Post Processing Challenge April 3, 2021

Discussion in 'Digital Darkroom' started by PuntaColorada, Apr 3, 2021.

  1. There are no rules as to how you apply your post processing to this image; but, please let us know what you have done so we can all learn.
    If you would like to post a candidate image next week, please ensure it is of sufficiently high resolution for manipulation by the participants (3000px on the long side, 300dpi for example).

    Most of all, let's have fun while we are learning or demonstrating how we use our post-processing software, imaginations and interpretations.

    Sirens? Punta del Este, Uruguay.

  2. A bit more color.

  3. Second version: After my previous psychedelic iron-maiden mermaids, I decided to try B/W. I converted it using a PS panel called Infinite Black and White. It looked pretty good, but just before posting I wondered how Pixbim ColorSurprise AI (B/W-->Color) would handle it. I expected the usual cringe-worthy result, but this time it was ok. When it colored the rocks in front, it kept them pretty drab which seems to set them off nicely from the colorful background. I did increase the green sat. in PS a little.

    I blended the photo of the sirens with one of the ocean. My ocean photo included the paddleboarder, so I kept him. I added a duplicate layer that I edited using Topaz Simplify with an "impressionistic painting" setting. I blended the duplicate layer with low (11%) opacity to make the image look brighter, but not alter the contents significantly.

  5. Las sirenas otra vez. (3ª versión)
    This time using the G'MIC free plugin (available finally for Windows this past year), Topaz Glow 2 and some channel mixer and saturation adjustments in PS.
