American University of Sharjah

January 1, 2015

This is one of the photos that I took for the official calendar of the American University of Sharjah.

I took four exposures. One for the sky, one for the ground, one for the people walking, and the last was for the birds with high iso to freeze their movements.

24mm · f/10.0 · 1/400s · ISO 3200

I think that you need to correct the perspective and adjust the vertical lines. The processing is too hdr-ish. too.

Thanks for your comment! I have always hated HDR process and I have never used it! I blend all the photos manually with photoshop to get the best exposure in the photo. Maybe the detail extractor filter that I used gave it the feeling!

Gorgeous. I'd like a little more contrast to accentuate form. Looks a little too flat with midtones, IMHO. I'm just being picky though
