An isometic view of Canterbury Cathedral. This is the other side of the court yard shot I displayed 2 days ago. Added a bit of digital velvia during touching up to make the grass and sky a bit more vibrant. No polariser or any other tricks used. No HDR - I'm convinced that a flat looking HDR version of this wouldn't look very appealing at all.
For those who don't know what velvia is, it is a type of slide film made by Fujifilm (yeah, remember film?!). The colours velvia gives are very good for landscapes - supersaturated blues and greens. It's nice for shots like this, but gives really poor skin tones. So velvia should be avoided when taking photos of people. This of course was taken in digital, so the velvia effect is a simulated attempt to get the supersaturated colours that velvia film would have produced.
And there you go - now you know everything there is to know about velvia!
