For a change I posted something more geometric. These bows are located in Barcelona, between the sea and the column of Columbus, in the neighborhood of the famous street Las Ramblas. I was taking the touristic bus, more specific: the blue line. Theses buses are really great and let you visit everything in this great cultural city.
TECH-INFO: while the bus stopped in the traffic I shot a sequence of 5 JPGs, all hand held, each a stop difference. In fact I did that twice. I used the HDR merge function in Photoshop to align and merge them. It only worked with the first sequence. During capturing the second one I moved too much between the images. In Photomatrix I toned mapped the HDR file to get a natural look. Thanks to the HDR technique, the high lights are on the metal are only a thin border while you still can see lots of detail on the bottom side of the bows. Afterwards I enhanced contrast of the bows and sky separately in Photoshop using the curves tool and selective color tool. The latter was to make the sky a bit more blue. Finally Noise Ninja was used, it made the sky more smooth.
SLIDESHOW: until today I didn't notice but Shutterchange has a slideshow function. Have look at the top right corner of the page. It's very cool.
