25 Stunning HDR Nature and Landscape Photographs
By Ecoist in Art & Design, Geography & Travel, Nature & Ecosystems
Nature photographers explore the relationship of art to the environment but also to our associations, sentimentality and technology – from the amazing natural beauty of landscapes to the terror of incredible land disasters. HDR and tone-mapping processes result in images that are at once surrealistic and hyper-realistic, natural and artificial, peaceful but vibrant. Some HDR photographs represent reality more clearly than any conventional photograph could, while others exaggerate the real to bring out color ranges broader than those we conventionally experience.
This concludes week one of a four-week four-elements series, starting with the most beautiful of natural landscapes to the most devastating of natural land disasters. Next week WebEcoist will feature three new articles revolving around water, from amazing water and ice formations to terrible water and ice disasters and compelling water and ice photography.
