photoblog image Central Station of Warsaw

Central Station of Warsaw


Entrance to the central train station in Warsaw, Poland.


TECH-INFO: 9 JPGs shot using a tripod. I used HDR techniques to cover the huge dynamic range of light. For night photography, most people shoot a single image which yields in image with way too many and too heavy blown out areas. Only multiple exposures can cover everything. After tone mapping the HDR file to a 16-bit TIFF, I enhanced contrasts of several spots in the frame.

Got to try this sometime. Love your HDR, especially how balanced it is. Great comp too.
a lot of the best "night" photography is done when there is still some light in the sky.

The HDR has really worked well here Paul, some grand processing there.

Sure, your nighshot always superb. So like the wide angle distorsion (if not result from image treatment). I think I will put poland visit before many other country...
