Starship Corridor Southwark
This is another shot from my last London Day Trip. This was taken at Southwark on the Jubilee Line. Each station on the line is different but all with a futuristic look and this one perhaps most of all.
The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Sony 10-20mm wide angle lens at 10mm. I took 3 pictures for HDR. As Tripods are not allowed I used ISO 800 to get a fast enough shutter speed of 1/30 second for the 0EV shot.
The 3 images at 2EV separation were outputted in Photomatix detail enhancer.
First the OEV and minus 2 EV images were brought back in as new layers with layer masks and applied with brush strokes on the mask only to highlights to bring these down.
Topaz adjust was used with vibrant presets group with clarity preset to bring in more detail. The effect was applied on a layer with a layer mask which I used to exclude some of the highlights from the enhancement.
Light was brought up with levels with highlights excluded with a layer mask..
Contrast increased a little.
Vibrance decreased a little.
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 39 amount and 39 radius. A layer mask was used to exclude this effect from some highlights and parts of the ceiling.
The clone tool was used for tidy up.
BEFORE AND AFTER
Below are the Before and After images. First the original. Then the tonemapped image and then the final result.
