I know, this picture has been taken - literally - a million times*.
But it was my first serious attempt at exposure blending, I learned a lot about luminosity masks and how to plan my next shot. I also like this image because most photos of the Sydney opera house during sunset are ridiculously overcooked. Restraint is my new photoshop skill 😉.
Is it just me or is exposure blending in cityscapes more difficult because the tones don't flow into each other like they do in most landscapes? I tried to make sure that the sails of the building are the brightest and thus focal point of the image with a little counterpoint for balance with the lit pylon across the bridge.
Feedback on colours and composition are most welcome.
