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' (blues) to adjust the lightness of the sky

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (reds & yellows) to tone down the orangey roof

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (reds & magentas) to remove the ghost artifacts

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




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