Post Processing Challenge, June 5, 2021

Discussion in 'Digital Darkroom' started by tom_r, Jun 5, 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.

    SOOC Yellowstone.

  2. Thanks Tom. Great image.
    First, I pixel peeped and was drawn to the textures and subtle colour swaths of the vegetation in the foreground. I cropped in LrC and then opened in Ps BUT I didn't use the tools of Ps: I used Viveza 2 and ON1 as plug-ins in Ps (just easier to use both programs under one umbrella). In Viveza 2, I increased the structure in two areas of the foreground. Then in ON1 I adjusted colour trying to enhance the purple of the flowers on the sedges; added dynamic contrast, a border, and vignette.

  3. A bit of playing with perspective. I didn't keep track of what I did; but, the result is rather unspectacular anyway so I doubt there will be interest. tom_r June 5 2021-Edit-2.jpg
     
  4. Crop, smart (over)sharpen, levels and old school rays of light.

  8. Brrr...got cold! Messing around with a new "neural filter" (style transfer) in PS plus a "glacial frost" action.
