Color Cast

I know it's not very original, but I could't decide originally which one to post, so I decided to post both. I'll try to answer Michael's question from the previous post. This is known as an HDR (high dynamic range) image. I took a couple pictures at different exposures to help capture the different range of shadows and colors cast on the blinds. I used software called photomatix to help combine the photos. The reason for this is to try to reproduce more realistically what the eye sees. I did this effect once before with this sunset picture only I used photoshop to blend the three photos together.

Old Louisville Sunset

This picture is actually three photos of the same scene exposed at different shutter speeds (1/200sec, 1/50sec, 1/13sec) and combined into one picture using photoshop masking. The reason for doing this is because of the difference in lighting between the background(sunset) and the foreground(building). The 1/200sec exposure was used to capture the sunset, but in doing this the building is underexposed. The 1/13sec exposure was used to capture the building, but in doing this the sky is overexposed. And finally the 1/50sec exposure was there for blending purposes. The final result is this, something that looks more like what you can see with your eye.
