A New View of Crystal Palace

With all the hub construction the past few years it has been a long time since I’ve been able to shoot the Crystal Palace. This was really bothering me as I was never really happy with my previous Crystal Palace shots so walking past all the construction walls blocking me getting a shot was really getting irritated. At last though the hub is completed and I was able to get this shot even if it is slightly modified from the previous view. Still you can get a nice shot of it now and I’m pretty happy with the result.

Shooting & Editing A New View of Crystal Palace

This was shot with the Nikon D810 and Nikon 14-24 2.8. My biggest irritation with this shot was the tree in the upper right hand corner had a terribly ugly blue cast all over it. I can’t remember if this was a light because of the fall season decor or if it’s a regular light but it really sucks. I targeted the color using color range selection and then used a warming photo filter to get rid of the strong blue color cast. Using the same selection I then did a series of color curves to recolor the tree the way I felt it would look with a more standard lighting. Outside of this processing was pretty standard.

Are you glad the hub construction is finally over?
