First upload! - Campanile di San Marco (St Mark's Tower)

 Campanile di San Marco - St Mark's Tower
This will be the first of many photos I upload. I am going to attempt to upload one photo every day. This particular photo is of the top of San Marcos’ bell tower as seen from inside the court yard of the Doge’s palace. A favorite of my first attempt’s at HDR. HDR, for anyone not aware of the term refers to High Dynamic Range. It’s created using various software to combine two or more photos taken at differing exposure levels. The software takes the best pixels from each photo and creates one incredible photo. This one was actually made from a single jpeg. I created three copies of the original, one darkened and one lighten. The resulting photos don’t always turn out great when using only one source but most turn out amazing as you will see in future uploads. I have some recent photos created using at least five pics at -2, -1, 0, +1, and +2 EV settings that i will get to uploading sooner or later…
