Challenge: Benches (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-1D Mark IIn
Lens: Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye
Location: Sagamihara Japan
Date: Nov 22, 2008
Aperture: f/22
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/4 sec.
Galleries: Nature
Date Uploaded: Nov 22, 2008

The colors in this photo are all f-'d up. The golden yellow trees receiving direct sunlight in the left of my photo were all blown out. I tried doing some minor HDR, but there were too many elements. So I just used about four layers from two photos. One background layer from a dark photo where the yellow trees weren't so blown out, one background layer from the original to give me the roof, one bench layer from the original, and one layer of leaves on the ground from the original file.

editing tools used:
raw tools
unsharp mask
soft brush on a layer mask to blend the two backgrounds by the yellow trees
smart sharpen
save for web

I think thats all of it. Hope this doesn't suck to bad.

The upper half of the image is interesting. The lower half not so much.

Odd points of view can seem mannered but this one works well. I like the competing natural and man made patterns.
