Agia Sofia cave in Topolia gorge, Crete. Extreme dynamic range HDR shot.
Every High Dynamic Range scene like this is very hard to be properly photographed. If the cave's interior is to be visible on the photo, the view outside is overexposed. On the other hand, getting properly exposed exterior means that no details inside are visible, or are very noisy. The above result was achieved by combining 11 photos spanning 9EV, taken hand-held. The exposure settings were changed manually, no bracketing was used. EasyHDR aligned the shots and merged them to a HDR image.
