My first HDR

HDR means High Dynamic Range imaging. It works by combining 3 picture in different exposure into 1. For more info on HDR you can read at wikipedia here. There are tons of HDR processing software around the internet and the one i'm using is Photomatix as my HDR processing.

Below is my first HDR, picture below is the original picture before HDR processing is done.

As you can see the picture i took is kinda dull, plain and out of contrast. Its a noob photography by me. Using Adobe Photoshop to recreate 3 different exposure which is 1 over expose, 1 below expose and another is normal exposure and combine all the 3 picture using Photomatix to create a HDR image as below.

YEAH! processing is done and image above the HDR picture. You can see the picture is like animated which i purposely do and we can see a more detail texture on the Rhino skin. A fail picture become an increadible photo for collection. I will post more HDR picture when i have the time to do

Penang Bird Park @ Seberang Jaya

Penang Bird Park is establish since 1988 and it was the first and largest bird park across Malaysia. Since it located not in the Penang island rather then in mainland, not much people visits the park  because of it's location. Consists of over 300 species of birds from all over the world.

Ok enough of the introduction, i've visit the bird park in 1st Feb 2010 and it's my first AND i'm from Penang itself. The bad part of the this bird park was most of the birds is inside a cage, so taking picture of them is kinda hard. Anyway, enjoy all the picture i've took during my visit's there.

Taiping Zoo @ Taiping Perak

30th Jan is Public Holiday for Malaysian to celebrate Thaipusam. But on this day i was in Taiping Perak to visit Taiping Zoo therefore there is actually no photo taken from me for the Thaipusam festival.
