Travelled with the family to Baguio, about 250km from Manila. Took the morning off to do some rides.

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:


Yes, you can fake it with many programs, but it still doesn't look like a "real" HDR photo that uses multiple exposures of the same image.

From the quality of the photos you've posted in this thread, you simply don't need to worry about it :)

Great shots, especially the one with Fast Freddie. Last time I rode with a group containing a pro (someone from Kenda/5-hour Energy), I got dropped like a bad habit on the first hill...

Yeah, racing domestically for a last season. Didn't catch what team. Might not have anything nailed down yet. Then he is apparently going to focus on his clothing business, Gran Fondo, a juniors team and whatnot.

And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

Finally back at my hotel - that little smudge you can see in the distance off my sh**ty camera phone- after two interminable months on Safari and on the Beach in Kenya. Glad to get back on a bike...and into the 18 degree cool of a Mallorquin winter
