Bank Station Tomorrow Today
This is one of the shots I took on my last day trip to London in June.
This is the Travelator at Bank Underground Station
The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle at 11mm and ISO 800 for a faster shutter speed.
Outputted in Photomatix to Exposure Fusion natural setting with adjustments.
First the minus 2 EV layer was copied in, excluded with a black layer mask and then a white brush used to reduce the highlight in the roof lights
Detail was brought back in with Topaz adjust with vibrant presets group with dramatic 2 preset with adjustments. Some areas, mainly highlights were excluded from the effect by applying Topaz on a duplicate layer with a layer mask.
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 53 amount and 53 radius. A mask was used to partly exclude the effect from highlights.
The healing brush content aware was used for tidy up.
