Lodge Kura Hulanda and Beach Club

Nov 7, 2010 | Nighttime HDR, Travel & Culture

My HDR photos are created by using Photomatix Pro HDR software. I use Luminar NEO for photo editing. I also use Topaz Software for noise removal and sharpening. Affiliate links provided to support site.

This nighttime HDR shot was taken from Lodge Kura Hulanda’s pool area. Lodge Kura Hulanda is one of the top resorts located in Curacao.  The first day there I was able to get a beautiful sunset, and this gorgeous moonlit shot. My photographic journey in Curacoa started off pretty good. On a side note, this HDR photo was tone mapped in Photomatix using Exposure Fusion.  I usually use Detail Enhancer, but I find that exposure fusion works best for nighttime photos, at least for me.

Software Used for Processing Photo:

Topaz Adjust

Topaz DeNoise
