Daily Deviation

Given 2010-12-01
Kicking off December in style, I bring to you something that blew my mind - HDR in horror photography is a tricky thing, and pulling it off so well is another. Consider the blurry hands as moving reindeer, the blood splatters as Santa, and the hospital curtains as your chimney, and enjoy as I bring to you some Yuletide greetings in the form of 'psychotic'.
