Saw these horses while walking around the Buda castle area in Budapest. I often walk around with the camera mounted on the tripod with my wide angle lens and the cable release connected. When I saw these fellows I lowered the camera and snapped a few shots. So, here they are looking down at the camera.


The original shot was underexposed because the camera was pointed mostly at the sky. Used Photomatix to tonemap it agressively and then replaced the sky with the one from the original image. Fixed the strong blue cast, and used curves to significantly lighten the image. It was fun to get these fellows to look magestic like they deserve. The HDR effect makes them look strong.
