About

 

2 Ducks at the Adelaide River Torrens

 

The Shot

 

Standard 1 exposure shot (0 EV) taken handheld using the Canon kit lens EF-S 18-55mm lens and polarized light filter

 

Photomatix

 

- Tonemapped generated HDR using single file conversion with detail enhancer option

 

Photoshop

 

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

- Added 1 layer effect of 'saturation' (master) to slightly tone down the whole image

- Applied spot healing to get rid of the dirt spots from the lens

- Applied noise reduction on the water area

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