This is a photo of Pepperpot Tower in Powerscourt Gardens, located in County Wicklow, Ireland. The tower is said to be designed after a favourite 3-inch pepperpot of Lady Wingfield, who was in residence at the Estate during the 1840’s.
This photo was taken using a Nikon D4s DSLR with a Nikon 24mm f/1.4 wide angle lens. The photo was first imported into DXO Pro Optics 9 to iron out any small anomalies, it was then taken into Photoshop CS6 where I created 5 different exposures (-2 through +5) out of a single image. From there I merged the images into 1 HDR file using Photomatix Pro 5, then I applied a filter to the HDR image using Topaz Labs Clarity. Finally, I amended the levels slightly using Lightroom 5.
Thanks for looking!
