HDR Tutorial, Step 6, final touch

The last thing that I usually do before I resize the image is to add a curves layer to draw a vignette, and I might also add a curve layer in mode Screen to make certain parts of the photo brighter.



The final stack of layers can be seen above. It's now time to save, flatten the image, resize and apply smart sharpening.

The final result can be seen below.




That's pretty much how I process most of my photos. It usually takes about 20-30 minutes to process one image.

Good luck
Kaj
