Post-processing tips

  • Pay attention to halo artifacts – the building is much darker than the sky so there is a chance they will get introduce around that area
  • If you find color balance to be too blue try playing with Color Temperature slider in Photomatix to make it warmer
  • With such beautiful colors in the sky it’s easy to oversaturate the image – so keep that in mind
