My photo on the Bing home page today!
« on: July 06, 2013, 03:47:39 AM »
Bing used one of my images for today's homepage.  Kind of cool that so many people have the opportunity to see it.  You can see it at http://www.bing.com.  If you are reading this any later than 7/6, then you'll need to scroll back a few days.

Here is the original.

This is awesome! The first image is really cool, I don't like the second one as much because the HDR didn't go so well there and the sky is simply too small. However, congrats man.

How can your image get used by bing - do you have to apply or something? Just curious.

Don't be sad if your post doesn't create a lot of response here - this is a gearhead forum not a photography forum.

Very cool, creative compositions.  Definitely a situation where HDR is called for, if you can pull it off.  Do you recall how you achieved the top-most one? I would guess a simple exposure fusion of two or three images.

Excellent work. I personally prefer the first one
I'm also curious about the details of how you created these images.

Did they pay you? Or are they profiting off of you at no cost?

this was my first thought. did they ask before using your image or did you submit it to them?

if not....having an image stolen is cause for excitement and congratulations? can you please clarify how this came about.

just what i was going to ask.

   i also prefer the second shot and i think it's certainly cool your shot made it to the Bing(whatever that is, i use google  ;) ) home page.
