About

 

This is my 21st upload from our trip to Paris, yes Frank still a few to come ;)

 

This is a view from on the bridge Pont Neuf over the river Seine, at the far left you

can see the Louvre museum.

 

The shot

 

Standard 3 exposure HDR [-2,0,+2Ev] in RAW/ISO100 at f/7 using the Sigma 10-20mm lens, on a tripod.

 

Photomatix

 

Tonemapped using the detail enhancer.

 

Photoshop

 

° Shadow & Highlights

° Curves

° Noise reduction in the sky using a mask taken from the blue channel and changed with

levels and manually touched up.

° Desaturation of the blues and an extra Curves on the blues.

° Repaired the movement of the boat under the bridge and the momevent of the car

lights by loading the 0Ev shot, adjusting it until the colours almost matched, copied it as

a layer, added a mask to this layer, made the mask black and painted the needed parts

back in using a white brush in the mask.
