The Return of The Blue Bike

Another shot that I took right next to Karlsruhe Castle. Lots of people were walking around this place and probably everyone thought I would be crazy, spending time shooting this bike in some ridiculous position.

This image is a HDR composite made of two exposures, since I neither wanted any channel clipping on the sky, nor highly noisy shadow areas (like on the bike's tires). I blended the exposures using enfuse, which did a pretty good job. Using the Gimp, I added some more tone mapping for brightening up dark areas. I also spent some time adjusting the image's saturation and overall brightness.
