Hotel Night Pool

Hotel Night Pool
The Shot

For this picture I was staying at Playa Blanca at a 5 Star Hotel as a special treat for a couple of nights. This is the Hotel Volcan which is very photogenic as well as the adjoining Marina.

The picture was taken on a Tripod with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 20 mm. 3 raw images 2EV spacing. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.

Photomatix

Outputted in Photomatix to detail enhancer. Click the Camera name top right for Exif details and the settings.

Photoshop

Topaz adjust used with my own settings to suit to bring back detail. Done with a duplicate layer and layer mask used to exclude the pool.

The -2EV image was brought in as a new layer and applied with a brush using a layer mask to the highlight areas.

General adjustments in levels and curves to enhance.

Vibrance layer increase 30 points.

Hue saturation layer blues saturation decreased to tone this down and green saturation increased to bring out
foliage.

Noiseware Pro

Duplicate layer with mask to apply extra sharpening and contrast with amount 52 and radius 52 using Unsharp mask (Clarity Effect)
