Some HDR photographs from a recent travel to Sevilla, Spain.
The pictures were taken at the “Casa de Pilates” a fantastic example of Mudejar architecture in Spain. Build by the Marques de Tarifa during the 15th and 16th centuries its got his name from erroneously thinking it would be a copy of Pontius Pilate’s villa.
Parts of the palace are still home to the Duchess of Medinacelli and her family.

There was a lot of press coverage lately on the “Earthrace” attempt to break the world record of circumnavigation for power boats with a bio-diesel boat.
It happens to be that we have (together with another company) sponsored their last leg on their attempt to break the world record. And we have just learn that “Richard Branson” now is considering to “sponsor another attempt” for the world record next year, so we thought we might still share some of our impressions and images of our time on-board during the run from Egypt to Spain…
We recently mentioned that one of us will soon be going on a long travel around this planet so we got a professional digital camera to capture some of the impressions and share them later.
During the research for the latest in Digital Photography we also came across what is now called High-Dynamic-Range (HDR or HDRI) photography and tone mapping.
There are a few pretty good tutorials on the web how to achieve these effects and software is now also available to substantially reduce the process steps required (If interested we can provide a list of the best links we found).
But we thought that it might be best to introduce this technique by pointing you to the best HDR images and their creators we found on the web.
So following this post we will put together a small series of articles for each of the web sites we found the most interesting…
