    Ring flash came in. You will have to excuse my mug, as I am the only willing model I have at the moment, and this was during the disaster that was called a hockey game last night:

    You SEXY BITCH, you!

    Looks like a head-shot for a stint as Saturday Night Live host...

    As for the single shot HDR, in this case it was just one shot, taken in RAW, exposed for the wall. I exported it from Lightroom to Photoshop 3 times, one at -2 stops for the highlights (and you can see where it clips where the florescent tubes all of a sudden just go to white), one at the as shot expose, and one pushed 2 stops for the shadows. I layered them all up in Photoshop with the shadows (the one that was pushed to show the dark areas) at the bottom with no mask, the proper exposure in the middle with a white mask (so the whole layer is showing and now you can't see any of the shadow layer), and the highlights on top with a black mask (so now you can't see it and the as shot exposure layer shows through, you can hold down alt while clicking the new layer mask button to get a black mask). Then I selected the highlights layer mask in the layer dialog, and with a white paintbrush painted the area of the tubes to reveal them, then selected the as shot layer mask, and with a black brush painted the dark shadow areas where I wanted to see more detail.

    Ahh. I sort of guessed that.

    Everyone is going to be responsible for their own hosting. The Challenge thread (which will be posted here later today) will be the only place to showcase the images for the Challenge.

    Sounds good. Question, FBJ... Where is a good site to host a photo so that you can thumbnail it to the thread but then people can view the full-size image if they like?

    I tried to send you the full-size image of the lake picture via PM but I think the link only works for me because it's my image. Did the link work for you?

    Yah. It worked.

    Any picture-hosting site can be hotlinked to. I use my own web-server, but Flickr accounts can do this if image permissions are set up properly.
