The future is now


Why the title ?

I chose it because the image makes me think of those computer generated simulations to show new, hyper modern building projects…

Processing was done with Photomatix Pro, it’s a conversion of one RAW file to a pseudo-HDR image.

After reading the comments from Eric and Sergio, I tried to get rid of the over saturated red on the faces. I first tried by lowering the saturation of the red channel, which gave a good result on the faces, but not on the rest of the picture. As I wasn’t in the mood for making a selection of the faces, I tried adjusting the luminance of the red and orange channel… And : that gave the result I wanted. The photo you see now is the updated version. BTW, I also sharpened the photo a little bit, just to give it an extra bit of ‘punch’… The original version I posted yesterday can still be found here : CLICK
