Camera: Canon EOS 500D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm @ 10mm
Exposures: 3 (-2, 0, +2)
Exposure time (middle): 1/30s
Tripod: Manfrotto 190CXPRO4
Size: 12.6 MPx
Date: Taken in November 2013
Location: From the Main Market Square (Rynek) in Kraków
Software: Lightroom 5.2, Photoshop CS6, Photomatix Pro
Workflow: The Main Market Square is overcrowded by tourist most of the time. As I was there very early in the morning, I found the square almost empty. It was even allowed for cars to go there to deliver goods to the market.
With such photos against the sun it is always difficult to get the colors right. Thanks to the new Magic Lantern Software on my cam, I would make more exposures next time to handle the dynamic even better.
