Keillers Park HDR (remake)

LOBB (Large on black background)


Remake of a shot I took April 1st 2009.


Wanted to get a warmer feeling, less halos and more of a mood going on it this edit.

Also, I wanted to see if I had evolved in my postprocessing skills anything.

I think I have, but I'll let you be the judge of that.


The post-processing was:

1. Open in Lightroom, convert to DNG.

2. Merge to HDR in Photoshop.

3. Tonemap in Photomatix.

4. De-noise and sharpen in Photoshop.

5. Crop and straighten horizon and some exposure-corrections in Lightroom.

6. Add framing and name in Photoshop.

7. Save as 8bit jpeg :-(


Shot with a Nikon D300 and a 16-85/3,5-5,6 lense.

ISO100 on f/3.5 @ 16mm (equiv. to 24mm on 35mm film).
