The Flavian Ampitheater – HDR Style

Powered By SmugWP

Most people know of this place as the Colosseum, though it’s official name is the Flavian Ampitheater.  This was shot at high noon in November in Rome – so a normal exposure was impossible.  The left side of the picture was blown out, the right side was blackness.  To solve, I shot three exposures from a tripod at +1EV, 0EV, and -1EV.  When I got home, I merged them with Photomatix Pro to get this result.

Vital Stats: Canon Rebel XT with the Canon 10-22mm lens @ 10mm.  ISO 100, f/11, 3 bracketed exposures centered around about 1/20sec.  A Joby Gorillapod wrapped around an iron railing was used to steady the camera.
