. Fortunately, photographers can fix it in post. Use any compositing technique to create a scene that doesn't exist in reality, but should.

HDR. Some folks seem to think it stands for Horrible Deformed Replulsive. Me, I like HDR. I like it when it broadens the dynamic range of a photo to give us a more realistic rendering of a scene as the human eye would perceive it. I also like it when it alters the texture of reality to give us a heightened experience of the image. I like HDR when it scratches my eyeballs.
