Another photo from my recent trip up to the Griffith Observatory last week. I just love how you feel like your walking high up in the sky when your walking around the observatory. It truly is a magical place to walk around! If your ever in LA its not to be missed.
How this shot was made: Canon 5D mkII, Canon 16-35mm f2.8L II Lens 35mm, f8, 13sec, ISO 320
5 Exposures taken on location. Manual blending of different exposures using luminosity masks to bring different parts of the image back into balance. Used Nik Color Efex Pro 4 for texture, contrast, and saturation adjustments. Viveza 2 for some additional structure and contrast in select parts on the image. Highpass filter for sharpening of the city. Lots of small cures adjustments to fix various issue here and there. Saved as .psd and exported using LR4.
