Close to the palace of justice there's a metal bridge running towards an elevator, there is a little platform in front of the elevator which gives a nice view over Brussels.


The shot


Put my tripod as close to the glass a possible, with one leg over the railing, look closely and you can see the tripod leg and the railing as well as my shadow. Pointed a bit down to get the nice rounded horizon so it looks like we are living on a ball, oh we are?-)


Standard 3 exposures [-2,0,+2 EV] in RAW/ISO100 at f/13 on a tripod using the Sigma 10mm fisheye.




Tonemapped using the detail enhancer.




° A very tiny curves.

° A dash of extra overal saturation.

° A bit more blue saturation and less lightness.

° Some dodging to emphasize the glass reflections in the sky so that they really look like that.

° An unsharp mask (200/2.1/20).




All comments, criticism and tips for improvements are ( as always ) welcome.
