Night is Coming
It’s yet another photo I took in Warsaw last year. It was already getting dark but there was still a bit of light left in the sky and I thought it would be sort of cool to show this transition from day to night. Dynamic range was high in this case so it was necessary to capture HDR image (I used 5 bracketed images) which I tone-mapped in Photomatix Pro 5.1. Finishing touches were done in Photoshop and using ON1 Effects 10 plug-in.
If you would like to learn how to take and process such photos yourself, make sure to read my free HDR tutorial where I detail my post-processing.
