Promthep Cape Viewpoint from Phuket Thailand

Jul 3, 2012 | Photo Art & Montage, Travel & Culture

Yesterday evening we drove around the West Coast of Phuket and stopped at Promthep Cape Viewpoint. This is probably the most scenic viewpoint in all of Phuket, especially for sunset. I hiked down to the bottom of the Cape to photograph this lone Palm. This HDR image came from six exposure. I think if I had my Canon 5DMK2, three exposure would have been enough. But I have my Rebel T3 so there’s a limit in dynamic range which forced me to shoot two more exposures +/-4 stops each. The final tone mapped image came out pretty good but results were a little muddy. I decided to use Topaz Simplify to hide the sloppiness. I was hoping for a clean shot but this one came out pretty cool too. I plan on going back again and getting some more shots since this place seems to be a popular area. Hopefully I’ll get something much nicer where I don’t have to hide the imperfections.
