10k hits and Ignis HDR

Kind of a strange combination in the title, well I was suppose to post Natsuki today but my camera is out of battery and while waiting for it to charge I thought I might as well post my first HDR pic to commemorate my first 10,000 hits.

Before we get to the photos I would like to thanks all those that have commented on and supported this blog. Thanks all, you guys been great ^^, I’ll continue to post more photos of my collection, I just hope you guys are not getting tired of my half-baked photography skills hehe ^^. Anyway enough of ranting, time for some photos…

This is the final result of the HDR image.

These are the initial photos I took to be merge into the HDR image. I started with exposure +1 and decrease by 1 each time until -1.

All these three photos were merge for HDR in photoshop, after some tweaking, the result I got was the first image posted above. The edge is a bit blurry though, probably because the original photos was not align properly. My camera doesn’t support bracketing so I had to manually adjust the exposure, that probably cause some movement to the camera and screw up the alignment.

Anyway I am quite satisfied with the final result but I wish the background wasn’t so dark though. Guess I need to try out HDR out more often before I can really come out with a nice HDR image.
