National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne :: HDR

I don't really quite understand why I took this shot back in 2008 now that I think about it. Maybe there is nothing for me to shoot in Melbourne then haha! Since I have processed it long time ago, I might as well post it... as u know I just love sharing even when things are crap lol!


View LARGE On Black for no reason ...really :)

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' to increase the contrast for the sky

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (yellows) to tone down the sunlight

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (blues) to darken the sky

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (reds) to desaturate the floor

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




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