De Plas - Sunset (with fisheye)
Best viewed in LARGE.
Sunset at 'De plas' Hombeek, Mechelen - Belgium
4 exposures HDR [-2,0,2,3EV] in RAW/ISO100 at AV f/23 on a tripod using the Sigma 10mm fisheye lens.
I put my tripod in the water to avoid having anything of the border of the lake in the shot.
Curves for extra contrast.
Some extra saturation on yellow and red.
Some extra saturation on blue + darkened.
Some desaturation on the greens.
A bit of dodging on the clouds.
Made a copy of the layer and added a gaussion blur of 9.
Put a mask on that layer to hide-all, brushed the top of the trees back in with a 50% opaque brush.
All comments, criticism and tips for improvements are ( as always ) welcome.
