There's an exhibition of photographs of Captain Scott's ill fated Antarctic expedition running at the Chris Beetles Fine Photographs Gallery in London.

Taken by Scott's expedition camera artist - Herbert Ponting - it's a collection of some 60 breathtaking photographs. This is well worth a visit if you're in London, and even if you're not, you can still grab a look on the gallery website.


 
HDR, or High Dynamic Range, is also known as HDRI (High Dynamic Range Imaging). It is basically a single image created from the combination of a minimum of three different shots of the same scene taken at different exposures: correctly exposed, overexposed and underexposed. The resulting image will have a higher number of bits per colour channel compared to normal photos.
 
I stumbled across a tutorial recently on how to produce those excellent reflections through water drops. Yuval Vaknin takes you through the process of macro photography using glycerin drops.
