Children Play, They Don't Take Notes. Adults Take Notes and Don't Play as Much as They Should

I hope you are now convinced that there is more to dynamic range than just bracketing your exposures. I also hope that you have found that there is a much bigger high to be had by exploring and exploiting the power and subtlety of image harvesting for the purpose of extending the dynamic range of all aspects of an image. You have also had a master class in directing the viewer's unconscious eye.

I believe that once you understand how to control color, you will have complete mastery of the images that you create. I also believe that you have to learn the rules before you can effectively break them. But if you make all of this a game, the playfulness and spontaneity that you bring to the process will be inherent in the image. It is from this sort of spontaneity that the truth of your experience will be captured.
