Here’s the original shot Tersha. This shot is of the monument for Charles Tennant and his sons located in the Glasgow Necropolis. After posting the image I realized that I should have processed it in SilverFX as well to see what extra atmosphere I could extract.
I added two (2) layers of clouds to add the smoke/fog as well as an additional layer…[Read more]
I think I like Lenny’s processing a little better. I think this is because I find the ‘brightness’ of the truck in the reflection to be over powering and draws my eyes there to much. That is also added to by the direction the mom/daughter are looking (to the reflection).
With that said… I believe that – reversing – the image will help. As a…[Read more]
In cases like these images — don’t let the camera make “all” the decisions —.
Judging by the combined and various shutter speeds, f-stops, aanndd ISO settings, the camera is making a lot of the decisions for you. Looking at the EXIF, the camera is set to ‘aperture priority’… and that the camera also selects the ISO in this mode (judging by…[Read more]
Wow!… 1065 down to 28! That’s some serious eye strain and mental fatigue Craig. I usually get stuck keeping too many images that are similar (but different enough to be a good picture). I think my end count is usually around 10% (so in this case… around 100 images). Congrats on being able to ‘cull’ that many images.
If you’re using LR and…[Read more]
I actually prefer using this method… but not for how the article implies it should be used.
I believe to get the silky water you were looking for — with this type of water — you probably should have used a longer shutter speed (1/2, 1/4, etc.). The longer shutter speed would have given more movement in each frame… But with that said… if…[Read more]
I’ve only just started to use my phone lately (as I’ve just purchased a relatively new one)…. I was always surprised to see the overall quality of the images they take, especially when I’m having difficulties in some situations getting a decent image with my other cameras. I’m guessing it’s mainly due to the automatic settings the phone us…[Read more]
I guess it all depends on what story you’re trying to tell Petr.
My preference is the ‘original’ image as the wider perspective brings into play the surroundings the man is in as well as emphasizes the loneliness better.
While to some, the tighter crop looks better, it doesn’t provide the ‘loneliness’… only a man taking a break on a…[Read more]
