Early January I had a post with images from Niagara Falls taken late evening with a 28mm lens,
1/10 sec and ISO 640. These images was taken without the use of a tripod.
I was asked a few questions about how I "tweaked" my night images to make them turn out the way they do.
I'll show how it is possible with a few controls in Lightroom to take an average image and turn it into a reasonably good image.
This is the original image. Flat and with a lot of noise.
Adding brightness and filling in little light makes the first improvement. :)
By adding more brightness the noise become more visible.
By adding luminance the noise is reduced.
And, here is the image used in the post.
More could have been done with this image with Photoshop, but that can wait for another time :)
