La Tour d'Eiffel - Paris, France (HDR)
Before and after
Pics to play with
The story of this photo:
This is an HDR shot of the Eiffel Tower in Paris as it is seen from the Palais de Chaillot, one of the most favorite spots to photograph the Eiffel Tower. Therefore, this place is quite busy on a sunny day like this and you have to fight for your one minute in the right spot – which I did.
Take a look at my “HDR Cookbook”! It contains some more information on my techniques.
How it was tonemapped:
> HDR created from JPEG files (wasn’t shooting raw at that time)
> Photomatix version 3.1 (Detail Enhancer)
How it was post-processed:
> Post-processing was done in Photoshop
> Saturation and levels adjustment layers on the sky the tower and the ground separately
> Noise reduction on the sky
> Sharpening using the high-pass filter [details]
