:WOW: how is that even possible!?? Is this an HDR or something like?? because if not so I cannot picture myslef how did you capture that A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. lighting..golden melting gold on the background and amazing colors and definition on the closest elements!!!! I'm actually falling in love with this even more every second i spent watching it and trying to understand it!!
Thank you. I make some manual exposure blending on most of my photos. I do not work with automatic blending softwares like photomatix, I merge the different exposures manually in photoshop for better results but it needs a lot of time to do it.
To put you on the way I can say that it is a manual exposure blending with photoshop. There are 5 different exposures in this image and several setting layers on each one Of course I work with tripod to avoid moving between the different exposures.
