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.
Lelystad, the Netherlands, Sept. 23, 2008

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 ;)

  1. “The Batavia Yard” in Lelystad, the Netherlands, is foremost a center for traditional shipbuilding. Since 1985 over 200 young people have built an authentic reconstruction of the VOC-merchantman Batavia from 1628. " – read more about this amazing place, and about the reconstruction of this marvellous sail ship here Batavia Yard
  2. Some material of the original ship wreck is exhibited in the Western Australia Fremantle Maritime Museum – read more about it here
    Thanks to Andrew Makowiecki for bringing in this additional info! :)

Technical details
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
