Post Processing Challenge, February 27, 2021

Discussion in 'Digital Darkroom' started by Glenn McCreery, Feb 27, 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.

    The photo was taken somewhere in the Northern Nevada ppc nevada gas 1.jpg
  2. Thanx Glenn. Excellent choice.
    Two versions adding motion.
    "We went through there so fast, everything was a blur" Selected truck, inverted to select background then motion blur.
    "We really should lower the speed limit here in the center of town". Blurred selected truck (motion). Selected the 3 on the speed sign, flipped it horizontally and masked to marry it up.

  3. I'm still 'working' (=thinking about and preparing) my response to last week's PP challenge. Unfortunately my attention and time was claimed by my own (real) photography, inclusive (real) PP. I'll try to post something on last week's challenge this week along with a response to this week's challenge. It'll be fun - and relaxing - to use PP creatively again rather than 'of necessity' :)
  4. Turn on your lights, dude. It's getting dark!
    Lots of experimenting here. Started in Topaz Jpeg to Raw AI, Gigapixel AI x2 then reduced to original size, Topaz Detail, Luminar AI for the sky with a lot of adjustments there, in DXO Photolab, PS and ACR. Gradients for decreasing highlights, luminance map and PS brush work to rosy up the clouds.
