"Two Goodyear Blimps float above the arena like the airships that often transmit live sporting events via television broadcast. Four air hostesses tend to each blimp. The only sound is soft ambient music, which suggests the hum of the engines. In the middle of each cabin interior sits a white-clothed table, its top decorated with an abstract centerpiece sculpted from Vaseline and surrounded by clusters of grapes. In one blimp the grapes are green, in the other they are purple."

>If you have ever photographed a high contrast scene, you know that even the best exposure will typically have blown out highlights and flat shadows. Photomatix offers two ways to solve this problem:

>-HDR Tone Mapping: Reveal highlight and shadow details in an HDR image created from multiple exposures.
>-Exposure Fusion: Merge differently exposed photographs into one image with increased dynamic range.

That sounds splendid but why do I find the results so unsettling?

Only a couple of years late on this OP. The problem is that the technique, once established, became quickly overused and abused by beginner photographers who have no concept of subtlety when it comes to processing, and thus you end up with all these unrealistic alien-world photos. When done properly, however, it is difficult to even tell if the shot is HDR - pic related.

This frog – or DFA 18, Triton (2001/7) to give it its proper title – is the creation of Brandon Ballengée, an environmental artist who says his work "attempts to blur the already ambiguous boundaries between environmental art and ecological research". Over the past six years he has been studying global species decline and he has become a field observer for the United States Geological Survey's North American Reporting Centre for Amphibian Malformation. Ballengée developed a chemical process that makes skin and other tissue transparent while leaving bones and cartilage stained with colours.

2098 Jossot
I happened upon a website hosting smallish scans of an early 20th century French anarchist art magazine called L'Assiette au beurre http://www.assietteaubeurre.org/. The art of Gustave-Henri Jossot (1866-1951) particularly stood out. He seems to have been an interesting character - starting out as an anarchist atheist in France and then moving to Tunisia and converting to Islam.

All the following pictures have captions. You can read them properly at the http://www.assietteaubeurre.org/ website. They were originally published 1901-1907.

>>1701 I once heard Brian Sewell define art as anything which is produced by someone who calls themselves an artist. The emperor is indeed naked but who are we to judge his fashion sense ?

Personally, I don't like any art where I can't see any sense of craft or craftman's skill. I don't think a concept is enough. You need to back it up with years spent perfecting your skill. This doesn't mean I don't like modern art, but I don't like things like "a pile of bricks" or "unmade bed" which I have the skills to produce myself, even though I didn't come up with the concept.

1909 interesting
Leonardo is thought to have used the golden ratio, a geometric proportion regarded as the key to creating aesthetically pleasing art, when painting the Mona Lisa. The Dutch painter Mondrian used it in his abstract compositions, as did Salvador Dali in his masterpiece The Sacrament of the Last Supper.

Now a US academic believes he has discovered the reason why it pleases the eye. According to Adrian Bejan, professor of mechanical engineering at Duke University, in Durham, North Carolina, the human eye is capable of interpreting an image featuring the golden ratio faster than any other.
