Down the Memory Lane of Victor Harbor Causeway :: BW | HDR

I'm definitely not in the right state of mind tonight as you can see! :P WTF?!?! BW? knock knock...hello anybody home? haha! Well, that's not really my style!as u know :P Yes i think i'm going a bit nuts here but seriously I promise more colours in my next post alrite. I actually don't intend to post tonight but might as well squeeze one in to show face ;) Who knows i might disappear again for a week or even a month :D Anyway life has been pretty busy for me lately so in turn it results in my downtime in flickr which then leads to downsizing on my posting too :) let's hope things will change for a better but if i can manage even 2 or 3 posts a week, i would be laughing my ass off :D In the meantime take care & good nite for now!

About

 

The Victor Harbor Causeway, South Australia

 

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 2 layer mask effect of 'curves' to adjust the contrast for the sky & water

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (master) to turn image into BW

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'levels' to decrease the overall brightness by the sunlight

- Applied dodging to further enhance the sunrays

- Blended in a tonemapped single tonemapped (0 EV) shot to remove ppl walking by

- Applied noise reduction

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