Exposure Blending

I took a trip to Budapest last week with a view to taking some architectural pictures, I do not take photographs like this very often and when I do I usually struggle greatly with the management of dynamic range.

I decided to bracket off all of my architectural shots with a view of trying to get some natural looking HDR photographs using Photomatix, again my results using tone mapping have been fairly inconclusive to say the least.

But using the exposure blending function as opposed to HDR with tone mapping I got a couple of fairly good natural looking images. So I submitted them and the bpth got acceepted, the bad news is I now have a host of other pictures to process the good news is a couple of images closer to 200 :)

Second image was much more difficult as the foreground was very dark because of the tall buildings and then the very bright Szent Istvan Baszilika in the background, but the technique really works well.

I even got to use the new fancy geotagging function :)

Thank you all for the kind comments, Budapest is a very beautiful City but since we bought a house in the countryside I find it incredibly noisey :)

Thaks for the correction Agent87 :) My Hungarian is improving but it is an incredibly difficult language to learn!
