  • MILKY WAY OVER CARMA RADIOTELESCOPE SITE

    The Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-wave Astronomy (CARMA) is an astronomical instrument comprising 23 radio telescopes. These telescopes form an astronomical interferometer where all the signals are combined in a purpose-built computer (a correlator) to produce high-resolution astronomical images.

  • MOBIUS ARCH OVER MT WHITNEY HDR

    This HDR photograph was taken in the Arizona Hills in California. Many a western was filmed in these here parts due to its close proximity to LA (where all of the stars hang out). This is called Mobus Arch and if you set up at just the right angle, you can capture Mt. Whitney beneath the arch. And I did.

  • SEDONA RED ROCKS AND TREE HDR

    This is an HDR photograph of a very typical scene in Sedona. Everywhere you turn, there is another gorgeous scene. The HDR effect can be seen in the sky and the colours.

  • AGAVE-HDR

    This is an HDR of a very sharp Agave plant found in the mountains of Sedona, Arizona. I may still have the scar on my leg to prove it.

  • CLASSIC SEDONA

    I call this Classic Sedona because everywhere you look in Sedona, there are amazing mountains like this which are augmented by the blue skies and the shapley clouds. This is NOT an HDR.

  • BURANO SIDE STREET

    One of my all time favorite photographs, many people mistake this for a painting. This heavy-handed use of HDR creates a colorful and surreal look with the reflections in the canal. This photograph is set in Burano Italy, an island just northeast of Venice. Notice that the dropcloth in the boat on the right has many of the colours of the brightly-colored buildings.

  • VENICE GRAND CANAL AT DUSK

    VENICE GRAND CANAL AT DUSK was photographed by David H Brooks, on a recent (May 30, 2012) trip to Venice, Italy. The photograph highlights the Accademia Vaporetto Stop and a recently departed vaporetto. In order to capture the true colours of the sunset and the buildings in the same image, seven different exposures were taken and the HDR (High Dynamic Range) post-processing method was employed. The equipment used included a Nikon D4 camera with a 24 to 70 mm f2.8 Nikkor lens, hand-held. The exposures ranged from 1/10th to 1/800th of a second at f 4.0 and ISO 2000. —DavidHBrooks+Photography

  • FLORENCE 10K

    Can you guess what's going on here?

  • DUOMO ORVIETO

    The photograph was taken with the HDR process which helped to bring out the details of the edifice. The Cathedral of Orvieto is a large 14th century Roman Catholic cathedral situated in the town of Orvieto in Umbria, central Italy. The building was constructed under the orders of Pope Urban IV.

  • BIRD IN FLIGHT

    We heard the birds rustling and patiently waited for one to cross overhead. The shot was in the ruins on the island of Sirmione, Lake Gardia, Italy.

  • WESTERN FACE OF VESUVIUS

    Shot at sunrise from Naples

  • Peek-A-Boo Bear

    Estimated at about four years old, this little guy at one point stood between me and the rest of my camera equipment--just curious, I guess.

  • MY PHOTO ASSISTANT

    Please notice my big camera resting on top of my backpack. Along with my 600mm telephoto, waiting for a camera body to attach to. Fortunately I had that body and a small lens around my neck, so that i could capture this and several other images of my adolescent bear friend and assistant.
