The Aboriginal Art of the Parliament House, Canberra :: HDR

As i'm sitting here in front of my screen, i feel my body is about to split open... my head is spinning..can't explain how exhausted this week has been!


Anyway, keep it short :) Many thanks for all your visits & comments.. i really appreciate them as i know my time can never be repaid back to you for that. I am still very busy & unable to visit as much as i could therefore please.. don't have to comment or fave. I'm posting just for the sake of posting be it ugly or nice :P I'm more afraid that my shots in my archives are all starting to grow mouldy. Have a wonderful weekend! lots of hugs!!

The Parliament House in Canberra, Australia


The Shot


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




- Tonemapped generated HDR using detail enhancer option




- Added 2 layer mask effect of 'curves' for the floor & the sky

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation'(reds) to decrease the redness of the flooring

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation'(yellows) to decrease the tone of the lightings

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

- Applied noise reduction

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




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