Traffic Trails to Westminster
This viewpoint is on Broad Sanctuary Road next to Westminster Abbey approaching Parliament Square.
The picture is made up of 3 images layered using layer blend modes and some use of layer masks. The light trail on the left comes from 2 images and the one on the right from one image. Each image was 8 to 10 seconds.
The originals of the 3 images used are as follows-
The pictures were taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 17mm. Taken with a tripod in RAW. The image were first processed in Camera Raw with exposure adjustments, recovery of highlights and clarity.
I used Topaz HDR to even up lighting and then Topaz DeNoise. Big Ben was straightened using filter-lens correction-custom-vertical correction and crop. The picture was given more punch using a clarity effect using unsharp mask with settings of 29 amount and 29 radius
