Roman Baths Night View
This is an image of the Roman Baths in Bath, UK with Bath Abbey in the background. This is a shot from the archives I got round to processing from 2011.
The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 12mm. 3 raw images 2EV spacing. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.
Topaz adjust was used with vibrant presets group with crisp preset to bring in a more detail.
General adjustments in levels to enhance excluding highlights with a mask.
Overall contrast was increased.
Vibrance was decreased slightly.
Saturation reds was decreased for a more natural look.
Verticals were straightened using filter-Lens Correction-Custom and then Vertical Perspective slider
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 40 amount and 40 radius.
