Bath Day11 Hdr
Philadelphia

Reconstruction has begun.  This panorama is a test of high dyanamic range technique.  Taken with Sigma 8mm fisheye at f/5.6 on Canon 7D at ISO 100.  5 exposures spaced 2 EV, nominal input range 18 stops; at least 16 stops for real. Raw files converted with Photoshop CS5, TCA and white balance correction, 'camera faithful' profile.  Stitched with PTGui Pro 9.1 to 5 'blend planes' which were then merged to hdr and tonemapped with Photomatix 4.1 'details enhancer' using all default settings except: gamma 1.20, lighting effect 'natural'.  Final contrast enhancement and conversion to 8-bit jpeg in Photoshop.  Alternatives that did not work as well: hdr merging with Photoshop (bad color) or PTGui (less dynamic range, flat color); fusing blend planes in PTGui or with enblend ( less dynamic range ).

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
