Remembering Sunday :: HDR | Vertorama

Highest Position - Explore #45 | 30.08.2008 (Thank you!)

 

This is one challenging vertorama shot which i blend until i wanna cry!!! I managed to conquer this after a few attempts & i'm seriously very over cathedral shot for now haha! This cathedral looks very similar to many other in Australia such as St Mary Cathedral in Sydney. I bet in that era, there was already piracy going around. Someone must have duplicated the design plan like how asia has pirated CDs LOL! & magic! all look very much alike in every aspect! one good thing is at least they have different interior designers haha! This is one of our biggest here in Adelaide & I know our biggest is like a peanut to those coconuts in Europe. Happy Sunday!

4 set of standard 3 exposure shot (+2..0..-2 EV) with tripod using Sigma Lens 10-20mm lens (Total 12 shots)

 

Photomatix

 

- Tonemapped generated HDR using detail enhancer option (batch processing)

 

Photoshop

 

- Manual blending of 4 HDR shots to create vertorama effect

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

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

- Applied dodging on the dark area of the catherdral

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