Glasgow Uni

Nikon D70 @ 10mm, various shutter speeds, f/8, ISO 200


Previous · Current · Next


I went back home to Glasgae on Friday night and as I was just about to go over the Kingston bridge I thought I'd get a couple of night shots of the uni. The main shot I had in mind was one of the cloisters at night but with the lights on. Unfortunatey, by the time I got there it was after midnight and all of the lights were off. So no cloister shots for me... this time.

Instead I got a couple of other shots, including this one which was taken in one of the entrances to the main building. It's an HDR image consisting of 7 images with different exposures. Here's a bigger version" to get the full effect of the image.

Gorgeous, I don't normally like HDR images as they rarely look realistic, but this is spot on!!

WOW.

the distortion and exposure worked to great effect. i love the lines and the door framing the outside.

Would love to see the slight tilt adjusted though. giving me a slight(est) sense of unbalance.

Absolutely beautiful! I love the huge amount of detail in this, and I am incredibly jealous of your 10mm ;) Looks fantastic.

I can see my flat!

Love them or loathe them I'm sure well all agree that this is a very good HDR.

Although I'm inclinded to agree with jcyrhs, the tilt at the sides makes me feel like I've had one too many Buckies (well ok one is TOO many, but you know what I mean).

I hope a lot of people come by to see this picture, because it is a perfect example of how use use HDR. Too often pictures look fake - which almost always happens when people take new tools too far - but this is excellent!

This is a wonderful HDR image. I made one myself today, probably not as good as this one :-) Great shot!

Excellent use of HDR - it's greatest strength is it is not immediately recognisable as HDR, which is something of an achievement
