This impressive structure that you can see in the photo below is London's city hall. I took this photo from Tower Bridge on a rainy day and for that reason the image looked really boring in colour. I decided to try black & white and it worked quite well.

All editing for this image was done in Lightroom and the adjustments involved desaturating and increasing contrast and clarity.

Today I decided to share another high dynamic range photo I took in London - this one shows one of the buildings in Kensigton Gardens.

Although this might not be obvious at first glance, this scene was really challenging as far as light is concerned. The building was quite dark and was back-lit. It is that kind of scenes where HDR really shines - by bracketing and tone-mapping I was able to create image with balanced exposure across whole frame without too dark and too bright areas.

This is quite an old photo that I processed not that long time ago (you know with photo library containing thousands of photos it's quite easy to fall behind). This was pretty tricky photo that required me to use slightly different workflow that I normally use. Most of the time I load photos into Photomatix, merge them to HDR, tone-map resulting HDR image and then I work further on tone-mapped image in Photoshop to improve contrast, colours and clarity.

However, in this case moving water was quite tricky to get it right - there were a lot of ghosts in the HDR image. So instead I used manual blending using luminosity masks and simply masked water from one of the source exposures.

In this short tutorial I'm talking about differences between Saturation and Vibrance sliders available in Photoshop and Lightroom: http://hdrphotographer.blogspot.com/2014/08/saturation-vs-vibrance-whats-difference.html
