Eurostar High Speed to London
This image was taken last July on my return from Paris on the Eurostar. The buffet car was perfect for HDR
The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10 mm. One RAW image was opened in Photoshop Camera RAW first to create 2 extra exposures for HDR at 2EV separation. Each image was noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs. The images were tonemapped for HDR using Photomatix and Detail Enhancer
Topaz adjust was used to bring in a more detail and a layer mask was used to exclude the effect from the highlights.
The 0EV image was copied in, excluded with a layer mask and used to lighten the view through one window.
The +2EV image was copied in, excluded with a layer mask and used to brighten some areas inside.
The -2EV image was copied in, excluded with a layer mask and used to reduce highlights in some areas.
Levels were used to increase overall brightness with a layer mask used to exclude highlights.
Vibrance was increased slightly by 33 points.
Yellows saturation increased to brighten the overhead lights.
Layers flattened before going on to sharpening.
Duplicate layer Noiseware Pro and a little sharpening.
Second duplicate layer with mask to apply extra contrast with low amount and high radius using Unsharp mask (Clarity Effect) The settings were 70 amount and 70 radius. This quite noticeably brought up the shine in the carriage. A layer mask was used to exclude this effect from highlights.
The healing tool was used to tidy up some parts.

Below are the Before and After images. First the original. Then the tonemapped image and then the final result.
