Chris Froome Tour Winner Time Trial
The Shot
This is another shot 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 28mm. 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 to make him stand out. This involved a lot of fine detail level brush work on the layer mask. To get accurate for the complex area behind bike and rider I used a number of selection areas using the pen tool to confine the brush to particular areas when bringing in the blur
