Grid #16a-b, HDR Polaroid Transfer
This shot went through a number of processing steps. First, the RAW file was cropped to 11x14 proportion, straighted and vertical lines made parallel in Lightroom 3. Next, the image got single file HDR tone mapping in Nik HDR Efex. The HDR image got minor levels and curves adjustments in Photoshop CS5. Contrast and structure got a boost in Nik Vivenza and finally, processed as a Polaroid Transfer in Nik Color Efex Pro.
The monochrome conversion came from the precursor to the Polaroid transfer, processed in Nik Silver Efex Pro using a sharp green filter. The sepia/blue split tone added in Lightroom 3.
