digital Photography School: HDR Photography – What Do You Think About It?

Great article from digital Photography School about HDR photography:

Hdr-Image

There are numerous discussion on HOW to make HDR images in our forums but one recurring discussion that I’m seeing around the web is over whether it’s a form of photography that people like. Some people love the effect and others hate it. Some say it’s not ‘pure’ photography others ask what pure photography really is? Some call it ‘fake’ and others see it as a thing of beauty.

I thought it’d make an interesting discussion. Do you like HDR images? What do you like or dislike about them?

Base64 Valid Character Set

I found this on a forum post, and just wanted to verify that this information is correct:

for base64 the valid charset is:
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwx yz0123456789+/
the = is used as filler for the last bytes, as the length must be mulitple
of 3

(via thescripts.com/forum)

The charset looks reasonable, but must the length be a multiple of 3? (Seems like a multiple of 4 would make more sense.)

Comments very much appreciated!
