I can’t believe I am still posting Melbourne shot after all these while haha! No wonder my folder is full of old photos waiting to see the daylight. Honestly I do have this bad habit of ransackin’ my old folders & if I can pick something to process, then I will be happy & become too lazy to go out for photoshoot :P Nonetheless hope you like this (not that you’ve not seen that before or haven’t u? ;) Happy Hump Day!


View LARGE On Black if you r really keen on the structure :P

The Shot


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




- Tonemapped generated HDR using detail enhancer option




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

- Added 1 layer effect mask of 'saturation' to slightly decrease the overall saturation

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

- Added 1 layer effect mask of 'saturation' (yellows) to enhance the structure

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




All comments, criticism and tips for improvements are (as always) welcome
