Colosseum HDR, again!
So, you may remember I posted this shot a while ago of an early morning HDR of the Colosseum.
Alison Shull from ArtLightNow mentioned she’d like to see the original out of camera shots shots. I’d contemplated posting them originally, and since I don’t have much else to show I’ve decided to give them their own post, happy days:
The first 3 are the original shots straight out of the camera with a bit of lens correction applied. The fourth is the end result of the 3 images being combined in Photomatix. After some general slap and tickle, generous contrast and colour adjustments in Photoshop using Nik Efex Viveza and Colour Efex 4 I ended up with my finished image.
Finally, to make this a bit more interesting to people who aren’t too interested in how a finished image comes about, and also because I need something different for the featured image on the home page, here’s another shot from the same session:
I promise, I have no more pictures of the Colosseum to show…….maybe.
