NIKON D300, Nikon 12-24, HDR in Photomatix
Frankfurt (Main) Hauptbahnhof (usually translated from German as Frankfurt (Main) Central Station, short form: Frankfurt (Main) Hbf) is the central station for Frankfurt am Main. In terms of railway traffic, it is the busiest railway station in Germany. I travel into Germany a few times a year and am always going through the Main station.
My hotel this nite was only 2 blocks away and I wanted to get a shot of the station. As it was quiet at around 10 PM and the guards were bored and kept a close eye on me. I could tell they were ready to tell me to leave so I snapped only a few photos. I really wanted to get an HDR, but didn’t have the chance to get one.
So the photo above is an HDR of the Main station using 1 RAW photo! I converted the photo to +2,+1,0,-1,-2 (5 copies) and post processed in Photomatix! Not bad! As there are no moving parts in the photo (clouds, etc..) a single RAW photo conversion into an HDR is ok! I rarely do such a style…but sometimes it can work!
When traveling in Germany get used to saying Hauptbahnhof (train) & Flughafen (airport). Once you have mastered these…you can get around easily!! auf Wiedersehen!!
