I was exploring Sydney harbour with my camera yesterday when I noticed this cute little cloud shaped like the Opera house. It was sitting just above the horizon behind the Opera house and I had to share it with you guys. The arched sails catching the sea winds are such an inspiring thing that now nature is copying them !

Post Processing:

I made this image using the merge to HDR feature from Adobe Photoshop CC, which is a 32-bit HDR feature. This just means it retains more of the colour and data than a 16bit or 8bit image. The downside is that it uses up huge amounts of memory to edit them so you need a fast PC.

After creating my HDR, I took it into Adobe Lightroom 5 where I applied a preset.

After that I used the sliders in lightroom to adjust the shadows, highlights, blacks and whites. Then as always I went to play in my filters programs, today I used On1 Perfect Effects as I was able to bring out some contrast and then add some glow. The glow looks fantastic on Sydney Harbour water I think.
