I initially intend to post this yesterday but i was too tied up with some work i've facing at this moment & a bit of a bad run of luck lately too (that excludes the crap exam btw :P) haha! oh well, just gotta laugh over it to make myself feel better. I am hardly not at home since early hours of the morning for the past 3 days & was dead tired by the time i came back home. With not much of a choice, i guess i will have to make monday a churchy day instead for once :D Hope you will enjoy this nonetheless. Cheers!

The Shot

 

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

 

Photomatix

 

- Tonemapped generated HDR using detail enhancer option

 

Photoshop

 

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

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (master) to decrease the overall saturation

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (yellows) to correct the lightings at the both side & the flooring

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