Artist's Description

Detroit Michigan (USA) taken from the Windsor, Ont Canadian side. Late, late on a Friday night. It’s a native 36×16 inch @300dpi five Photomatix HDR image stitch (PTGUI). Meaning you can print it at any Redbubble size and it will only get better the bigger you print it.
My Process:
Entered Canada via the tunnel. Getting there is the easy part. Returning home after only three three hours in Canada, by yourself, with a professional grade camera in the cabin? Plan a little extra time. Ya, there is a story there.

Take a flash light so you can see the levels of your three position tripod head. You want to level the tripod first. After the tripod, you need to level the head. Since I turn my camera on it’s side, I level the camera so the long area of the camera is up and down. I then turned on bracketing.
As some in past have told me on prior pictures, why use some many brackets. Simple so I have a better picture in the end. I may never return to this spot, so I want it to count. I used 7 backets a full stop apart for each of five total unique images that have elements of the prior picture in them so that PTGUI can later locate the overlaps and merge them together.
Since I was going from very bright lights to no light at all in the same picture, I use a very large number of brackets in my night shots. After that, I open up Photomatix 4.03 and the seven different exposers and work with the options until I get an image I like. I then save the settings using Photomatix so they they can be re-used on the remaining images. I then used that setting on all remaining images (4) so that all images were processed the same. Then I fire up PTGUI and stitch the stuff together. Having leveled the heads earlier make it easier for PTGUI to find the overlays. Photoshop CS5 was used to add some sharpening, and poof, you have the picture to the left. Overall, it’s not a quick process.
