    Re: Photo-a-day

    Had the last of those Sony workshops I was talking about the other day - Alonso Diaz. He's a bit of a leg tbh - showed us some crazy techniques, moonlit landscapes and the like...

    Here's my poor imitations of his style:





    and here's a couple that are more my own style:

    Re: Photo-a-day

    I like the second 'imitation' - can see where you're going with that one. The first one I'm not so sure about, too much variation in sharpness for me I think.

    I really like the tattoo pics. Not sure why.. Think its the colours and contrasts more than anything.

    Another landscape type pic from me

    Be careful with your processing kushtibari - your IQ has gone to pieces - halos, posterisation and noise everywhere, big blob of sensor dust top centre too. I like your composition and the light is nice, but you really can't push/pull that far in PP.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Must agree, fantastic composition love the shot but way over saturated in PP. If you shot it in RAW then try some gentler curve tweaks perhaps.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Thanks - think that makes me feel 'slightly' better as I didn't do it. Someone else picked it up and tweaked it as it was quite muted. I honestly prefer my as untouched as possible but I quite liked the colours he produced. Feedback on here a bit back was that my pictures needed a bit more oomph.

    Its not sensor dust though - wee icicles kept blowing into the lens and spray from the waterfall behind me.

    This is the original - any thoughts as to what changes would be sensible. Bear in mind I've been doing this for about 4 weeks and I've not really mucked about with that much software. The Pentax came with Silkypix and I've got ACDSee but don't use it for a lot of tweaks. The person that tweaked it used Photoshop.



    I just thought it could maybe do with a bit more colour myself.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Seems it has been severely underexposed to the point that (all) shadow detail has been lost..
    Was it shot as a raw? If so, you might be able to salvage it still..

    edit: I gave it a go

    This is what photoshop would give you if you used auto curves


    This is how I would have done it


    Both have a weak unsharp mask.. 0.3 px, 100% I think it was and +1.09 exposure.
    yes, I know there's banding.. it can't be helped..?

    The original already has artefacts - like it's been saved in a poor quality jpeg or the colour mode isn't right.

    Like your edit - the banding is in the original so it can't be helped, at this point you'd start colour picking and airbrushing the clouds to get rid of banding etc.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Thanks BlastUK

    I've been setting it to take RAW and JPEG but I was running out of room onthe card - need to get a bigger one as I'm using the old SD Card from my point and shoot Ixus.

    When I saved the jpeg from the card - opened in ACDSee then saved again to the PC it seemed to compress it again so I've obviously done something else wrong.
