Travel Photo Contest – Stephen DesRoches
Something that is travel to me, is home to another so I struggle with what actually defines travel photography. When away from my small home town of Charlottetown, one category that sings travel for me are cityscapes. I like to take home something close to a skyline view of each location I visit as a collectable item. It’s a common subject and all done before but consider it like a souvenir.
Here is that common view of downtown Montreal Quebec seen from Mont Royal. Determined to be a little unique, we had hiked up the side of the mountain early in the day to get a sense of the trails and view and then returned later that night in the dark for this photo. A total of 15 photos to be exact. This HDR panoramic view was a merge of five frames using three exposures for each. To show details in a 400px window of this very wide 13000 by 2000 pixel photo, I’m including a cropped view below the full piece.
