photoblog image Business Center in Warsaw

Business Center in Warsaw


Taken in the business center in Warsaw, in Poland, a while after the sunset.


TECH-INFO: 5 RAW files with each a stop difference. I used a higher ISO to shoot faster because people were passing on the pavement or walking in and out the building. 5 shots was actually not enough to capture the full range of light, though enough for the image. First I developed the RAW files in DxO Optics Pro into 7 JPGs. The darkest picture is used to underexpose a few times to restore the highlights as much as possible; so one RAW produced 3 JPG's, the rest each one. The result was a bit noisy (I was surprised), so I had to clean up the sky and parts of the building with noise ninja. Afterwards I enhanced colors and contrast in Photoshop. At the end some vignetting is added.

mate, l love the vibrancy of this image
Very modern and colourful.
Great image of crass commercialism, Paul - I assume you had a tripod for all those exposures.
