HDR and back light – wallpaper “Gloriette”

3 comments

One great situation to use the HDR technique is when having backlight. In this picture here I used 5 brackets +/- 1EV. I could have used seven or nine brackets, but then the effect would have been gone.

I threw in a polarizing filter and my trusted Sigma 10-20mm to catch the magic beauty. I left my tripod at home so I made the shot handheld.

In postprocessing Nik HDR color efex and the updated Nik color efex was to be used. They had this promotion so I bought the update. They finally added support for stacked filters, so I can skip some steps and win time. Some filter algorithms are also working smoother – until now it was worth the money.

I did all the processing in lightroom 4 beta, which works like a pearl. I cannot wait to see the final.

So here is the wallpaper I promised. Click on the picture and rightclick afterwards to save the wallpaper.
