Watch the "High-definition Making of..." video to see how this photo was produced!


The story of this photo:

This was one of the last shots from our trip to Thailand in March. Bangkok international airport has a nice architecture which I was trying to capture here. Unfortunately, I did not bracket this shot. I was probably too tired from the whole trip. ;-) Therefore, I had to resort to a pseudo HDR here.




Take a look at my "HDR Cookbook"! It contains some more information on my techniques.


How it was shot:

> Taken handheld [details]

> A single RAW file

> Camera: Nikon D90

> Lens: Sigma 10-20mm F3,5 EX DC HSM

> Details can be found here


How it was tonemapped:

> Preparation: developed the RAW file with ACR (including CA reduction) [details]

> Reduce the chromatic aberration

> Created three exposures (0, -2, +2 ev)

> Tone mapping: Photomatix Pro 4.0 (Detail Enhancer)


How it was post-processed:

> Post-processing was done in Photoshop

> Topaz Adjust on the entire image to get back the colors and the details [details]

> Topaz Denoise [details]

> Saturation layer on the orange parts of the roof (master)

> Saturation layer on the metal elements (master)

> Curves layer on the metal elements (increased reflective look)

> Global saturation and levels layer to fine-tune the colors and contrast

> Sharpening using the high-pass filter [details]

> Watermarking
