photoblog image Golden Terraces at Christmas

Golden Terraces at Christmas


In the center of Warsaw, in Poland, is the luxury shopping mall called Golden Terraces (in Polish: Zlote Tarasy). Normally it is very crowded over there, except on Christmas day. Most places are closed or guarded by security. I have been waiting till the guard went away for a minute to snap my camera, hold on the balustrade to keep it steady and to make a few shots. After a while the security noticed me, meaning I had to leave the place.


TECH-INFO: 5 JPG shots, each a stop difference. Merged into HDR using Photoshop, because it does a fine job aligning the shot pictures. Afterwards tone-mapped in Photomatix and finally improved in Photoshop, mainly contrast and color enhancement using masked adjustment layers.

Great sneaky shot if I may say so. I wish you Happy Holidays and may you continue to bring us countless good shots!
