Brussels, Belgium – Grand Place – HDR

Brussels Grand Place HDR

NIKON D300, Nikon 12-24, HDR in Photomatix

This photo is from Brussels, Belgium at the Grand Place.   It was around 8 PM…dinner time for the Europeans and I was walking around taking lots of HDR’s.  I have processed a few from this day and I like the colors and the people sitting on the curb in this shot.  I am lucky though!   If the people were a little closer – zombieville!    A friend of mine Phil sent me a link a few weeks back of a photographer that used HDR for wedding portraits.  I thought that was an amazing idea.  I looked at the site.  Luckily the bride and groom are a good distance away from the camera, so they are not affected too much by the HDR effect.  Its an idea to try in the future.  A family portrait in HDR?  Maybe?  I’d have to try a few shots and see what is an acceptable the working distance betweeen the lens and person.  I think it will take practice!  Or a little photoshop help? 

I’d like to branch out my skills in HDR one day soon.  I am planning to rent the Nikon 10.5 Fisheye Lens on a trip soon.  I’ll post some shots hopefully by August 1st.  I’m also trying to think of different subjects…we have an old car show here in Texas in September – now that will be fun!  If the lens works out well…it would be fun to have then!   Enjoy!
