This was captured back in 2003 for a collaborative project that I was working on with Mark Wisniowski called HDRImaps. These HDRI map files are used in 3d rendering applications to create photorealistic lighting environments. At the time, no streamlined tools existed to work with HDR sequences. What I wasn't able to do then, I am now able to do today in 5 minutes using the native tools of Photoshop CS3, gotta love the evolution of technology!
