Nothing indicates the liberality,
prosperity or intelligence of a
nation more clearly than the
facilities which it affords for the
safe approach of the mariner to its shores.

The following 3 pictures are from Aurelio Torres who is a Photography Major at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh.  They are taken with a technique called HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photography. It a relatively new technique used to capture the range of light the human eye can perceive in any given scene. It's used to capture scenes that have a wider range of light than what your camera's sensor can capture in one shot.   You will see they are unique to say the least.  These look like drawings, but they are photographs.
The following pictures are from Loscar Numael Pérez Vélez who is a worldwide photographer.  They are taken with various techniques of exposure and filtering as well as HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photography.  You will see they are unique to say the least.  These look like drawings, but they are photographs.  Note his tremendous use of composition.
