Is this post processing ?

  1. I�m new to the world of photography as well as digital post processing.

    I saw this (http://g8.no/index.php?showimage=121) image recently and was
    wondering how the photographer achieved this effect. I understand there is some
    great light here. But, do you feel that some of this image is post process in
    Photoshop (especially the water) or is it just because of a long exposure on the
    camera.

    Also, if someone can point to me a good resource that discuss the techniques
    used to get this picture (apart from great talent of course :) )

    Thank you.
     
  2. Possibly not.
    I have taken some early morning pictures of the sea with long exposures, this tends to turn
    the sea into a ethereal mist. I'll bet that's how the water was done as for the colour, who
    knows? PP done well can be hard to spot;-)

  3. The water you can get from long exposure. I once got a very similar intensity of blue in the
    sky by shooting a long exposure to the north on an exceptionally clear winter evening. That
    photographer was shooting into the ecliptic so I'd hazard the blues have been dressed up a
    bit.
     
  4. yeah, you will often see color shifts and such with reciprocity failure..
     
  5. I'm not sure about the picture, but that's a cool web site.
     
  6. Judging from the other image of the woman holding the lit lightbulb, I would hazard to guess that the author was not averse to using some digital massaging.
     
  7. that isn't necessarily digital (the lightbulb)....you would be amazed at what some
    photographers do in studio.......

    I worked as an assistant for this guy <www.davidsharpe.com> for a while, and all of his work
    is done in camera
