Waiting Passenger London Underground
This shot was taken on my latest day trip to London which included some London underground shots. This one was the Central Line at Tottenham Court Road.
The picture was taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle lens at 10mm.
3 raw images were taken at 2EV spacing. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs. The picture was taken handheld at 1/5 of a second.
The 3 images at 2EV separation were outputted in Photomatix detail enhancer with fusion natural settings
First adjusted in Topaz vibrant clarity with adjustments to suit and a layer mask to part exclude from some areas including all of the roof.
General adjustments in levels to enhance with layer mask to exclude the highlight areas
Vibrance layer was increased by 10 points.
Colour balance adjustment layer used to to warm up the image.
Layers flattened before going on to sharpening.
Duplicate layer Noiseware Pro and a little sharpening.
Second duplicate layer with mask to apply extra sharpening and contrast with low amount and high radius using Unsharp mask (Clarity Effect) The settings were 46 amount and 46 radius. A layer mask was used to exclude this effect from some highlights.
Heal and clone tools used for tidy up.
The crop tool was used for better composition and to remove distracting areas including the lights.
