St Saviour's Cathedral, Goulburn :: HDR

Highest Position - Explore #44 | 24.01.2009 (thankin' all of u!! :D)

 

With this Sunday morning churchy shot, i shall conclude this week's saga of posting all vertical shots :D Thanks heaps for going through those old shots with me. I still have quite a num of them left but I will start mixing them with the landscape ones as i go along. Also, if u've noticed, i'm back to posting in the morning rather than in the middle of the night :P i guess i'm more used to it. Hope you've a great weekend & have great fun everyone!!

 

Please do not post any invites from now on :) greatly appreciate the thoughts!

The Shot

 

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

 

Photomatix

 

- Tonemapped generated HDR using detail enhancer option

 

Photoshop

 

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

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (master) to slight increase overall tone

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (yellows) to decrease the lightness of stone wall

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (blues) to adjust the tone of the sky

- Applied 'free transform' to correct the verticals of the structure

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