Natural Disasters and Extreme Storms

Like to see some pictures of Jeeps battling the elements in natural disasters. Snow storms, floods, tornado's, hurricanes, land slides, earthquakes, etc. Lets see what you've got. Any Jeep can play.

I'd have a bunch from back during Katrina with my XJ but we didn't have power for a month so I couldn't charge my camera haha. Oh well.

Edit: This is from the quick brush we had with a tropical storm last month

We are supposed to get 14" of snow here in the next 24 hours. Maybe I can come up with something for you guys.

its basically cranking the contrast up all the way on a picture and making it look drawn, its a pretty popular photoshop these days...

High Dynamic Range.

To properly shoot HDR you need a tripod and you take 3 pictures, 1 at a proper shutter and F stop, 1 a step up so it's over exposed, and 1 a step down so it's under exposed. You then layer the threee images and adjust the contrasts and brightness so that detail is shown everywhere, even in the shadows. Proper HDR shots are amazing.

While Monster's is a neat photo, using an HDR effect simply changes contrast and brightness in one photo leaving out the quality details, which comprise a true HDR image.

Here's an example of a proper HDR shot.

THANK YOU. HRD can be done properly but soo very rarely is. This image you posted still maintains proper highlight and shadow values, keeping it from looking so muddy like is usual. I try not to say anything usually, but I facepalm a lot looking at Jeep HDRs. I can't help it, I'm a pro photographer and it just hurts me inside a little each time.

That is awesome! I love the ultra wide angle, those environmental portraits and perspective distortion just look so cool.

HRD? Im not tryin to be a jerk but its kinda funny. I agree with you though, (Im just a hobbyist) but I see people go crazy with the effect and not tweak any contrast levels and it almost seems like if you stare at it you will have a seizure! This threads getting off topic pretty quick...
