Oregon Convention Center at Blue Hour - Portland Oregon - HDR

Please click here to view this night scene large!

 

This picture was shot on a tripod with nine exposures (-4..-3..-2..-1..0..+1..+2..+3..+4 EV). I then took another long exposure shot for the light trails of the traffic and digitally blended it into the 9-shot HDR processed image. I used Photomatix to create the HDR with tonemapping and detail enhanced. I increased the overall saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. Curve adjustment to increase the overall contrast. 1 layer mask in soft light mode at 50% gray, using brush tool to lighten and darken some areas of the image, to bring out details. Used Nik Sharpener Pro to sharpen image.

 

Presented in full HDR!

 

Have a great weekend everyone!
