ONE°15 Marina Club, Sentosa (II) :: HDR

Life is back to those hectic & tiring days for me. Sorry for being pretty quiet last week... when one is tired, I just want to sleep & everything just goes out the windows :D Anyway hope everyone is surviving well! Here's an ultra wide angle shot..so wide & distorted that i feel like its going to pop your eyes with disgust haha!

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 1 layer mask effect of 'curves' to increase the contrast

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'level' to decrease the brightness

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

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

- Used a slight amount of 'unsharp mask' (as always) on the background layer
