Happy Sunday to most who are on the other side of the world! For me, its almost the end of Sunday here & i'm feeling real sad for work tomorrow :'( Nonetheless i've managed to squeeze out a churchy shot for today just before bedtime :) I've done a different treatment from my usual style for this... very subtle overall just to make this beautiful pipes shine so let's hope this works well :))Pls take care & have a wonderful remaining weekend ahead! Cheers & good nite!

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' (master) to decrease the tone surrounding the pipes

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

- Applied 'free transform (distort)' to correct the horizontals

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