Cheery pics of Londoners getting a wiggle on.
Blood, Sweat and Tides went into this beautiful work.
ooh- ethereal! Love it!
Love to know what that was shot on (and if it’s been treated?).
The Flickr page has the info: 3 exposures -4, -2, 0 (presumably then processed for HDR) – 20mm Sigma – f/5.6 – ISO 100 on a Canon 500D.
Thanks for featuring the photo.
This was indeed 3 exposures and processed as HDR via Photomatix Pro 4.0. The only colour correction was to set the white balance to tungsten to remove the night time orange glow. Once done it was cropped, sharpened and some of the noise reduced in Photoshop. I also removed (by cloning) a blue light coming out of the fog on the right side of the image from a building lost somewhere in there as this was quite distracting and looked out of place.
The photo was taken from a rooftop North of the river on Friday night around 10pm and I was lucky to have the fog the way it is in the image, as 5 minutes either side of this would have been a completely different picture. By contrast, the top of the Shard was not at all visible the same time the following night but the bottom part, concealed by fog in this image, was visible.
