An HDR panorama from the town of Hallstatt of the Hallstatter See, in the Austrian Salzkammergut region.

Lake Hallstatt or Hallstätter See is a lake in the Salzkammergut, Austria, located at 47°34′43″N 13°39′38″E / 47.57861°N 13.66056°E / 47.57861; 13.66056. Its surface is approximately 8.55 km² and its maximum depth is 125 metres. It is a popular destination for tourists, especially scuba divers.

With the camera hand held, this panorma was created from 4 groups of 3 different bracketed exposures (-2, 0 +2), totaling 12 separate photos. Each bracket was tonemapped in photomatix creating 8 × 45 mb tif files. These tiff files were then stitched together in hugin creating a single 90mb tiff file.

This file was then opened in photoshop, duplicated to 2 layers. The top layer was run through Topaz denoise to clean it up, a layer mask was then applied to reveal the detail in the features below the horizon.

The file was then saved as a jpg for uploading.

Photographs taken with Nikon D7000, 10-20mm Sigma lens @ 10mm, iso 100, f/4
