Roaming around Hong Kong’s Time Square with HDR post-processing
I’ve had HDR (high dynamic range) software for a couple of years and just never gotten around to experimenting with it. Sitting around on a holiday with nothing to do, I decided to play with it. HDR allows for an exaggerated range of luminance that takes a photo into the abstract and obviously loses it connection to reality. Not everyone likes the results. I happen to think that it works pretty well with night shots in a brightly lit urban environment. However, a little can be insufferable sometimes.
All photos shot with a Nikon D700 and Nikkor AFS 14-24mm f/2.8 zoom lens. Post processing with Capture One, Aperture 3 and Photomatrix HDR Tone Mapping software.
