Yep, -16 in Latvia too, but I managed 45Km. Could probably manage 55Km before I would actually die.
No pictures outside, as my fingers were frosted solid, but I made picture few minutes after I was indoors and able to move my finger to take a picture.

Whole face was white and frosted, no snow outside tho.

Not actually on the road... but on the Velodrome.

A few pictures from yesterday...the rest will be on the blog shortly.

The nice thing about winter around here is that I can get better photos. During the summer, everything pretty much looks the same--a tunnel of trees.

Definitely nice pics xrs2! What post-processing are you doing on the images? I get a similar effect during post-processing with a copied, blurred layer with a lowered opacity so that the background layer still shows through. It certainly gives the images great atmosphere! If you're not doing manual post-processing, I'm curious what setting or filter you're using to give you the atmospheric effect?

I'm doing exposure bracketing with 3 images, -0.7, 0, and +0.7 EV, and then I combine the 3 images to make a true HDR photo in Photomatix. No further manipulation except I usually have to reduce the intensity of the reds and oranges. I don't know why but my camera makes red and orange unnaturally prominent.

HDR photos are best when you use a tripod, that way there's no shift from one image to the next. However, I of course don't carry a tripod with me.

I can assure you anyone can do it...I am a very long ways from a professional photographer, but I am trying to get better.

HDR:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_dynamic_range_imaging

There are filters (and scripts) in Photoshop that can fake this effect to varying degrees.
There are even software apps specific to this...
And the iPhone 5 can replicate HDR effects "built in" with each image taken, on the spot.

But, in the end, it's the subject matter which makes an HDR photo work. :thumbup:
