Three's a Company or Three's a Crowd?
Three fireworks images were shot on a tripod with long exposure in RAW. Processed the RAW files using Photoshop CS5. The three files were then digitally combined to create this one fireworks image. I increased the overall saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. Curve adjustment to increase the overall contrast. 1 layer mask in soft light mode at 50% gray, using brush tool to lighten and darken some areas of the image, to bring out details. Used Nik Sharpener Pro to sharpen image.
My second upload of the 4th of July fireworks display with Portland Oregon downtown skyline from Eastbank Esplanade. This is a digital layering of three fireworks images shot that night. It was great shooting alongside Joe, Vincent, and lots of other photographers.
