Today’s Reader HDR Image comes from Stephen Presutti
(Thanks BTW to everyone that has submitted images this week, very cool!)
Here’s what Stephen has to say about his image:
This image was shot in the Piazza Navano in Rome, Italy. The name of the church escapes me right now, I’m sure It can be found online. (Church of Sant’Agnese in Agone) It was nearing evening, and the sky just looked amazing. One of those time where you get small white clouds with a crisp blue sky behind it. I knew any shot in this plaza that included the sky would look great.
Stephen used the folllowing equipment & processingNikon D7000
f/6.3 ISO 100
3-image handheld bracket by 2 stops
Tone Mapped in Photomatix Pro 4.1
Further post-processing in Lightroom 3 (Clarity, Exposure, Crop to straighten and center)

Just for reference for the scale in the Piazza, Stephen included this image too
Beautiful Image Stephen. You did a great job on it and your were right to get that great sky in the image. There is just something about the skies and the light in Italy. I’m not sure what it is but it NEEDS to be captured. I was in this exact spot 7 years ago and I can attest to what a wonderful place it is. Of course I had no idea what HDR even was then.
Thanks for sharing such a great image and bringing back memories of a cool place and for sharing with us a sight that not everyone gets to visit…but they should.
