The Field of Poppies, Tasmania :: HDR

Please do not feel obliged to comment or fave as I am not able to reciprocate due to limited flickr time.Thanks heaps for your support & visits still! :)


Its my short break at work now so I will do with a quick post. This is the first time I've seen acres & acres of white poppies in tassie. They are extremely beautiful to look at but according to one of the farm owner, these poppies are so highly potent.. they can kill a person if they pluck just a small handful to make heroine out of it. No wonder trespasser will be prosecuted! Hope everyone is doing well!

The Shot


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




- Tonemapped generated HDR using detail enhancer option




- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'curves' to increase the overall contrast

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

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

- Used spot healing tool to remove stained spots in the sky

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