Toji Temple by dragonslayero Toji Temple by dragonslayero
Hmmm, seems in my previous photo I stat might be a little slow with submitting new photos...so consider this a hiccup...

This photo is a HDR merge of several photos I shot of the five story pagoda at Toji Temple [link] in Kyoto, Japan.
Really a spectacular structure and according to the wiki link it states that it is only open to enter a few times a year.... guess I was lucky becuase we got to enter. (Sorry, no photos from the inside)

Ok, this HDR was merged from three different exposures.
Photos taken with my now retired EOS 350D, merged with PSCS3, tonemapped using photomatix.
(also sorry for the small size, art theft can be a problem these days you know...)

No unauthorized copying please.

Thank you very much!
It's one of my personal favorites too, even made a big print of it to decorate the staircase of my house.

It's propably just going to be that one for me.
It sort of just fit together with my martial art diplomas and certifications... in a way I felt it had a sense of "Japan" to it :P

Temmelig imponerende ja.
57 meter høy trebygning som faktisk er ca. 600 år gammel.
Det var gledelig bare å være der. Men så kan jeg snart beskrives som "Japan-otaku" :P

Kult.

Er det noen drageskulpturer der eller?

Nja lite drager, men nok av andre Buddhistisk inspirerte statuer. Mest sånne Vahrja statuer, men de er jo ganske så nasty i utseendet de og så jeg vil påstå de oppfyller kravet til å se rå ut!
Har dessverre ingen bilder innenifra pga. fotoforbud, men jeg kan se om jeg kan få scannet noen bilder fra en brosjyre jeg fikk med meg.
Ok det var jo drager i templene og, men helst noe mindre is størrelse

Eg blei ganske så øveraska sjøl av resultatet. På dei bildene eg har så va liksom ikkje skyene det så va imponerane, men det e jo utrulig ka tonemapping kan få fram av et RAW bilde.
Nå e det bare sånn at eg har funne meg någen innstillingen så ser ut som lage optimale resultat... bare håbe eg kan holda på dei.
Og det besta med alt, e at samtlige HDR frå Japan tog eg håndholdt så eg kan godt sei det e et håb for adle? :)
