Autumn Lake Pulborough

Autumn Lake Pulborough
The Shot

Yesterday after some dull days it was bright and sunny and unseasonably warm. I took the opportunity while on a bicycle ride for some autumn colours shots. This beautiful spot was discovered by accident. I spotted a footpath and decided to walk down it a short way and came across this small lake (large pond) on the edge of Pulbourough. This is just north of the West Sussex Downs about 15 miles north of the south coast of the UK.

Taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 Wide Angle Zoom at 10mm. Taken handheld with auto bracketing for HDR. 3 raw images 2EV spacing. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.

See the comment below for a comparison with the original image before HDR and editing.


Photomatix

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

Photoshop

General adjustments in levels and curves to enhance.

Saturation Adjustment Layer with layer mask, yellows and reds used to increase saturation in the leaves in the foreground area only.

Vibrance adjustment layer increase 56 points.

Noiseware Pro

Unsharp Mask a little sharpening low radius and higher amount.

Duplicate layer with mask to apply extra sharpening and contrast with Unsharp mask low amount and high radius (Clarity Effect) except the highlights in the sky and reflection. This varies with the picture but I find about 70 amount and 70 radius works best.
