Venus of SLAM #3
This third study of the bronze lady in the St. Louis Art Museum comes from the "Polaroid Transfer" style in Nik Silver Efex Pro. You can see the effect of mixed lighting, where the primary source is tungsten, but the strong blue highlight on the left is the reflection of the main entrance. The Polaroid Transfer style mutes the blue highlight color somewhat and fortuitously balances the color with by emphasizing the blue shift of daylight lit wall on the right.
Technical: Nikon D700, Nikkor 180mm f2.8, ISO 1600, WB - Tungsten, f/3.2 @ 1/200s, handheld. RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.6, noise reduction in Nik Dfine, edited in Nik Color Efex Pro Complete using the "Polaroid Transfer" style.
