Philly Fished #2

Same photo as the one immediately before this one but the sky is normal. The modern Philadelphia architecture skyline looks very cool to me, taking on a different look depending upon the time of day, light quality etc. With a fisheye, it takes on a bit of a surreal character. Here is a fisheyed Philly shot vibrant to the max like the old Velvia film look.


Nikon D300

10.5mm fisheye lens

ISO 250


1/200 second


IN CS5 I selected each building, and for each, made a layer mask, added vibrance and enhanced in selective color, and used a curve adjustment for each to balance the light and refine the midtones.
