Blue Bulls
Image by Bill Lim
Reflecting pool reflection of the Blue Cube.
The Contemporary Jewish Museum designed by architect Daniel Libeskind.
San Francisco.

The photo was "righted" so as to present the Cube not upside down. Peek closely and one can see a bed of rocks.

Camera details:
• Olympus E-510
• Zuiko 14-54mm f2.8/3.5 lens

Workflow
• rawtherapee v2.4 beta2 to Color Boost, Highlight Recovery, adjust the Luminance Curve for brightness, and vary the image’s exposure (-0.5ev, 0.0ev). Save each varied to a 16-bit TIFF.
• enfuse v3.2 to blend the multiple TIFF images into one.
• Photoshop CS2 (running through WINE v1.1.9) to modify, in LAB color mode, the contrast and saturation via a curves adjustment layer, and to smart sharpen on the L channel (Lightness). And then to rotate the image 180° and flip relative its vertical axis.
• exiftool to copy the .ORF EXIF tags back into the final JPEG.
• kflickr to upload the JPEG to flickr.com.
• flickr’s Picnik to add the border.
Linux Kubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron.
• Dell e1405 laptop with the 1.6Ghz Intel CoreDuo and 1GB RAM.
