Hi promised to show you a little more of where I shot those hedges in a previous post (http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=23)

Also wanted to see if I could shoot some reds after reading Hiroshi's post on troublesome reds (http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=23)

Firstly the Location (a 12 shot pano, a bit slack on getting good coverage so I'll have to return). St Patrick's Cathedral, Melbourne, a gothic revival building.



A couple of cathedral shots - as you can see it was a pretty bright day, I generally ran a reverse S curve to brighten the shadows and darken the highlights on most of these shots.












Some gargoyles...this one is fairly high up, on maximum zoom



and this one is a recent rennovation job, the stonemason had a bit of fun and modelled it on the then premier of Victoria (equivalent of a US state Governor)



OK so to the reds first. Shot both of these at -2/3EV. I shot in RAW and then had to drop down the exposure by a further -1EV to get the flaring under control. Have not added blue as suggested by Hiroshi, might try that tomorrow.



And finally the hedges.....a nice place to sit at lunch time




OK. I'll get out of your way now and get some sleep.

Cheers
Rafael

Very nice. Well done and appears that you have the red technique also.

Great shots there Rafael....you have a great eye for architectural shots, I always look forward to seeing them.Love the first 3 pics.
The rose shots still look a little saturated to me...but that may just be my monitor.

Thanks mc, Gerry and Mark, appreciate your comments.

Mark, interesting that you still see the flower as overblown, the histogram in photoshop shows me as OK (even in the red channel). But as you say sometimes monitors differ.

Rafael, I always enjoy your architectural shots as they are so well done. The first and third are my favorites. We have some red roses that will be blooming soon so I plan to try some experimenting with shots and, if any are worthwhile, adding to Hiroshi's post.
