The Shot
This shot was taken on Stage 11 of the Tour de France 2013. This was on the first individual Time Trial from Avranches to Mont St Michel. The location was at Courtils which was the 2nd Time Check about 8 miles from the finish.

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 28-200 zoom at 200mm. The image was opened in Camera Raw and 2 additional images were created at +2EV and -2Ev for a “false HDR” with each image having Noiseware Pro applied. A Photoshop action I had saved was used to create the extra images automatically. The images were saved as tiffs.

The HDR was created using Photmatix. In Photoshop Topaz Adjust was used with a layer mask to apply it only to Chris Froome to make him stand out. Other adjustments layers were used to make Chris stand out more.
Full details of the processing together with before and after images are on my Blog see Edwin Jones Photography Blog
