photoblog image Inside Tram of Ostrava

Inside Tram of Ostrava


Made during my business trip to Ostrava, Czech Republic. The last day we had some time to visit the city. This was the tram heading for the mine museum. It was pouring all morning.

Many years ago Ostrava was famous for its (mainly steal) mines. Now most of them are abandoned. In the best case they are used as great location for Hollywood productions.


TECH-INFO: I took 3 RAW shots (each a stop difference) while the tram stopped for a moment (like a red traffic light). After RAW procession in DxO Optics Pro, I merged (to HDR) and aligned them in Photoshop. Some perspective correction is done in the latter program. For tone-mapping I used Photomatix Pro and I finished the image in Photoshop by tweaking contrasts (masked adjustment layers of the curves tool) and the colors (selective color tool).

Fantastic Paul, love the detail and colour saturation
Superbly done Paul....clearly not taken during the rush hour!
Fantastic!! I love the nearly washed out colours
I do like this Paul, well worth all that processing a lot of which I must admit is out of my abilities.
The processing gives it a very techno appearance, Paul.
one of your very finest Paulsmile
