Here is a single-shot edit of a random bit of time-lapse I captured during an overnight stay at the Holiday Inn Birmingham City Centre on Smallbrook Queensway, Birmingham, UK. This video was shot on a Canon PowerShot A640, time-lapse-enabled with the Canon Hack Development Kit (CHDK).
I captured triple exposures in order to post-process into high dynamic range (HDR) but I prefer the look of the single exposures. The still image is a tone-compressed HDR, post-processed with Photomatix Pro, but mangled due to camera movement.
I shot it as 1600×1200 pixels but wish I had used a higher resolution so that I could zoom in without having to scale it and, hence, losing quality. This is mastered to 1280×720 pixels and the original video zoomed to 200%.
