Impressions of Paris

HDR Spotting invites still going out

I understand invites are still going out on This was started with the simple idea that we can all increase the amount of attention for other HDR Photographers and drive traffic to their respective sites. The site always has new content on it, and more improvements come every week. For some of the best, see the Editor’s Picks!

Jason St. Peter from sent in this nice testimonial:

“I think HDRspotting has been a tremendous success and I am lucky to be part of it. It’s so cool to see so many great hdr artist in one spot. Being affiliated with hdr spotting and the stuck in customs brand has also helped drive much more visibility to my own blog. HDR Spotting quickly became my top referring site behind google and my top 10 images have over 35,000 views on the HDRspotting site. This is awesome in such a short time.”

Fan Page on Facebook

We made a few updates to the Fan Page on Facebook.  A new landing page and more FBML stuff on the way.  If any of you are FBML experts, drop me a note – I’d like to add some cool stuff to it!

Daily Photo – Impressions of Paris

I had a nice conversation with a friend this evening about the Impressionists of Paris and all they had to go through to get their work seen. The old-guard painters than headed the selection committee for the Salon of the late 19th century had a distaste for the Impressionists, and their work was continually rejected. I feel lucky that we all live at a time where our own impressions of the world can freely be shared. I hope sites such as HDRspotting can help everyone get their work better exposed to the world.

Impressions of Modern Paris

  • Trey, the link to to Jason St. Peter’s website is malfunctioning (needs a quick fix).

    As far as the photo: is that from the famous Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris? I was there this summer, but of course, it wasn’t illuminated in the same way…

    Finally, can someone please send me an invite to HDRSpotting? I can’t seem to figure out how the invites are being handed out, even though I’ve emailed the editor and followed on Twitter…

  • Thank you so much for creating HDR Spotting! I’m having a great time uploading my photos and looking at some of the best HDR photography in the world. You’re right, we are lucky to be living in a time where we can share our work so freely!

  • Beautiful Christmas scene in many cities these days look spectacular.

  • Beautiful scene. It makes me want to put my lights up.

  • Wow…the talent displayed on HDR Spotting is just incredible!! Trey, can you explain to us how to get an invite to submit photos? What an honor it would be to have a photo displayed amongst those fantastic photographs!! I would certainly like a crack at it…

    The HDRSpotting seems like a brilliant idea, I do like visiting it every so often and seeing some of the amazing photos on there… I think I’ll have to find myself an invite code to get submitting 😛

    I like how today’s photo with the light really well, although night-time, the wet pavements are great for reflecting those different colours – really nice. Reminds me of when went to London about this time last year and it was all lit up like that near the London Eye; got some nice shots not too disimilar to this.

  • Very nice image!

    I really like the HDR Spotting site. Is there a way to contribute or to get an invitation code?

  • Looks great!
