All Dressed Up For Easter - HDR Topaz Adjust

This picture was shot handheld with three exposures (-2..0..+2EV). I used Photomatix to create the HDR with tonemapping and detail enhanced. I increased the red and yellow saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. Shadow/Highlights and Curve adjustments were also used, to bring out the detail and increase the overall contrast. Topaz Adjust plugin, using the Crisp preset, was used to finalize the look.


We were having our Easter Sunday brunch buffet at the Heathman Restaurant & Bar in downtown Portland, Oregon. We saw these ladies on our way out. All dressed up and with Easter bonnets, I had to take a photo of them. They managed to stay real still for me to get the three-exposure shots that I needed.
