HDR Photo at the Port of Entry of Universal in Florida

It's been a while since my last posts before I went on vacation. The photo above was shot in Universal Orland. I shot this as we were walking along the Port of Entry. I had my Canon EOS 60D with the EF-S 10-22mm at the time, and it was the perfect lens to do the job. That day I only brought one camera body with me and and extra lens the Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 because I really wanted to travel light, but I could have gone with just the 10-22mm.

Anyway, back to the photo above, I shot it at 10mm handheld,  camera was set on aperture priority at F/6.3, and ISO 100. I set it on autobracketing mode to capture three different exposures that I later combined using Photomatix 4 to come up with this HDR Photo. After Photomatix, I then open it up on Photoshop CS5 and use Topaz Adjust to soften some of the details and pop the colors a litle bit.

Gear Summary:


  • Photomatix Pro – I used this in creating this High Dynamic Range Photograph by merging the three exposures I shot.
  • Topaz Adjust – This from Topaz Labs. I used this to enhanced the details on my photographs.
  • Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4
     – I used Lightroom to manage and organized my photographs.
