Post Processing Challenge March 13, 2021

Discussion in 'Digital Darkroom' started by PuntaColorada, Mar 13, 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.

    Hoping that this challenge is a 'ribbiting' experience for you.

  2. Fun question. How many mosquitoes are visible on the back of the frog?

    Lunch Time. I needed to expand the right side of the image, so I used "content aware fill" in Photoshop CC to start, then a bunch of cloning. Then I pasted a scaled and rotated cropped photo of the frog"s tongue with captured moth.
  4. Perhaps I see one mosquito on the frog's toe?
  5. Channels adjustments.
  6. In Photoshop, I used Field Blur on the background, dropped the background exposure, dropped the background saturation, used Adobe Camera Raw as a filter to add texture and clarity to the frog, and back in Photoshop, blurred the edges of the frog. Frog.jpg
  7. Hi Glenn. These are the 2 cheeky bugs that I see. It is not the 1st time that I had photographed mosquitoes on frogs. I thought that they would avoid getting eaten. Perhaps they are too small for Mr. Green Frog.

  8. Color-graded frog scene (inspired by Outlander) In retrospect, a different source of inspiration

    Frog - mike.jpg would have worked better;).
  9. My version: The illustrated, mildly color-graded and de-mosquitoed Mr. Froggy. Thanks for the upload, Sr. Punta.
