or not :) its your decision :). This is one of those more “artistic” shots I sometimes do :). I took it inside the tower of The Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul in Brno. This small passage connects the two towers of the church. At that time I was the only one there, so I could take this shot.
I brightened the center, darkened the corners and converted to B&W, so the main focus is on the leading lines, which hopefully, should pull you eyes directly into the photo.
HDR from three shots, taken with Canon 450D with Sigma 10-20mm lens, from a tripod
Since in my todays post I also mention the HDR processing steps, I though I also show the original brackets :) So here they are:
Also the Photomatix setting I used were: Strength 86, Color Saturation 70, Luminosity 2.5, Microcontrast 5.9 and Smoothing at 3.2. All other settings at default.
Green house in Brno
This is my favorite house in Brno. Each time I’m there I have to take few pictures of it :). They are currently restoring it, so lets hope it keeps this nice, classic look.
I vent quite light on the post-processing on this one. All I did, is they I combined the shots in Photomatix, and then removed noise in the sky and added a little more detail with Tonal Contrast in Color Effects Pro (but only at around 30% opacity). A little more contrast before the export and thats all :) I wanted a more realistic, not oversaturated look. I think I quite succeeded :)
HDR from three shots, taken with Canon 450D with Sigma 10-20mm lens, from a tripod. Photo taken at Brno, Czech Republic
I took this photo few months ago, while visiting Brno. I go there from time to time, as it’s not far from Bratislava, and they cook great Czech food in the pubs there :). This photo was taken from the top of the St. Peter and Paul’s Cathedral. I had quite a luck here, as I was alone there at that time :). It’s a really small space, I had problems standing next to my tripod :)
