Now we go over to the castle. Unfortunately the weather prohibited me from getting a HDR of the whole thing. Instead I got only some minor details.



Translation :

"King Carl XI
Let rebuild the castles northern side 1690-1697
Fire roamed the castle May 7th 1697
The rebuilding continued till 1712, was re-issued 1728
The castle is stated as a home for royalty December 7th 1754"

More to come...

An enjoyable thread. Very good picks and places.
This may help to the horse story:

Thanks Ordo. It was interesting to know why the collars are on the horses. Also the horse here is the one next to the left side horse in the pic from the site.

Continuation of the castle.


First off is one of the many lion statues surrounding the castle.


Here's one of the doors going in to the castle.

my missus has the same i often borrow her 105 for my hdr as i havent got a wide lens however apparantly the 18 - 55 is sharper as i was going to get one for my d90 but opted for a macro lens for xmas instead and will continue to borrow the wifes for the time being

now to the hdr the first shot of the horse is ok but i personally if possible would have shot it further back to let the buildings draw you into the subject but i do like it ..... the golden statues really benifit from the hdr in my opinion..... and the building (#3 Panorama HDR of the building) is great and also the lion did you just try the one program to convert these?

Thanks for the lovely comments

No, I tried two different. Photomatix and Dynamic-Photo HDR.
They had a teeny tiny bits of difference but I ended up liking the Photomatix version better.

The statue represents GUSTAVO ERICI (Gustav I, born Gustav Eriksson and later known as Gustav Vasa; Born 1496; Died 1560), King of Sweden from 1523 - 1560.



The "Church of Riddarholmen" (Riddarholmskyrkan) is the burial church of the Swedish monarchs.

GUSTAVO ERICI is buried in the Cathedral of Uppsala

One made with Tone Compressor and the other made using Detail Enhancer, in Photomatix Pro

Last one. Hope you've enjoyed my trip in HDR.

Strömsborg was first used as an entertainment hall in the 1740s. The current building depicted here was built 1897 which served as a restaurant among other things.
The restaurant burnt down in 1953. Nowadays it's used as an office.

Tone Compressor in Photomatix Pro


Dynamic Photo HDR



And lastly... DO NOT HESITATE TO COMMENT!
any critisism is constructive in my eyes. bad as good. bad comments doesn't necessarily mean BAD. I may learn something for a change
