I recently returned from a family vacation to Niagara Falls, Ontario. It was a large group, about fourteen of us, including our kids. It was something we had wanted to do for sometime. Our trip was planned from July 1 through July 4th which happened to coincide with Canada Day and our Independence Day. We spent most of the first day familiarizing ourselves with the town and I spent most of the first two days taking family portraits. I woke up early on our third day hoping I might get a chance at some HDR photography before the tourists and vacationers filled the streets.
This is a shot of Horseshoe Falls. I couldn’t quite get a good vantage point for the tripod so I placed the camera on top of a chunk of rock that composed the railing. Unfortunately a chunk of that rock is in the frame.
Three image HDR shot using a Nikon D40 and Nikkor 18-55 mm VR. Images were combined and tone mapped in Photomatix Pro with minor adjustments in Adobe Lightroom 4.
