Exhibit Hall Manrique Collection Lanzarote
The Shot

This shot was taken on a visit to the Cesar Manrique House in Lanzarote and shows the Exhibit hall of his paintings.

I had to wait about 5 minutes for the Hall to be clear of people. Tripods are not allowed but there was enough light there for ISO 400 to be sufficient for short enough shutter speeds.

The picture was taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10mm. Taken handheld. 3 raw images 2EV spacing.


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


General adjustments in levels and curves to enhance with layer masks to exclude the highlights.

Brightness contrast layer with a mask used to increase brightness in some darker areas

Vibrance layer increase 42 points

The +2EV layer was brought back in with a mask to brighten up the rocks in the centre.

Layers flattened before going on to sharpening

First duplicate layer Noiseware Pro and a little sharpening.

Second duplicate layer for clarity effect using Unsharp mask with settings of amount 62 and radius 62

Second duplicate layer Topaz Adjust using HDR presets, pop 2with some adjustments. A layer mask was used to apply this mainly to the floor.

Healing brush with Content aware and clone stamp was used to tidy up some areas.
