photoblog image Town as a Little World

Town as a Little World

 

This half of the town Sluis, in South of Holland, near the Belgium border. Many Belgians go for shopping over there because prices are (much) cheaper (is typical for Holland). During the Christmas period they have setup a ferris wheel on market in the center. Enjoy the view!

 

 

TECH-INFO: a fish eye lens made it easy to capture the whole and fantastic view. After RAW conversion in DxO Optics Pro (I turned off the geometric corrections otherwise I would loose the fish eye look), I boosted the contrast in Photoshop, followed by some desaturation with the B/W tool and at the end I added very strong vignetting which gives the image a kind of circular fish eye look.

I went to Sluis last year and loved it, even bought the mug with 'I love Sluis' to prove it.
