Edinburgh Castle from the Vennel (HDR)
For those of you that don’t know…
“A vennel is a passageway between the gables of two buildings which can in effect be a minor street in Scotland and the north east of England”
This one is more famous than most perhaps and is a great area to get a slightly less (albeit still significantly) clichéd view of the popular landmark. This particular shot was taken in the early evening about a month ago. I took 3 exposures (-2EV, 0EV and +2EV) and merged them to HDR using Photomatix 4 (a program which I find to be more much easier to get a good result from than Photomatix 3!). I’m quite pleased with the result but I would quite like to return there when it is a bit darker as I suspect the lights being on would improve the photo. A good sunset illuminating the sky behind the castle would also be nice.
