I haven't posted in a while due to being busy with finishing a PhD thesis. My treat at the end was a trip to Russia, coming back briefly via Scandinavia. This is the first image from my trip, the view from the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge, looking towards the Kremlin, Moscow. A three exposure HDR image processed using Photomatix and Adobe Lightroom.

The main hall of the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford, England. The museum is a collection of archaeological and anthropological items from Oxford University and is free to visit. This is a three image panorama consisting of three lots of three exposure HDR images (nine images in total). Raw HDR images were processed using Photomatix and the resulting EXR files stitched with Hugin. I chose a fish eye projection as that was the least harsh on cropping. Final touch up was performed using Adobe Lightroom. Overall I'm very pleased with the clarity of this image, considering the low lighting conditions within the museum and using the kit lens. Auto bracketed images were captured at a shutter speed of 1/8, 1/13 and 1/20 second, all handheld.

Late evening, looking out across a frozen lake in Trakai, Lithuania. The mist was gradually rolling in and this was the sight that greeted me as dusk was occurring. Three auto-bracketed exposures captured using a Canon EOS 500D equipped with the kit Canon EF-S 18-55 mm lens. Exposures were tonemapped using Photomatix and the resulting image was processed using Adobe Lightroom and GIMP.

The castle found on an island surrounded by frozen lakes in Trakia, Lithuania. The locals cleared a path on the frozen lake, however, this was more like an slippery icy walkway of death! A three exposure HDR image processed using Photomatix and Adobe Lightroom.
