As seen from the city wall.
Nanjing, China. 2008.
I took this back in 2008 and put together an HDR image at the time then I never liked. I don't think I posted the final image then. I came accross the original files recently and with newer software, and with a bit of extra knowledge about HDR two and a half years later, decided to try again. This is the result. A tonemapped image from Photomatix with a bit of photoshop work done with curves and layers after.
The real struggle in this was the smog. The hazy smog just killed the contrast throughout much of the image -- this was made even worse in the HDR image. I'm pleased with how this did turn out in the end though.
