Budapest

A gypsy on the Chain Bridge in Budapest. Turns out I gave the old lady 1/2 Euro and kept shooting photos. At one point she got all upset and looked up. Not an old lady at all. Sigh.

 

The Shots:

- f20, 18mm, 1/500, 1/125, 1/30.

- Waited for the people to be as far as possible, and did not see the bus enter the frame!

 

HDR:

- Photomatix details enhancer

- Painterly preset, with a bit more saturation and details smoothing.

 

Noise Reduction:

- Imagenomics full reduction on the sky.

- Imagenomics landscape preset on the rest.

 

Photoshop:

- Unsharp mask, radius 140.

- Nik Color Efex: Tonal Contrast 20%.
