In Case of an Emergency


Shot in Blankenberge, a city at the Belgian cost. This is the back side view apartment buildings. Normally you cannot see them but on the place where I was standing the building got destructed (in order to make a new one). I'm passing by car almost daily so it draw my attention. The stairs, used only in case of emergencies look very fascinating to me. One day I took my camera and entered the building site.


TECH-INFO: I took 5 shots hand-held to merge them for making a HDR file. First the pictures were raw converted in DxO Optics Pro for lens corrections. Photoshop merged and aligned them into one HDR. The HDR file got lines and perspective straightening. It's also heavily cropped (mainly the left and right parts) into a square format. Afterwards I tone-mapped it in Photomatix Pro to get a 16 bit TIFF result. At end I enhanced contrasts of several areas in Photoshop.

How do you manage to make a boring subject look good. Well Done.
Imagine trying to get down that lot in a fire smile Amazing processing, Paul - how long did that take you? I can't imagine how you get five handheld shots aligned!
