"Those who lack the courage will always find a philosophy to justify it." (Albert Camus)
Not a pretty picture but I'm stating the obvious. Taking a picture of a lit light bulb is not as easy as one would think. If you've ever tried it, you know that you'll most likely get a blown out picture with very little definition. To solve this problem, I shot 8 images at bracketed exposures and merge all the images in HDR.
