Great friend and photographer Roman Kurywzcack  and I are pleased to announce a free HDR photography contest.  We are looking for your one best and most creative image using any software to convert your HDR image and you can also use additional software to further refine the image.  Anything goes!!!  The image can be natural to over the top.

The image at the top will give you one idea of what we will be looking for.  I used Unified Color’s HDR Express to convert the HDR image.   You can find more HDR examples by doing an HDR search here on my blog.  During the final judging, we will be looking for images with not only the best HDR processing but also images where the makers applied some creativity to further enhance the final image.  Remember that this is open to any subject!  The top 3 winners will be announced by us, on our blogs, on April 13th.

If you don’t have HDR software you can download Unified Color Technologies HDR Express for a free 30 day trial.  It has full functionality on the trial version.  If you decide to purchase the software, don’t forget to use the code SDCPHOTOGRAPHY to receive a discount.  I do not receive compensation for promoting this product but have opted instead to offer you a better discount when using the promotional code, simply because I love the product.

The first place prize is being provided by Roamin’ with Roman Photo Tours and SDC Photography.  The winner gets to choose either the ½ day HDR Gillette Castle workshop on April 14th in East Haddam, CT, the ½ day Macro workshop on May 20th in Kennett Square, PA, or a ½ day High Speed Water Drop workshop on November 17th in Secaucus, NJ.  Prize is valued at $150 – $195.

The 2nd place prize is a Think Tank bag provided by Gary Farber of Hunt’s Photo and Video valued at $100

The 3rd place winner will receive a copy of Unified Color Technologies HDR Express valued at $100.

All entries must be e-mailed to me by midnight, March 31st.

Good luck to all who participate!
