14-25mm@19mm, f/6.3 by Vineet Suthan
Today was cloudy and decided to have brunch from Intercontinental Hotel. I had come to this place last month but i did not bring my DSLR then. I had an idea how the place looked and i only wished i could have shot this during the sunset or the blue hour. This HDR was shot handheld and i am beginning to love the sound of the Nikon D3s which i really missed in D800.
How the HDR photos were shot
- Taken Tripod
- Five exposures
- Camera: Nikon D800
- Lens: Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8
How the HDR image was tonemapped
- Processed the images as Raw File in Photomatix
- Changed the following sliders to get the tone mapped image-Strength, Color Saturation, Luminosity and Detailed Contrast.
- Saved the resulting image as TIFF images
How the tonemapped image was post-processed
- The Resulting tone-mapped Tiff Image was then opened in Camera Raw
- Changed the following settings-Contrast, Highlights, Shadows, Blacks, Whites
- Resulting File then opened in Photoshop
- Topaz Adjust as mask for details in buildings
- Nik Color Efex pro
- Applied noise reduction (Imagenomic Noiseware)
