I went to Wat Pho yesterday to do some photography. It’s one of Bangkok’s major tourist attractions because of it’s famous reclining Buddha image, around 50 metres long ! I’ve been there several times before, but this time I wanted to try and get some different photos so I took my fisheye lens and a tripod for some HDR images. As it is the low season now I managed to get some photos without tourists walking through the shot, but I’m still working on the HDR effects.
I have done a few monochrome images though, using Topaz B&W Effects for the one above and a couple using Photoshop and Lightroom. This one probably needs a bit of fine tuning, but I think it is better than the original on the left ?
And below is a photo of the Reclining Buddha using my fisheye lens …even with nearly 180˚ field of view you cannot get it all in !
