As traditionally, since today was the All Saints’ Day, I’m posting a new photo from the Martins Cementery in Bratislava. As you may know, most countries in Europe don’t celebrate Halloween, but we have the All Saints’ Day instead. The tradition is to go and light candles on graves. And if you go to a cemetery, there is usually one or two more central places with a cross or a statue, that is just covered with candles. And this is one of those.

This is a HDR from 7 exposures, created in Oloneo Photoengine, finished in Photoshop. I had to go with so many exposures, as it was already quite dark when I took the photos, and the statue was very brightly lit. You can even see, on some of the flowers next to it, that I got no detail in those, even with so many exposures.
