Canal in Ghent

This is another example of what HDR does. Here are the original 3 exposures of a beautiful house on a canal in Ghent, Belgium:

And here is the final HDR. One might call it painterly but I find this way more representative of the real scene.

Inside the shop

This is once again Brussels. I was wondering around the city when a I stumbled upon this  woodworking shop. The man on the photo (probably the owner) was working on something by the window and just as I was about to press the shutter to take my 3 shots, he turned to talk to someone else in the shop.

On the other side of Brussels

This is on the other side of the canal in Brussels. Other being opposite to the city centre. In my experience it seems like lots of people who zip through the city on their european travels don’t find Brussels particularly interesting or attractive. But I couldn’t disagree more, I really like the city. Brussels is very unique, it has character and is a melting pot of many different nationalities and ethnicities. It doesn’t take long to walk around its neighbourhoods to see how different one is from the other. In a matter of days you can go from the historic city centre to the suits of european business capital to the busy streets of north african neighbourhoods right into Matonge, a lively home to a congolese community. And that still wouldn’t be the end of it.

Last Train

The title might be a little misleading. I have no idea if this was indeed the last train, probably not. But it was definitely my last hdr shot of the day as my memory card run out right after. This is the same train station in Antwerp, Belgium from the previous post. Here are the 3 shots:

And here’s the result: (As always click the pic to enlarge)
