Crater Floor Lanzarote

Crater Floor Lanzarote
This is the floor of the crater Montana Cuervo near Masdache, Lanzarote. It is not as well visited as many places on the Island despite its exceptional moon like beauty. It requires an easy 20 minute flat walk on a footpath from the road to the base of the Crater. Round the right hand side there is a great gash in the Crater wall permitting easy access to the crater floor. There are large numbers of rocks scattered across the Crater floor.

The picture is an HDR taken using a Tripod with a Sony A550 and Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10mm.
3 raw images 2EV spacing. Opened in Photoshop Camera Raw. Noise reduced in Photoshop with Noiseware Pro Plugin for each picture and saved as Tiffs.


Photomatix aligned and noise reduction. Outputted to tonemapping detail enhancer and another copy outputted to fusion mode


Tonemapped image opened as base. Fused image opened selected and copied as layer. Foreground masked off so fused image only shows for the sky with the object of reducing noise there.
