I call this picture an HDR although it was not produced with a conventional HDR software but manually merged from three differently developed files. This time, for the first time ever, I used a linear raw conversion which looks a bit flat at first but maintains the highest degree of detail possible. I've used at least fifteen masked curves to bring out contrast and detail in the image. All in all it took me about three hours to process this shot which is not unusual for my approach lately.
On a totally different matter: Is anyone of my visitors from the UK familiar with the magazine "Digital Photographer" ? I'm asking because I contributed some tips about shooting urban night time scenes for their January issue and would like to know your opinion about the quality of the magazine. Anyway, enjoy your week, folks - I know I will. Tomorrow I'm going on a short trip to Catalonia's capitol Barcelona until Friday.
