This article is about two things. The 1st thing is the church and the 2nd one is how I made the photos of it.
The idea to build the church was proposed by the veterans who participated in local wars in 2007. The church was built in the name of the Evgeniy, the soldier who died in Chechnya refusing changing his religion to Islam. Then this church was renamed in the name of the icon of the Mother of God “Recovery of Fallen”.
The photos of this church are HDR photos made hand-held. Most interesting is the photo of the interior of the church. This is a vertorama made using 18mm lens with ISO400 with bracketing shots.
This time the new approach was used: I made a nose reduction before merging to HDR and then one more time after merging and tone-mapping. Vertorama was merged in Photoshop CS5. Then the postprocessing using a few layers was applied.
