About

 

Yesterday, saturday the 18th of october we had a Flickr Meetup in Mechelen, big thanks to the organisers and all participants for the most enjoyable day.

 

This is my first upload for that day.

 

A view from the top of Sint Rumbolds tower some 97 meters above ground level, you can see the 'Grote Markt' on the right side and obviously the cross shape of the Cathedral.

 

The shot

 

Standard 3 exposures HDR [-2,0,+2EV] in RAW/ISO100 at f/14 using the Sigma 10mm fisheye lens.

Handheld since there was no plas to put the tripod.

 

Photomatix

 

Tonemapped using the detail enhancer.

 

Photoshop

 

° A small rotation to get the cross 100% straigth.

° Curves to deepend the colours, masked away on the darker areas.

° Curves for extra depth on the clouds, masked away everywhere but the sky.

° Dodging of the midtones on some darker areas.

° Smart sharpen filter.
