About the Image(s)

In the fall in Minneapolis, Minnesota there is an annual Renaissance Festival, the revival of art and literature under the influence of classical models in the 14th–16th centuries. I went many years ago and decided to go once again, covid precautions observed of course. I spent several hours photographing the displays and people (both performers and observers) dressed in period clothing who were quite pleased to be photographed.

I shot a hand held, bracketed exposure in Camera Raw, then opened the three images in Bridge, opened in Camera Raw, highlighted the three images, right clicked, and chose Merge to HDR. Once I had the completed HDR image, I did some smart sharpening, contrast/brightness adjustments, straightening, and cropping.
