Every Morning i get up and head to work around when the Sun is comming up, i get to see this almost every morning.
Stunning photo... worth getting up for work
Wow! I LOVE this shot!! Great work! And, no fair - it's always still dark out when I get to work!
Wow that looks so cool, i would so get up early each morning to see that. Great job look forward to seeing more from you.
very nice shot...but more art than an actual HDR photo imo. An HDR photo should look like a REAL window into that particular scene. The clouds are very unnatural. Not to say it is a bad shot or doesn't look cool. Just over done with the effects.
You don't "see" this every morning, unless it's your job to sit at a computer monitor and horrifically edit every photo you take. What you see is a dramatically less exciting version of this, that you photographed, blended, and photoshopped the living bej
This is pretty horrible. Those clouds look terrible- i've never seen clouds like that in my life. HD can be impressive, but not when the only reason it looks good is because someone tore it apart in photoshop...post the original.
Where is this? I'm dying to know. Who needs to live in places like California and Hawaii to find beauty? It seems to me that you've got your own piece of undiscovered paradise right here.
A terrific example of how NOT to use HDR.
The problem with HDR'ing digital photos is that it's so over-done---they no longer look real.
Cool, great foto! <a href="http://weinort-kesten.de"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3493/3467894714_f97159f12b_m.jpg" /></a>
Brilliant photo! Where is this btw?
Aww thats cool
what a pack of bitches who cares so much the ARTIST (Eric) who did it liked it
Wow just look at God's handiwork...amazing...
Muy buena, espero tener algo parecido en mi lente para disfrutala.
Very good, I hope to have something seemed in my lens for enjoys it.
All you "photoshopped!" and negative nellys out there should spend a little more time getting outdoors instead of holed up behind your goddamn monitors. I have personally seen skies like this in the morning several times, and even if this person did do a
I agree with your comments notnegative. This is a "nice" image. But I have noticed that is has gathered almost 300 votes in less than 3 days. Could it be that someone's doing a little padding? I think so.
As a photo this looks ridiculous. It looks completely like a computer generated image!!
Nice dawn; but the photo has been messed with, colours enhanced, which I don't like. I see a similar dawn in Alberta.
You wouldn't have black clouds - I think that the natural world should be captured in a photograph, not coloured in with crayons.
love the colors stunning.....
My dad does the same horrible thing to pictures he takes. I wish I could revoke his photoshop rights.
I liked the photo before I read the caption. So you trip on acid every time you step outside before work? This is overly photoshoped, and it does look cool, but don't make it sound like this is how the sky REALLY looked, and that you live in some magica
come to sweden. there is still fresh air overhere. Sunrises and sunsets like this is not at all uncommon. The only think he did on this "light version of" HDR is to expose the buildings to be viewable and not just black shadows.
Yes it looks a bit unnat
Everyone is complaining those clouds aren't real. We actually get clouds like that around here where I am from too(washington). We had them recently during sunset and had a large red sky. it was beautiful
A wonderful image..
I didnt bother reading all of the other comments but I hope that everyone noticed that this is a photo of a sunrise where the sun is supposed to be below the clouds.... creating the reddish coloring in the sky. However the bottom of the clouds are dark wh
This is so FAKE.
Why do people who use so much HDR and Photoshop always like to make claims about the beauty of Nature?
FAKE FAKE FAKE
You do know your on an HDR website right. High Dynamic Range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range of luminances between light and dark areas of a scene than normal digital imaging techniques. I think the Pi
Yesterday, I made comment on this "nice" image, as the voter count was approaching 300. It is now closing in on 500. And this is the only image on the entire site with that kind of "amazing" appeal. Check it out, if you don't think so. It was posted 4 day
Great work, love the early morning sunrise, you have the eye for great photos, you have talent keep up the good work
Wunderbares Bild, ich liebe die Farbe und Textur des Schusses, es nimmt ein wahres Foto-Auge, um Dinge in der Natur zu sehen.
ahhh stumble upon...
I have seen sunrises like that, but each time I forget to take a picture, and when I return to get the camera, the sky returns to normal....And I still have to go to school. :(
Well, I like it, Photoshopped or not. It's certainly as real as any of the whining "oooh, it's been photoshopped" brigade.
a green lawn always adds nicely to the effect. thumbs up from a stumbler.
Well, I don't care how tweaked it's been, I think it's brilliant. We get clouds like that in this part of England too
The contrast and saturation should be bumped down a some, looks a little too unrealistic.
Beautiful,just beautiful and thoughtful for you to share.
Everyone complaining about this being too photoshopped should get the hell off this site.. HELLO the site name says HDR
wow I never saw someting like this.Beautiful
Photoshopped? Probably. I can really appreciate the beauty that Eric was trying to convey. A photograph sometimes doesn't do the scene justice. Eric says he sees it this way. Maybe he does. Who are we to say. Some of you are just snobbish in your com
Hey morons that don't know why the rating is going up. This page is listed on StumbleUpon so alot of viewers are going to see it. Maybe if you morons had half of a brain you'd comprehend things like this. Do you even know what stumbleupon is or what type
95% of you people are complete morons... Let's start with those of you bitching about the image being "fake"... this is a website dedicated to HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography. HDR is a method for taking multiple exposures of the same photo and digi
Terrible..Way too much photoshop work.. Would be interesting to see the original to see how much of it has been edited
dont believe it.... Caitlin Ryan says its photo shopped.... they dont have a major but she is studying photography.... but the bottom line is that this image is fake!!!!!!!!
Well now. Let's see what the score is. In a week's time this image has collected almost 700 votes. Not bad if you're from Louisiana, huh? We've heard nothing from the webmaster of this site, but we've had a couple posters call us morons . . . and this Stu
I personaly know the photographer and he was not the one to put the photo on the stumble websit. He even emailed this website to see what was going on. He is also new to HDR so before everyone starts saying horrible things to him, maybe you should get the
BS, ( er, beautiful sunrise) If you personally know "Big Daddy" and don't think he posted this photo on StumbleUpon, then why does he go to the trouble to promote the image, that he does? How many people you know have a person carricature on line? And pro
I Created "Sunrise Before work" It is a real picture, i took 3 pictures Auto Bracket at Diff Exposures and combined them. Then used an HDR program to enhance the Sky & Grass Color's. I didn't add anything or subtract anything that wasn't there already. So
Ah Eric, could it be you're suffering a little buyer's remorse from this little "drive-by" posting? For the legitimate posters to this site, your explanation of HDR is a little redundant. Could it be that you're trying to prove your expertise? Here's a mo
Dear "Tu Fascht" why such personal attacks, my intentions was to share a Photo that i liked with others. I did not try to do any Wrong doing. I have posted 2 other pic's on this site. I have email the webmaster right after your first post on 4-23-09 to ta
Personal attacks, Eric? Hardly. Just stating the facts. If you will kindly reread my previous posts, I think you'll agree. BTW, it would be appreciated, if you would post the URLs of those "other" images you said you posted here. That way we can all share
HDR at it's best
estanus, I strongly disagree. This is NOT HDR at it's best. Look at the "Original" view of the image. You'll immediately see a large amount of grain in the sky. This is a result of over processing, and/or a poor quality shot to begin with. Stuffing the vo
Tu Fascht - Do you have nothing better to do then to go to this picture and leave Negative comments everyday. I notice your 2 times as many as others, I think the picture looks good so what if the Photographer went a little over he liked it enough to shar
Bloody yea, you apparently haven't comprehended the gist of my comments. Yes they are mostly negative â€“â€“â€“â€“â€“â€“â€“ to the extent that the vast majority of votes for this image are a result of "stuffing the box", by using a site whose only purpose
that's fucking gorgeous!
Tu Fascht, i suggest you start posting comments under the name "i'm a cock who doesn't have a life outside of this computer screen"! And then, when you eventually get down from that huge pedestal you're on you can join the rest of us and just enjoy the im
Ah Matthew, as I track the spectacular popularity of this "nice" image, I have noted your posts of Devon area images as well. I must say that some are quite good and some of them are quite mediocre, but at least, you are a prolific contributor to this sit
Tu Fascht, i'm honoured that you have taken 5 minutes out of your obviously very busy day of scouring the web to find holes in which to dump your opinions. So what if Eric has done a little advertising along the way in order to get ome feedback on an imag
Amazing how much attention this Picture got in less then a month. Sure do have allot of 5hit stirring going on. That "Tu Fascht" guy seems to have nothing better to do then to bash this particular picture. Funny how his comments are so highly rated maybe
jenna13, maybe Tu is doing the job the web admin. should. I don't think Tu is bashing the pic as much as the method it got so popular, so quick. Its a good shot, but I voted for Tu's efforts. If one shot gets to a site like StubleUpon, shouldn't all get t
Very unnatural. HDR should be used to make parts that would otherwise be over- or underexposed visible.
Its not the Photographer's Fault that someone posted this picture with stumbleupon. That this is the first pic everyone see's before they understand what HDR is. HDR is in the Eye of the Beholder, and Eric see's this and likes it. That should be enough
Jenna if you think it's not the photographer's fault for the photo not being posted on Stumble, then who else would have access to his shot? Personally I think the BS is getting kind of deep around here. BWTFDIK?
this is a really very very nice picture
Well, Matthew, while I've been away, I see where you not only responded to my post in a very predictable, juvenile manner, but have posted images of your own. I must say they were, in the main, decent images. *********** HOWEVER, it would appear your adu
Tu Fascht, Tu Fascht, Tu Fascht........ How much time am i going to waste replying to your remarkably eloquent, 'witty' remarks. Well the answer is about another 2 minutes. I'm done with you. I would, however, just like to point out that the majority of p
And thank you Matthew, for your somewhat civilized comment. WRT when will I start posting and make relevant comments. I've done both in the past, and have found that the use of a pseudonym was, and is, quite appropriate (re:, the dialogue between you and
WOW! There are really no words that I can put here to say how beautiful and breathtaking this photo is. It is fantastic...
The clouds are surreal.
Well done and thanks for sharing!
AWESOME ! It's just how I feel EVERY morning that I awake to on my own by myself !
