Misty Sussex Morning by Train
This shot was taken early on a Saturday morning as the train crossed over the River Arun near the village of Ford in West Sussex. I took it on the way to London on one of my Olympics trips. The carriage was quite empty as it was not long after leaving the start at the Bognor Regis terminus
The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Samyang 8mm fisheye lens at f8.
HDR processing produced too much noise so images were blended manually with layers. The view out the window was at -2 EV. The inside was at 0EV after the train had moved on slightly but this did not matter as the outside was masked off.
Detail was brought back in with Topaz adjust with vibrant presets group with Crisp preset with adjustments. Some highlight areas were excluded from the effect by applying Topaz on a duplicate layer with a layer mask.
Topas was again applied with HDR presets group using Heavy Pop Smooth preset.
Vibrance increased 58 points.
Layers flattened before going on to sharpening.
First 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 49 amount and 49 radius. A mask was used to partly exclude the effect from highlights.
Tidy up with the clone tool and dust and scratches filter used for remaining noise.
BEFORE AND AFTER
Below are the Before and After images. First the original exposure and then the final result.
Original at 0EV
