photoblog image Temple in HDR

Temple in HDR

In the centre of Chiang Mai are the remains of Chedi Luang, a massive chedi, damaged in an earthquake. This temple was at that time of the evening, partly in the shadows of the chedi. The chedi itself, a magnificent piece of Lanna architecture, falls outside the frame on the right side, beyond the moat. I chose to do this in HDR as the golden facade of the temple was lost in the shadows cast by the massive chedi whereas the walls and roof tops on the left side of the image, lying just outside the shadow, were still catching the last rays of the sun. Owing to the HDR, the fluttering flags have been caught as separate composites.

Great photo I must read and try some hdr work
This is magnificent Ayush. The HDR has turned it out beautifully
Superb use of HDR, Ayush. Gives the image a magical touch. So disappointed I didn't get the chance to visit Chiang Mai while in Thailand; just too much to see in too little time. Sigh...
