photoblog image Palace, Donau and Photographer

Palace, Donau and Photographer


During our visit in Budapest we followed the Donau direction South. Behind me was the National Theater. The big building at the right is the Palace of art. At the bottom in the middle a man is taking images with a DSLR.


TECH-INFO: 5 shots hand held, converted from RAW to TIFF using DxO Optics Pro. Merged into HDR using Photoshop. There were some moving people but luckily they were removed after merging. Tone-mapping is done in Photomatix Pro. Afterwards I processed it even more in Photoshop. Contrast layers are added and one B/W layer (but at a 30% opacity) to desaturate parts of the image and darken the sky. This time I didn't add any vignetting though I brightened parts around the center of the image.

I'm in awe at the details of the processing Paul, I'm only just starting to work with RAW. A great finish and an excellent composition.
Great sky, Paul
your usual very high standards in all departments Paulsmile

really nice picture. would like to know the lens you use.
LightningPaul: Thanks Rose for stopping by. The lens is a Nikkor 10-24mm, used widely open at 10mm. I'm very happy with the lens especially with apertures between f/5.6 and f/16.
