Alexandria Opera House

Alexandria Opera House

The Alexandria Opera House was constructed in 1918 during the reign of Sultan Fuad I and named “Mohamed Ali Theater”. The original owner was Badr El Din Kerdany who had appointed French architect Georges Baroque to do the design. Following its inauguration in 1921, the theater was host to celebrated Arab and foreign singers. In 1962 the theater was renamed “Sayed Darwish Theater” in honour of this pioneer of Arab music. In front of the Opera House, a sitting statue of Nubar Pasha, the first Prime Minister of Egypt.

The Photo was captured with three single exposure frames, and later merged into a Vertorama. A Vertorama is a term describing vertical Panorama merge. Originally, I have taken each of the three shots in the bracketing mode in case an HDR is needed. But at the time of processing, I found the neutrally exposed images had enough dynamic range to get everything in the lighting and tone I wanted. Thanks for the beautiful SONY A7 sensor.
The Vertorama merge was done in Photoshop, while most of the processing steps were completed in Adobe Lightroom.
