Monument to Peter The Great (The Bronze Horseman). St. Petersburg


No selective adjustments Built in 1768-1782; sculptor E. Falconet

I also have a version of this image where no separate Photoshop adjustments of different areas were used, i.e. it was only adjusted as a whole (shown to the right).

This picture illustrates About Skazka, Russian Society of Trondheim page, Sky as a part of photograph guide and is included in Picture Collection (ref. nr. n20-1) on Photo Pages

Fujichrome Sensia II 100 film, Canon EOS-500N, EF 75-300 1:4-5.6 II lens at 115mm, polarizer (darkened sky and re-distributed reflections more evenly), f/6.7 1/30, partial metering: dark places on the monument -2; tripod. Taken in July 1998. Scanned on Nikon LS30 scanner. The statue, sky and base stone adjusted separately in Photoshop to fix the scene tonal range that was just too large.
