Picture of the Day: The Dreamy Skyline of Singapore

Picture of the Day: The Dreamy Skyline of Singapore

This magnificent HDR skyline image was taken at Marina Bay in Singapore by photographer Matthew Brandalise of San Jose, California. Using 3 layered images with different exposure times, resulted in a dreamy and colorful night shot.

“I was perched on the stairs next to Louis Vuitton store (previously featured here). I used a Nikon D4 with a Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED lens. I used the Pedco UltraPod II Lightweight Camera Tripod to steady the camera. I shot in the evening at 7:30pm on a late fall evening. Settings were ISO 400, F5.0, 26mm. I took three photos bracketed at -1ev, 0ev, and +1ev targeting 1.6 seconds exposure time in the camera’s manual settings. Exposure time actually was varied on each frame due to the camera, so I had 1.3 seconds, .6 seconds, and 2.5 seconds on the exposures. I then layered the images using Photomatix to get the final HDR image. There was a light wind at the time which caused the movement on the water leading to the dreamy effect.” -Brandalise describes the conditions of the shooting.
