Cycle Race Zoom {EXPLORED 2 November 2011}
The Shot

This picture was taken close to home at the Goodwood Motor Race Circuit near Chichester, West Sussex, UK. The circuit is used for Cycle Races on Tuesday evenings in the Summer.

This image is a scan of a slide taken in 1996. All the movement in the picture was done in camera with zooming and panning during the exposure

No HDR for a change but there were some enhancements, see below..

The camera used was a Minolta Dynax 700si. The scanner was a Nikon Coolscan 5 slide scanner.

Photoshop

General adjustments in levels and curves to enhance.

A copy of the picture in which the exposure was increased in Raw was copied as a new layer with a layer mask to selectively increase brightness in the sky which in the scanning came out too dark. Note to edit the Tiff file obtained from the scan in Raw in Photoshop go to file and then “open as” navigate to the required image but before opening use the dropdown to change the file type to” Camera Raw”

A brightness/contrast adjustment layer was used with a layer mask to increase Brightness on the main rider to make him stand out.

Vibrance layer increase by 51 points

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) to the main rider
