Re: Heritage Night Shot

Nice use of HDR without it being obvious. The bright, almost supernatural illumination suits this subject well. I like it!

I have no idea what you've done, or how you've achieved this, but that building just glows, it's wonderful.

Wink Re: Heritage Night Shot

Thanks for the comments!

The image was taken on a recent photography club night visit to Stowe. Working in near total darkness, the camera was set to a one minute exposure, and while the shutter was open the scene was illuminated using (very powerful) torchlight.

This was repeated a few times to ensure that all parts of the scene were illuminated. The final images were then blended together to create even illumination.

There are a few areas that need a bit of work, but I was pleased with the effect.

Re: Heritage Night Shot

I like that - very nice effect indeed.

I just wonder whether it might be worth trying with the foreground held back a little more? It seems a bit bright in proportion to the rest of the scene at the moment.

Re: Heritage Night Shot

The picture was certainly worth all that effort
