McDonald Observatory in Ft. Davis, TX|
I visit this observatory every year when I attend the annual Texas Star Party.
This image was my first ever HDR image. To accomplish the High Dynamic Range, I took three bracketed photos in quick succession. Then I used the Merge HDR functionality in PhotoShop CS3 to combine the images. With the merged photo, I adjusted the HDR curves when converting from 32-bit to 16-bit, and increase saturation for yellow and blue to arrive at this result.
