Bonkers, pictured, is a local watering hole in my Hintonburg neighbourhood.
I posted this photo on Flickr yesterday, and this is a suggested crop of that image (thank you for your input folks!). The nice thing about this shot, for me, is that it was something I had pre-envisioned. I knew I wanted to take another HDR of a local establishment (a previous photo can be seen here), and I knew that, on it’s own, Bonkers seemed a little plain. I knew that if I waited for the rain, for a wet street, that the reflection would stand out, and I could really pop the colours.
I actually grabbed this image with my G11 point and shoot – I’ve had so many great opportunities with this camera – on my way out and was able to brace myself against a wall to snag this image (3 exposures -2,0,+2 EV). I normally don’t recommend hand-held HDR’s though – like most images you want sharp with lots of detail they can really suffer with the slightest shift.
