HDR Photography – Sunset Over Switzerland
“Sunset Over Switzerland” – Here’s a shot that I took in Gimmelwald, a small village in the Bernese Oberland located in the Swiss mountains. After hiking all day, I decided to do one more hike to catch the sunset! I took the last gondola up the mountain and hiked through two towns to this small village. When I arrived, I got completely immersed in the scenery while trying to capture the vanishing light. Once the sun finally set, I realized that I had to head back down in the dark. I’d soon find out that this wasn’t the wisest decision I’ve ever made. The switchback trails through the trees were fairly steep and it took me 5 hours to get back down in the dark…probably one of the most painful hikes I have ever done.. which I’m sure is laughable to the locals!
Post Processing “Sunset Over Switzerland” – I took three bracketed shots EV (-2, 0, +2) and combined the them in Lightroom to create an HDR image. Then I used Lightroom on a single exposure (EV, 0) to create a couple of different creative versions. Next I combined the original three EV (-2, 0, +2) RAW files into Aurora HDR and Photomatix to create another HDR version. Finally, I blended all my “versions” into Photoshop to get the final image!
