photoblog image Peterhof in St Petersburg

Peterhof in St Petersburg

 

This week I was in St-Petersburg for business. Luckily we had some time to visit this beautiful garden with golden statues. It was amazing to see. Later I'll post more pictures of my trip.

 

 

TECH-INFO: I shot 9 images handheld with each a stop differences to capture the range (7 would have been enough actually). Merge them into a HDR shot with Photomatix Pro. The newest version (that is 4) does ghost removal which was very handy because some people were moving in the frame. After tone-mapping I enhanced contrasts and brightened some parts. Also vignetting is added.
