UNA Fountain Pictures

I’ve liked seeing the lighting of the UNA fountain at night after their football games. I’ve shot it a few times hand held but they just weren’t too sharp. After last night’s game I pulled out the tripod and shot a series of pictures and got some good results.

This first one is the final result of the shots below. I took the merged shot and pulled out as much as I could without it becoming a digital mess. In Lightroom CC I bumped the whites and shadows a bit, the blacks a lot and bumped up the clarity quite a bit.


The shot started as three auto exposure bracketing shots. 


The baseline 22mm f/14 for .3 sec at ISO 400.


The next one at f/14 1/6 sec ISO 400


The final one at f/14 .6 sec ISO 400

I merged them into an HDR image in Lightroom to get:


This is the one I played around with to get the shot at the top.
