The Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne, Australia

The Shot

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


- Tonemapped generated HDR using detail enhancer option


- Added 1 layer effect of 'curves' to increase the contrast
- Added 1 layer effect mask of 'saturation' (yellows) to decrease the tone of the building
- Added 1 layer effect mask of 'saturation' (blue & yellows) to adjust the tone of the sky
- Added 1 layer effect mask of 'saturation' (greens) to lighten the grass
- Blended a 0 EV single tonemapped hdr shot to correct the flag movement
- Applied 'free transform' to correct any wide angle distortion
- Used 'unsharp mask' (as always) on the background layer


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