It's been a while since I took some photos, and as such I decided to take advantage of the blue sky and exercise my fisheye lens. As this lens distortion is most evident at straight lines, I looked for round objects. The recently rebuilt HaBima theatre in Tel-Aviv was found to be the perfect location.
As it was a sunny day, with bright buildings and dark shades I decided to use 0.7ev bracketing and later use HDR software to refine the result. I used Photomatix Essentials 3.1.1 which I purchased recently, so without any further delay, here are the photos:
and after a gentle HDR treatment:
The 2nd photo has enhanced colors, but aside of it there is no real difference between them.
Here is the front side of the building, starting from the original photo:
and the HDR, which, I think improves the visibility inside the building
and another version, which is more artisitic...
I took photos of a near by small garden, above the underground parking, here is how it looks with a regular lens
Taken with fisheye lens:
and enhanced by Photomatix
Now, let's see the famous 3-coins statue, partially obstructing the sun (Post processed)
And last, a regular photo of a scooter :)
That's all for today
