I decided I would come back to 500px and try it out for a bit.

4 photos from 4 completely different times and days (Days 15, 16, 19, 21)
1st photo: 6 shots, 1EV spaced, HDR and hand-blended, night time, winter
2nd photo: 6 shots, 1EV spaced, HDR, sunrise, winter
3rd photo: 5 shots, 1EV spaced, HDR and hand-blended, late sunrise, late winter
4th photo: 2 shots, hand-blended, daytime, spring
All hand-blended with masks and brushes, no additional editing to the photo

Total : 19 shots

To make this picture, I went back and found some of my favorite shots from this project. The pictures that make up this one are Day 15, Day 16, Day 19, and Day 21. In this project, I have been trying to show the changes from just one step out my front door at different times, seasons, weather conditions, etc. So I thought, what better way to show all these changes than to stop time and let them all exist at the same time. The only way this is possible is in a picture, so I made it happen.

I tried to make everything as seemless as possible, but it was difficult with different lighting and slightly different compositions. Let me know- does it look too edited? Can you see the seems? What do you think of the concept?

Thank you, and enjoy.

It only takes one step out the door.
