Second set of photos from Olavinlinna (St. Olaf’s Castle). Olavinlinna is located in a south eastern city of Savonlinna. It was founded in 1475 and is the northernmost medieval stone fortress still standing.
I went there with two Japanese friends exactly a year ago. The photos are of typical Scumbucket quality, but this was my first experiment on shooting raw with the PowerShot. The second and third photo are also my first attempt at creating an HDR photo. They are sad failures in a sense that they look really bad, but brilliant successes because the photos I used to create those two looked even worse. I didn’t take the original photos thinking that I would try to combine them, so they were framed differently. It’s actually a miracle that I managed to combine four photos into these two. Maybe I’ll try this again with a tripod and more planning.
