25 Chilling HDR Water, Snow and Ice Photos
By Ecoist in Animals & Habitats, Geography & Travel, Nature & Ecosystems
Photographing water and ice presents unique challenges but also incredible opportunities to show off the myriad properties of water in its many forms – the reflectivity of pools, the transparency of ice, amazing color ranges and other curiously variable properties. From the amazing beauty of water phenomena and formations to the chilling reality of water disasters, the use of HDR and/or tone-mapping brings a surrealistic element into play that can transform the look and feel of an ordinary waterscape in a variety of ways.
This concludes week two of a four-week four-elements series, starting with the most beautiful of natural water phenomena and formations to the most devastating of natural water disasters. Next week WebEcoist will feature three new articles revolving around air, from amazing air and cloud formations to terrible air and wind disasters and compelling air photography.
