About

 

180° panoramic shot from the 'Grote Markt' or 'Grand Place' in Brussels.

 

The shot

 

10x Single shots at -2/3EV in RAW/ISO100 at f/8 using the Sigma 10-20mm lens, on a tripod.

I used -2/3 EV to be sure to have enough details in the sky for the tonemapping process.

 

Photomatix

 

Tonemapped using the detail enhancer.

 

Photoshop

 

° Cylindrical stitching.

° Shadows & Highlights

° Extra blue saturation + less lightness.

° Extra brightness.

° Curves on red channel.

° Desaturation of the reds

° High pass sharpening ( See here for description )

with a mask to not sharpen the noisy sky.

° Noise reduction with mask to block out everything but the sky.

 

Music

 

dEUS - Slow [CD:Vantage Point]
