Hail to Aurora HDR by ISIK5 Hail to Aurora HDR by ISIK5
The Aurora (Авро́ра; English transliteration: Avrora) is a Russian protected cruiser, currently preserved as a museum ship in St. Petersburg. She became a symbol of the Communist Revolution in Russia.

Having long served as a museum ship, from 1984 to 1987 the cruiser was once again put in to its construction yard, the Admiralty Shipyard, for capital restoration. During the restorational overhaul, due to deterioration, the ship's hull below the waterline was replaced with a new welded hull according to the original drawings. The cut off lower hull section was towed into the Gulf of Finland, to the unfinished base at Ruchi, and sunk near the shore.

The Aurora stands today as the oldest commissioned ship of the Russian Navy, proudly flying the naval ensign under which it was commissioned those many years ago. It is manned by an active service crew commanded by a Captain 1st Rank.

From 1956 to the present day 28 million people have visited the AVRORA.

She is such a beautiful ship, the last of her kind. Its a shame she's rusting away in her berth.

Makes her look very otherworldly.

She was a ship that had an eventful career.

nice shot, realy nice, but lucisart effect don't replace a real HDR :)

lucisart is a very strong effet but he has some defects, like burning some orange tones, makin particular noise &

he has a problem with the wires. :D
Like in this exemple ;)

first of all this is a 5 Raw HDR not Lucisart effect! The orange tones has nothing to do with Lucisart, it's because of a different filter and the wires problem is because of the Photomatix software not Lucisart. Only the noise part is correct in this comment :D

i was just sharing problems of lucisart with the others, is it a crime ?i clarified that (in this exemple), it was the wires problem, that's all :)

p.s : just before you said that it was a 3 raw hdr processing & now 5. photomatix, don't have any problem with the wires, you know what i mean, anyway, that's a good work cheers.

Açıkcası çok güzel bir hata olmuş, hiç canın sıkılmasın. Hani eski fotoğraflar olur ya böyle geminin üst tarafları falan eksik kalır çoğunda. İşte bana onları hatırlattı :) Çok güzel olmuş. :clap:
