The Dramatic Dam :: HDR

Highest Position - Explore #28 | 12.01.2009 (Thanks always :))))

(Special hugs to Teresa for the first explore update ;D)


As some of you might already know, my second day of the week is still very shithouse at work. Hopefully there will be better outcome later in the week. Fingers crossed! Therefore (most probably) i will be posting old shots this whole week. completely no inspiration do any new processing so here's another one which was randomly picked from my folder by finger pointing :) Hope you will enjoy this still.


View LARGE On Black to be a drama queen! :P





The Dam Somewhere on the Way to Adelaide Hills


The Shot


Standard 3 exposure shot (+2..0..-2 EV) taken handheld 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' (yellows) to enhance the greens at the side

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (yellows) to slightly increase the tone of the sky

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (reds) to slightly decrease the redness of the sky

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




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