With my love and interest in HDR continuing to grow, my wife decided to surprise me this past Christmas with something very special. In September of 2010, my wife and I traveled to London so that I could help Trey Ratcliff run his London HDR Workshop. (Note that I said “run” his workshop and not “teach” his workshop.)

A couple of weeks before Christmas, my wife got in touch with Trey’s wife (My wife and Trey’s wife became friends after they met each other in London, where they spent all of our money shopping and going on tours, while Trey and I put on his workshop.) My wife told Trey’s wife that she wanted to get me something very special for Christmas related to HDR and asked her to speak with Trey to see if he had any suggestions.
The photo that I’ve posted within this blog post is the culmination of what they all came up with. This is a limited-edition print (1/50) of the shot that Trey captured of the Big Ben Sunset. This was printed by imagewizards on a white, high-gloss sheet of aluminum. The print is absolutely stunning and was hung up in my office within 30 minutes after I received it. So here’s a special thanks to my wife, Tina Ratcliff and Trey Ratcliff.
