4th of July Fireworks in Downtown Portland Oregon Waterfront 3
This image was shot on a tripod in Bulb Mode with one long exposure in RAW using a black card to block out exposures between fireworks. Processed the RAW file using Photoshop CS5. I increased the overall saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. Curve adjustment to increase the overall contrast. 1 layer mask in soft light mode at 50% gray, using brush tool to lighten and darken some areas of the image, to bring out details. Used Nik Sharpener Pro to sharpen image.
My third upload of the 4th of July fireworks display with Portland Oregon downtown skyline from Eastbank Esplanade. The long exposure in bulb mode and using a black card allowed for multiple fireworks exposures in one frame. For more images of the festivities please go to My Facebook.
