Going Curvy and Crazy :: HDR

Highest Position - Explore #9 | 26.08.2008 (Thank you all always! :))

 

Whenever I post several Melbourne shots straight in a row, I feel I’ve let down my sweet ole Adelaide haha! As a very fair person I am & always will be (does that make you want to puke or lose your appetite? if so, please go ahead :P), here’s one shot I took on my birthday in Glenelg in Adelaide after my dinner. Honestly speaking… walking around with mates taking photos was already one of the best gift I’ve but of coz who is going to say that’s enough present haha!..not me :P Perhaps a Nikon D300 or Canon 5D might just make my day LOL! Hope I get to see another daylight after saying this :D

About

 

The Curvy Sculpture Near Glenelg Beach

 

The Shot

 

Standard 3 exposure shot (+2..0..-2 EV) taken handheld using Sigma DC HSM 10-20mm lens

 

Photomatix

 

- Tonemapped generated HDR using detail enhancer option

 

Photoshop

 

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'curves' to increase the contrast

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (blues) to slightly increase the tone of some part of sky

- Added 1 layer mask effect of ‘saturation’ (yellows) to increase the impact of sunset

- Used 'unsharp mask' (as always) on the background layer
