Tower Bridge Exhibition View
This is a different viewpoint of the Thames taken from one of the walkways linking the 2 towers of Tower Bridge high above the roadway. It is accessed as part of the Tower Bridge Exhibition. One nice little touch was that within some of the windows they had little sliding windows with a camera icon next to it. Provision for Photographers instead of bans, well done Tower Bridge!! I took the picture by putting the camera way out through the little window and guessing composition as my camera does not have live view.
The picture was taken with a Sony A700 with a Samyang 8mm fisheye lens. Taken handheld. 3 raw images 2EV spacing. Outputted in Photomatix on fusion real estate settings for a natural look for an HDR. The minus 2EV image was copied in as a new layer and masked off except for the bright areas to tone them down.
I used Topaz Adjust Vibrance sunset dynamic to bring more yellow and oranges into an otherwise far too blue scene.
I used Topaz DeNoise on a duplicate layer with a mask to apply it only to the sky.
The picture was given more punch using a clarity effect using unsharp mask with settings of 36 amount and 36 radius
