    Default My world through 10mm

    Got the Sigma 10-20mm from a fellow CSer, having fun with it on my 400D. Really love it at its widest! Just like to share some shots when i brought my camera around shooting places in my daily life.

    Please pardon my poor shots and extensive PP, which i like to apply unreservedly to my photos. Sometimes makes the photos rather unreal i guess C&Cs welcome, do help me to improve as i'm eagerly waiting to bring this setup on my honeymoon to Alaska...

    Photo #1 - At a carpark beside my place


    Photo #2 - View from the carpark to the sky


    Photo #3 - View from the carpark to opposite block


    Photo #4 - Stairway inside the carpark

    Hi deklan,

    Sorry for taking so long to reply. Didn't get much response to this thread so i thought it died. haha

    Yes i remember. this is actually a HDR picture without the characteristic dynamic range. Not much photoshop for this one as the final output was quite what i wanted. Might be too yellowish for some, but it has a sunset and warm/hot feel which i felt suited the construction and industries (reclaimation/port/warehousing etc) depicted.
    Program used is photomatix pro. Here are the steps:

    took 3 exposures using bracketing (can't remember +-1/3 stop or +-1 stop)




    generated a HDR using the 3 photos in photomatix with the following settings:


    tone mapped with the following settings:


    Photoshop was just used for borders and signature/title.

    Hope this is useful!

    Took another shot when i went tomb sweeping recently. had to help out so didn't take many shots. this picture is the only decent one of the lot.



    in retrospect i guess i should have moved a few rows back so that the path will lead straight to the rising sun?
