Seattle Chinatown Gate at Sunset - HDR
This picture was shot on a tripod with three exposures (-2..0..+2 EV). I used Photomatix to create the HDR with tone mapping and detail enhanced. I increased the overall saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. Curve adjustment to increase the overall contrast. 1 layer mask to increase contrast in the sky. 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.
On the drive back from Vancouver BC, we stopped for dinner in Seattle Chinatown. But before that, I had to capture this sunset view by the Chinatown gate.
