Rizal Monument at Luneta Park


Where have I been?

Aside, from my earlier post today, it has been about a week since the last one.  The reason for this gap is that I was gone for about a week, inspecting flat-bed dryers in Davao Oriental, Davao del Norte, and Compostela Valley.

Rizal Monument at Luneta Park

Jose Rizal is the most famous national hero of the Philippines.  He was executed by the Spanish in 1896 for his alleged role in the revolution that resulted in independence from Spain.  Somewhere around Luneta Park, but not where the monument is, was where the execution, by firing squad, actually took place.  If I’m not mistaken, his remains are entombed in the Monument.

The photo below is another example of HDR.  I took 3 bracketed exposures, merged them in photomatix, and then retouched in Aperture 3.  The photo was taken with the Pentax k-r and the cheap DA-L 18-55 mm kit lens (the DA* f2.8 16-50 mm is on my wish list).
