Torri – HDR image. Normally exposed image is ISO 800, 24mm, f/13, 1/640 sec. Canon 5D
Yet another temple from Japan. Images were combined using Photomatix Pro. Photoshop was then used to blend several versions of the image to get the final result. The combinations of the clouds on the sunny day kept the light changing, and very interesting on this Torii. I shot it from a few different angles but this one had the best overall composition. What I really like about it is the ominous clouds in the background, yet the shadows caused by the bright sunshine falling off the Torii. This is also a test of posting a photo in portrait mode. Its very possible that it will not fit well with the overall look of the Pixelbip design, or in the Mailchimp email.
