Good Sunday everyone! No surprise from me.. a churchy post as always on this day! :) Haven't been home much over the weekend therefore will keep this short so i've more time to go round to catch up on your photostream now. Have fun! :D


View LARGE On Black





The Altar at St Paul's Cathedral, Melbourne


The Shot


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




- Tonemapped generated HDR using detail enhancer option




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

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (master) to decrease the tone of the wall

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

- Applied digital blending of another tonemapped hdr (-2EV) to correct the overblown shine on the stained glass

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




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