Very special sight Vladimir, tell me more about the special techniques?

Matthias Moritz, 5.04.2005 at 1:33h

Really an eye catching picture. You did the upload in "special photo technique", but didn´t tell anything about it.
As Ruud I am very interested..:-))

Hi VD ... great shot and wonderful sky ... like also the way the statue catches the setting sun (if that is indeed what has happened - as the building in the background strangely doesn't) but all detail is retained in the dark areas .. regards, Paul

Very good, indeed! Was it the sun which illuminated the statue this way or is that a digital effect? Anyway, I like it!!
Greetings, Martin

Hi, everybody, and thanx a lot!

Well...special techniques... I will upload the colour variant in a week, is interesting, too. After opening an image in Photoshop I always check the channels. By this one i noticed that the red channel looks very impressive (the statue and clouds become brighter, the sky - darker, the buildings look dramatic etc.), but is too noisy to extract alone. So I applied several filters from PowerRetouche like "studio b/w" where I dragged all "red" sliders to their limits and got the same effect. After that I used "dodge" (for highlites) and "burn" (for shadows) brushes with 6% strength and "painted" slightly on the church to emphasize the texture. Finally I applied Powerretouche "toned photo" (cyan tone) and "sharpen" filters

As to the sunset - it was behind the church, on the statue there was a rosa reflection from the sky. So, in the red channel it became bright.

Thank you very much!!!
