Orbit Tower Fisheyed
Another shot from the Olympics using my Fisheye Lens. This is of the ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower in front of the Olympic Stadium. The Tower is a 115-metre-high (377 ft) sculpture and observation tower. It is the UK's tallest sculpture.
The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Samyang 8mm fisheye lens at f8.
Outputted in Photomatix to Detail Enhancer. Click the Camera name top right on Flickr for this image for Exif details and the settings used.
Detail was brought back in with Topaz adjust with Vibrance preset group, Colour Blast Preset with adjustments.
The image was enhanced in Levels.
Hue Saturation blues used to reduce blue saturation a little in the sky.
Hue Saturation layer reds was used to bring up reds in the centre using a layer mask to apply only to that area.
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 42 amount and 52 radius. The effect was excluded from highlight areas in the sky with a layer mask.
Clone tool used to remove part of a fence from the bottom left corner and extend the legs. Parts of the sky were also tidied up.
