The Red Eye Flight :: HDR

The Red Eye Flight :: HDR

This is definitely my last post for this week till i see all of you again next week hopefully.. if only my flickr blood is still tickling inside me 😛 I will be jetting off tomorrow to …. of coz Melbourne (where else can it be! :)) for a short getaway 😉 There are things planned out so its not really a photography trip sadly.

Anyway, a red eye flight to catch tmr so i thought this post is rather appropriate. I honestly don’t know if this was taken in the morning or evening. My cam says its noon (duh!) but i don’t normally leave or catch the plane at night to Melb. Never trust my cam’s timing since it has been mucked around by my mates & really don’t bother to take note of all this thing 😛

Till now, good night as I need to be awake again in less than 7 hours time :S so take care & have a wonderful weekend! :))



Jetstar Plane at Melbourne Domestic Airport, Tullamarine, Victoria, Australia

The Shot

Standard 3 exposure shot (+2..0..-2 EV) taken handheld against the window using Sigma DC HSM 10-20mm lens


– Tonemapped generated HDR using detail enhancer option


– Added 2 layer mask effect of ‘curves’ to adjust contrast for sky & plane
– Added 1 layer mask effect of ‘saturation’ (reds) to tone down the reflection
– Added 1 layer mask effect of ‘saturation’ (yellows) to enhance the lighting
– Added 1 layer mask effect of ‘saturation’ (blues) to enhance part of the plane
– Used spot healing tool to remove any reflections on the glass
– Applied noise reduction at selective area
– Used ‘unsharp mask’ (as always) on the background layer
