Highest Position - Explore #27 | 05.02.2009 (Thank u all very very much!)

 

Thanks everyone for your kind words yesterday! However I'm still feeling just as crooked tho LOL! Neh.. just kiddin' Honestly i'm feeling much better i think... tired & weak ..that's normal for me :P I guess its not that bad to the extend that i can't get out of bed to go to work & post a shot :)) Maybe the only problem i've now is mucus dripping everywhere on the keyboard as i'm typing this.. not sure if this is health hazard or serious illness LMAO! I most probably will have a good rest over the weekend & therefore no post.

 

Have an enjoyable Friday ahead everyone!!

About

 

The Moonta Bay Jetty at Yorke Peninsula, South Australia

 

The Shot

 

Standard 3 exposure shot (+2..0..-2 EV) with tripod 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' (blues) to slightly enhance the tone of the sky

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

- Applied noise reduction mostly on the foreground

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