Vertigo at the Atrium
This is another shot taken at the Peter Jones Department Store in Sloane Square. I had not been there before and I was surprised to find this amazing Atrium on top of the weird looking spiral staircase in the previous shot. The escalators reminded me a little of the ones inside the Lloyds building. BTW I didn’t actually feel any vertigo, just felt like the right title.
The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens at 10 mm.. 3 raw images 2EV spacing. The images were opened in Photoshop first and each image saved as tiffs. HDR processing was in Photomatix using Fusion Real Estate for a natural look. The software did a good job of removing the slight movement of the people between exposures
The picture was enhanced with Topaz adjust and Denoise. Further editing was done in Photoshop for levels, contrast and brightness.
Below is the original image at 0EV of the 3 brackets and then the final image after processing.
