Took this shot from a carpark roof top in Chinatown. Showing the contrast of old shophouses along chinatown against the skyscrapers in CBD. This is my first HDR, please comment if it is done correctly. Thanks!
i took 2 shots.. one to expose for the CBD, one to expose for the shophouses. I used ps cs2 under File> Automate> HDR to do this. single exposure will either over expose the shophouse or under expose the CBD.
may i know which part of the picture is distorted or tilt?
ah. probably taken at a later timing than i thought though.
i find that photomatix is better than cs2 for hdr. almost every magazine i have read addressing the issue also agrees with this, though they also agree that ps cs2 takes a less "artificial" approach when it comes to reproducing colors.
have taken the liberty of circling the areas where it is very apparent, hope you do not mind
picture after correction and crop, apologies about the signature
I think the background could be brighter, the foreground is too bright which forces us to focus on the front however there is nothing really worthy of viewing in front. Cant really figure out what is the point of interest in the photo. Just my 2 cents worth.
One tip I was given by a friend is to take nightshots of the CDB near the end of the month when a lot of people have to work overtime for month-end closing. May get a more spectacular lighting of the office towers. Just my 2 cents.
