As grandiose as my last post is I think this shot has actually garnishes more of my attention. It did while composing the scene and it does now, even after processing. Don’t know if it’s the simplicity; the lighting; the subject or a combination of all three? What do you think? Am I seeing things?
From a processing standpoint this scene was a pain in the *ss to make presentable. Lighting from the front doors cast such a nasty, yellow color on the wall that I almost trashed the originals. After spending an unsuccessful 40 minutes trying to remove that cast I decided to add a brownish texture layer with the help of Elements 10 and although it doesn’t quite emulate the actual scene, it comes pretty close.
3 shot HDR from shots ranging from 4 to 30 seconds, blended in Photomatix and finished in Elements 10 and Lightroom
