London City Hall Monolith

London City Hall Monolith
The Shot

Another shot from my last day trip to London early in November. There are 5 of these black schulptures in the plaza round City Hall on the South Bank. All are by Fiona Banner and are intended to represent vastly increased in size full stops in various typefaces. Fasinating, I will now look on these in a new light. The black paint is also the same shade as that used for London Taxis.

The picture was taken with a Tripod with a Sony A700 with a Samyang 8mm fisheye lens at f8. There were 3 raw images 2EV spacing for HDR. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.

The HDR was created using Photmatix and tonemapped using tone compressor photographic preset for the most natural look and the least noise.

Additional enhancements were made in Topaz adjust and adjustment layers in Photoshop.

Full details of the processing together with before and after images are on my Blog see Edwin Jones Photography Blog
