Long Slow Climb

Long Slow Climb
The Shot

Last Tuesday was one of the few days in the last few weeks with a decent sunny day. I took the opportunity for some Autumn colours shots. This was taken at Eartham Woods north of Chichester, UK on the Sussex Downs. I spotted the snail on the tree trunk and rested the camera flat on the tree

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.


Photomatix

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

Photoshop

The -2EV original image was copied and pasted as a new layer with a black layer mask. A brush was then used to show the layer in the sky to darken some areas.

General adjustments in levels and curves to enhance.

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

Vibrance adjustment layer increase 59 points with mask to exclude the tree trunk.

Noiseware Pro

Unsharp Mask a little sharpening low radius and higher amount.

Duplicate layer with mask to apply extra sharpening and contrast with low amount and high radius (Clarity Effect) except the highlights.
