Chris Froome Race to St Malo

Chris Froome Race to St Malo
The Shot

I have just returned from a week in France taking in some of the Tour de France stages in Brittany. This was Stage 10 last Tuesday finishing in St Malo. The location was at Cancale about 15 miles from the finish.

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 28-200 zoom at 60mm. 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 a pan blur was applied using Topaz lens effects. A layer mask was used to remove the blur from Chris Froome in the yellow jersey and the 2 nearest competing cyclists to make them stand out.

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