Notes: I'm back! I learned my lesson with last year's series, so this year's series will be all contained in chapters in one story, instead of separate fics. Hopefully I can make it through the whole season with one series again! Thanks for all the kind words last season, and all the encouragement over the summer to do it again--hope you enjoy it just as much!

There's a continuing argument around the use of HDR images. Purists proclaim that they're not "pure" pictures. They're not a realistic portrayal of the world, not what the human eye would see.

On the other hand, most pure digital images are not a realistic portrayal of what the human eye would see. They wash out the sky and are incredibly two-dimensional - something most photographers before digital compensated for with work on the images that digital just makes easier. Something most photographers do their best to compensate for when shooting RAW and editing the images before posting.

HDR has always helped me to get a picture that looks more like what I see with my naked eye. And who says that they're not like what other people see? You can't see through anyone else's eyes.

That said, is extreme HDR appropriate in hard journalism? Probably not. But as a photo? As a print? As art? Of course. People don't look at Van Gough's work for the reality. We look at it for what it makes us feel, how it represents how he saw the world. HDR just give those of us who can't paint a chance to share that, I think.

Have a look at some examples of HDR images and let me know what you think.

Just a heads up, for anyone who's interested, that I've just finished the draft of the sequel to Can You Feel My Heart, which means it'll be posted soon.

Y'know, just in case you wanted to re-read that in preparation for the sequel. :)

Summary: As 5-0 investigates an assassination linked to an M.O. going back fifty years, they get more than they bargained for when Captain America and Sam Wilson show up to help.

Notes: This story has been stuck in my head for months, but I needed for H50 to be done before I wrote it, and then it took longer than planned, and ended up about twice as long as planned. But I couldn't let go of the similarities between Steve and Steve, and I really loved exploring that, and how it affects those around them. So happy to have it finally out there now, though, and hopefully there are more than a dozen people who actually want to read a crossover between these two universes.

In case you're not familiar with one of the universes, here are quick ways to catch up so you can read:

Huge thanks to all the people who encouraged me when I was banging my head against the wall with this thing. Hope you enjoy it for your suffering in having to listen to my frustration! :)
