  1. Hi,
    First time I listened to your podcast (due to me getting a trackback for the “17 of the Most Beautiful HDR images”) and I have to say I enjoyed it, some very interesting topics

    And in reply to what you said about that post…
    It was a collaboration of HDR images from Flickr and other sources so i’m not completely sure if any have been photoshopped or not, it might say in the description on the source…

    Anyway I will be listening to your next podcast 😀


  2. Thanks for that info Steve.
    I have been meaning to get to your list for a while and it’s great to see you are doing some research on the HDR phenomenon.
    Thanks for the clarification, some did look very “Photomatix” to me.
    Hope to hear from you again and glad to hear you will come back for the next podcast.
