Photo: Winter Wonderland, Hyde Park

Following the mulled wine in Covent Garden, we headed across London and into Hyde Park for the opening night of Winter Wonderland. Being opening night, it was ridiculously busy and a bit tricky to find a spot to set up a tripod without it being knocked over in crowd.

I eventually found a small foot bridge that had some elevation above the crowd and snapped off this five shot fusion. The problem with the bridge was that it was temporary, and made of wood. It shook a lot whenever people walked over it and caused a lot motion blur in my initial shots. After about 15 minutes of waiting for a break, I got a few clear minutes with no-one else moving on the bridge and managed to get the photos I wanted.

I’ve emphasized the colour blue in this image to help depict the cold weather and the ‘Winter’ feel of the night.

This is a 5 shot fusion from -2 to +2 EV blended using LREnfuse and Lightroom 5.

Here’s my next shot of Covent Garden taken on Saturday evening. I liked the close up shot I took of the reindeer in my previous post, but I also wanted to showcase the buildings surrounding Covent Garden, the atmosphere and also my vantage point where I took the photo.

This is also a 5x shot HDR, processed in enfuse and Lightroom 5.

Next up is a shot from winter wonderland in Hyde Park… Keep an eye out 🙂
