The Batavia – HDR – On the day we visited the Batavia yard, it was very rainy and windy – the dark sky made the ship look even more impressive, and gave some ‘adventurous’ touch to our visit of the place.

Batavia Yard series
First of a series of pics about the Batavia yard I plan to upload in the coming days/weeks – just stay tuned ;)
Photograph made with Pentax K10D camera and Pentax 18-55 lens –
HDR proces info : Pseudo-HDR made from 1 pic (f/3.5, 1/1000sec, 200 iso – handheld) – I first did some retouching (removed a disturbing flag and light pole at both edges left and right , then slightly adjusted levels and sharpening in Photoshop 7.0 – Then I imported the image in Lightroom 2 and made 5 copies with different exposures. Since the orig pic was underlighted, I choose for exposure settings -1 0 +1 +2 +3 . Then exported each of these pics to use in Dynamic Photo HDR program to make the HDR version
This photo was featured in Miniatures and Mammoths
