The Shot

Another futuristic image from La Defense Paris and perhaps a few more bridges between buildings and some flying cars would make it complete! The viewpoint deserves to be better known but is just off the main Tourist areas and is difficult to find on the map with a lot of paths in the area. See my Blog for directions. It is taken at the same location as another shot taken in April but a little further along the footbridge.

The picture was taken with a Tripod with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10mm. The image was opened in Camera Raw and 3 additional images were created at +2EV and -2Ev for a “false HDR” with each image having Noiseware Pro applied. A Photoshop action I had saved was used to create the extra images automatically. The images were saved as tiffs.

The HDR was created using Photomatix and additional enhancements in Topaz adjust and adjustment layers in Photoshop. The before and after images on my Blog show a big difference.

Full details of the processing together with before and after images are on my Blog see Edwin Jones Photography Blog
