This is a typical scene of the streets in the Old Islamic Cairo. Specifically, this is Al Muizz street, one of the oldest streets in Cairo, approximately one kilometer long. A United Nations study found it to have the greatest concentration of medieval architectural treasures in the Islamic world. Some of the buildings in that street are as old as a 1000 years.

The photo is one of the very few HDRs I made where people are there. As usual, three bracketed exposures merged in an HDR software (Photomatix this time) and then touched in Photoshop. Moving objects & People are continuous challenges when bracketing photos because HDR softwares sometime don’t recognize them and show them as ghosts. And here comes Adobe Photoshop role to help moving any ghosting using Masks between the HDR version and the original photos.
