Shadowy Walkway

This was shot at the Venetian and it took awhile to get. I didn’t want anyone in the frame so I had to wait for people to move out it. When you are shooting long exposures this can either be a problem or not. If someone walks through quick enough they won’t appear. If they don’t then they are a blur in the shot. Sometimes this is nice sometimes its not. In this case I didn’t want them.

I used Macphun’s Intensify Pro to bring out the shadow details then masked it back into the original image with a varying opacity to the areas I wanted. Then ran it through Nik Silver Efex and bumped the structure in the image then used a luminosity mask to give it a bit of the secret sauce.

From there done!

  1. Your photo is interesting. I am presuming that it is outside the Venetian? There is lots of sections to photo on this grand spot in Las Vegas. Is the moat on the outside of this pathway to the entrance? I would think it was and that is one of the reasons everyone goes through the “Shadowy Walkway”. I enjoyed the photo.
