HDR Spotting – Gallery of HDR Photos

hdr photo community

For all the HDR photographers out there, HDR Spotting offers great opportunity to show off your tremendous skills. HDR Spotting is a showcase of photos and photographers. I am truly amazed at the images produced from this relatively new photographic process. Read below for more information…

How does HDR Spotting work?

HDR Spotting is designed to be a next-generation gallery for an emerging group of photographers. This site was started because we saw an intense desire on behalf of HDR Photographers to get their work noticed and to drive more traffic to their sites.

Our mission is to create an environment that allows HDR Photographers to share their best work and drive people to their respective websites.

People can share their HDR work on Flickr and Facebook, but, frankly, those are lacking in many ways. We are designing HDR Spotting to:

- Make it easy and beautiful to scan many HDR Photos at once
- Provide an environment that encourages readers to go visit the blogs, portfolios, etc of the photographers that contribute
- A fun community that can be focused and provide feedback via views and comments

HDR Spotting is a basic free service. The site generates income from advertising, which we want to make as unobtrusive and pertinent as possible.

Contributing is easy! Simply enter your information. You maintain the rights to everything… If your photo is good enough, people will click on it to find out more and maybe jump right over to your blog, portfolio, or wherever you wish.

Stuck In Customs Trey Ratcliff

afternoon near ground zero new york city

I’m best known for, well, I suppose, this site, StuckInCustoms.com, which has become the #1 Travel Photography Blog on the internet with around 350,000 visits per month including one from my mom. I’m also one of those Flickr dudes; my photos recently passed over 19 million views. My work first became popular after I had the honor of having the first HDR photo ever to hang in the Smithsonian. After that, I was fortunate enough to be represented by Getty, been featured on the BBC and various other shows, and have had numerous showings around the world.

I am known generally for my interpretation of HDR photography, for which I have an HDR Tutorial right here. I grew up blind in one eye and this might have changed the way I view the world. I don’t know. It’s hard to be objective about the way one’s brain was wired. My background is in computer science and math, so I bring an algorithm-like process to capturing the scene in such a way that it evokes memories in a palpable manner.

My promise to you: one photo every day. This is very hard… to produce 365 photos that I think are worthy every year. I will probably break this promise about 10 times during the year, so it’s really not much of a promise…stuck in customs trey ratcliff
