Eurostar High Speed to London

Eurostar High Speed to London
The Shot

This image was taken last July on my return from Paris on the Eurostar. The train runs at speeds of up to 186 mph and this picture was taken as it crossed the plains of northern France. The buffet car was perfect for HDR

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10 mm. Shutter speed was at 1/5 second to keep the effect of speed outside.

One RAW image was opened in Photoshop Camera RAW first to create 2 extra exposures for HDR at 2EV separation. Each image was noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.
This picture was enhanced with HDR processing followed by Topaz Adjust and Photoshop to bring in more detail. Processing included bringing in all 3 of the source images at various stages to adjust areas using layer masks.

With the wide range of light from the outside to inside the before and after images on my Blog are quite instructive on the benefits of HDR.

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