On the small screen of my cellphone, Petr, I like what I see. It’s a bit hard at this small size to try to evaluate the ranges of whites, or more particularly the blacks. At the moment, I quite like the obelisk being centre stage. Not sure about the inclusion of the dual leaf, just to the left of the obelisk? Will try to find time to fire up my…[Read more]
Funny where you end up. I was just teaching myself how to use Paul Mudditt’s Mud’s macro “Text on a Curve”. Then I was trying to think of a longish set of words and I first thought of the national anthem (for some peculiar reason), but then thought of a song. This is what I ended up with. I kept adjusting the text size to that the words fitted…[Read more]
VG Petr! I would darken it down (use the Multiply Mode and then Opacity slider to get to where you like it). Plus, I would clone out the areas top right and top left, which are a distraction.
Your title, if you want in English, should be “Devil from Hell”, not “the Hell”.
Great stuff, Bruce. To me the centre of interest, are the two rocks and fence, plus the road. The hedge to the right hardly contributes at all, plus there is so much of it. I would crop out some (half?) of the hedge area.
Firstly, Mario, I would try this in B&W, then see what you think. Additionally (and now that I think about it, more importantly) the performer, who is the centre of interest, does not stand out from the surroundings sufficiently – it will take quite a bit of work to achieve this.
Hi, P71, the man’s jacket seems to be blown out, not much detail at all. Also, there seems to be strong blacks and whites, not much in-between. I guess that you were aiming for a much subtler effect. Someone, more experienced, than I, will comment, I feel sure, on your camera settings.
Have no experience with Luminar, but hear that it is on…[Read more]
This is a composite of different photos taken by me. The only thing “foreign” is the shattered glass which has been introduced by means of a special brush (for those who might be used to this language, I put the brush effect into ‘Screen mode’, duplicated, then triplicated the layer, to get this result). The supporting actor, the startled v…[Read more]
Thanks for all the feedback, guys! What I had to use in Fiji, was our laptop. Not a bad size, but with variable light, in our Fiji resort, harder to see that my 4K screen, which I use wholly to view the image on our desktop back home. So, the faults were not Affinity Photo’s, but my own speed and carelessness.
Erik – your suggestion much a…[Read more]
