Take A Seat by Don Alexander Lumsden (Echo7)

A different view of a bench. Taken at Calton Hill, Edinburgh, Scotland.

I originally shot up there for sunset shots over a city…but couldnt resist this.

This is an HDR 11 exposure image. Tonemapped & layered with Photomatix Pro 4

The exposures were manually done. Changing the shutter speed by a 30th sec for each frame.

Nikon D3100
Nikkor 18-55mm
Focal Length 18mm
Aperture f18
Shutter speeds varied.

Worked with Nik Color Efex & CS5
