Kensigton Gardens

Daily photo - Kensigton Gardens

Today I decided to share another high dynamic range photo I took in London - this one shows one of the buildings in Kensigton Gardens.

Although this might not be obvious at first glance, this scene was really challenging as far as light is concerned. The building was quite dark and was back-lit. It is that kind of scenes where HDR really shines - by bracketing and tone-mapping I was able to create image with balanced exposure across whole frame without too dark and too bright areas.
