Monuments

Gaitor Monuments

I just booked a flight to New York city – from March 17th to March 25th – and I’m really looking forward be shooting in the big apple, and to get back to the US, cause traveling around there is a thing that I enjoy very much.

Well that intro leads me straight to the question that I always ask you when I’m going somewhere, or actually it’s two questions.

  1. Would you recommend a place – other than the obvious like Statue of liberty and such – that’s worth a visit for a photographer?
  2. Are there any photographer base in New York, who would like to meet up for a cup of coffee and a photowalk?

Well todays photo has absolutely nothing to do with New York, it’s from the Gaitor Monuments, this incredible site is located at the outskirts of Jaipur, India. and definitely well worth a visit if you are traveling in these parts.

This photo is and HDR made from 5 RAW exposures, and for once I only used Photoshop for the post process, even the HDR was made in PS (for some reason I wasn’t able to process the HDR in Photomatrix, it just turn out totally black).
It turns out a bit different that the Photomatrix HDR’s, normally I prefer the matrix HDR look, but in this case I really like the Photoshop version.

I had just bought a brand new Sigma 20mm lens for my Nikon D3s, and I couldn’t wait to take it out for a test run. I drove around Copenhagen on my bike shooting all kinds of stuff. I didn’t bring my tripod – I hate to drive around with it on My bike – so in order to get this shot I put my camera on the fountain’s edge to get My 5 exposures.

And this is what I finally ended up with, after a bit of Photomatrix and Photoshop magic.
