She's light and airy with a delicate flavour. :D

This needs a full view to see the true effect.

Thanks to for letting me use his wonderful photo, Sunset over Strahan here --> [link] as a homemade HDRI file for this image.

Made with Poser --> Pose-Ray --> POV-Ray

It's a light source as well as an image that surrounds the scene and will reflect off any reflective surface. Lighter areas in an HDRI image will, obviously, create more light at those areas.

Wow, groovy effect.

Took me a moment to get the connection with Z's photo. You must have used that as a surround for the gold surface to reflect.

Hmmm... Admittedly I haven't studied the subject deeply, but I thought you needed several photos at different exposure levels to make one HDRI image.

Yeah, it's my own homemade, "on the cheap" version. I just make them with HDRShop. It serves its purpose. :shrug:

That last comment may be misleading. I know (or knew) a good deal about optics, I know there are three pigments (not counting night vision) each with its own sensitivity vs. wavelenth function, amounting to a three channel bandpass filter, and that simultaneous firing rates on the three channels make a 3-vector that maps to subjective color and brightness (ignoring neighborhood effects). I guess that's more than Joe Sixpack knows, but it doesn't tell me what I'm allowed to do with colors in software. Am I making any sense?

OK that satisfied my curiosity to some extent, thanks. I'd been wondering about some of that recently. Like, just how is color information stored in typical images, is it linear? (answer is no). If not I can't do things with images that I might expect to be able to do, like superimposing images by just adding or averaging the pixel values.

The mapping between RGB values and pulse rates in the three families of receptor in the (normal) human eye, and from that to subjective color/brightness is another dark (!) mystery to me. No doubt there are people who have figured all that out, and I need only find them on the web...

Anyway, I take it what HDRShop does for you is take a (say) .jpg file and raise each R or G or B value to the power 2.2, store it as a floating point number, save all that to a different file format and give it back to you. Is that about right? Is it just me, or do a lot of people have a lot of trouble saying what they mean that succinctly?
