A Meeting

by AxelLuther

Once A year there is a development kick-off meeting in my company. As we have many developers, many people get invited and many come - that's why we need a really big meeting room
You might be surprised, that this is not an HDR - I made it also as HDR but found the straight version better. However - I had to play a bit with the big monitors - they were shining white, so I copied them out of an underexposed picture and lipped them into this one (is this then a "kind of" HDR ?????)
It's a bit a shame how much the oicture looses quality and sharpness after upload compared to the original size - would be great if there is a way to present pics in at least 2000 pixel width without additional compression)

I like it. It looks like to be inside the arena!!!

Looks like one of Steve Jobs'(God to his followers!) presentations! Has worked out well for a four second exposure, and some manipulation.
You're right about the loss of quality during upload; both light and sharpness seem to suffer.

At first sight I thought same as Paul and I thought that it was taken on the premier of the iPad2.
You attained the manual HDR successfully. Perfect colours and details. Well done.
I have to agree with you in the decrease of the quality after the uploading. I noticed that in the case of my pictures, too.

So it's a bit like going to a rock concert, except boring. Really well captured.
