A quick post today, as I have some stuff to wrap up at work before the long holiday weekend. Website is coming along as well, and I’m still targeting to get it up and running by the end of next weekend but seeing as I’ve never done this kind of thing before, we’ll see.
Another shot from the Pirate game I went to a couple weeks ago. One of my favorite things about PNC Park is the fact that you can see the city skyline from pretty much every seat in the stadium. This is a view from one of the rotundas leading to the upper levels.
For this I combined 5 handheld exposures in Photomatix, then tonemapped the +2 exposure to mask in both the flag and the people, as they were both obviously moving. The scoreboard had changed between shots too, so I took the -1 exposure to mask that back in. Finally, Tonal Contrast, Pro Contrast and Progressive Sharpening filters were added, along with a desaturation layer to finish the shot.
I hope all of you who are celebrating Memorial Day (and those of your who aren’t) have a great weekend. See you on Monday.
