The Olympic cauldron at Canada Place in Vancouver. We got lucky today and managed to be downtown on a day where it didn’t rain! This is a HDR photograph which was created using Photomatix Pro and is a combination of 3 bracketed exposure images. I chose this method to try and retain some detail in the flames (highlight) and not lose detailss in the shadows.
Here’s the original “normal” exposure as a comparison.
Okay, I didn’t take this picture but it’s something that doesn’t happen every day. My school was the only school in the Greater Vancouver Area to have members of the RCMP musical ride visit their school! They are here for the Olympics and are performing every day at Holland Park in Surrey.
