  1. I think it’s fair to say that most people don’t know what Obama stands for. Of course, they don’t know what McCain stands for. Or Bush, 8 years in. Most Americans have no clue what is going on around them or what their leaders and candidates actually say on policy matters. (According the latest Pew study, half of AMericans are unaware that the Dems control Congress, and a huge number aren’t sure who that Condi Rice person is).
    We are, as a nation, pretty stupid about these things.
    Anyone who doesn’t know very specifically what policies Obama and McCain are advocating is simply either too lazy or stupid to find out, because the information is all there. So whenever I hear the “Obama is all talk and no specifics” complaint, I take it as a good indication that the person making is an ignoramus.
    It was a brillliantly-done speech.

  2. Nice HDR – It’s a great tool, but I really hate the over-processed ones. How many original shots did you use? Did you use Photomatix, or some other program for tone-mapping?

  3. Hi Glenn —
    You guessed it — I used Photomatix (I finally broke down and licensed the trial version). This was just 3 images, with 4 EV steps between them.
    I’m with you — I’ve seen quite a few radically overdone HDRs, and they don’t appeal to me at all.
