Balls of Steel - HDR

This shot was taken in Adelaide main shopping district on a fairly busy Saturday a week ago if i recalled correctly :D Even though the place was fairly packed with shoppers, very kind of them to make space for me to take this shot! Big thanks! I am feeling pretty tired therefore off to bed for me now ;) hope you have a great week ahead! cheers!






The mirror balls @ rundle mall in Adelaide city


The shot


Standard 3 exposures shots (-2..0..+2EV) with tripod using the Canon EF-S 18-55mm lens and a polarized light filter




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

- Added a layer effect of 'saturation' to increase the yellow for the buildings and the reflections

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




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