The Ha’Penny Bridge during Golden Hour

A 5 exposure, blended HDR shot of the Ha’Penny Bridge which spans the River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland. This shot was taken during the Golden Hour, just before sunset.
This shot was taken using a Nikon D810 camera with a Nikkor 16-35mm f/4 wide angle lens. Due to the different types of light in the scene, I had to shoot multiple exposures and blend them together using Raya Pro. The foreground including the trees were normally exposed, with the sunset and sky being underexposed to retain the detail in the clouds. Once I was happy with the final blended shot, I adjusted the shadows, blacks, clarity and tones in Lightroom and then reduced some of the noise using Topaz Labs DeNoise 5.

Thanks for looking!
