London, England – Big Ben – HDR

London - Big Ben HDR

NIKON D300, Nikon 18-200 VR, HDR in Photomatix

Here is my first HDR of Big Ben…when I visited London recently – this was my number one target for an HDR.  Even better – the day was very cloudy and gray.  Cloud cover when shooting and HDR gives the photo such feeling.  It was sprinkling this day and I had to wipe off my lens numerous times.  

I think I HDR’ed the heck out of Big Ben this day.  So far this is the only HDR I have processed from London.  I took about 25 different angles of the building.  I may even have a better shot?  I’ll work on these later on.   I fought the crowds with my tripod and used 5 exposures and a cable release.   When its crazy and I am using a tripod one thing I alway do is –  even when my camera is mounted to the tripod I keep the strap around my neck.  Just in case if someone trips on my tripod…my camera is saved!

Prepare for a bunch of London shots later in the week.  Cheers!
