Post Processing Challenge Nov 20, 2021

Discussion in 'Digital Darkroom' started by PuntaColorada, Nov 20, 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.

    Recovering from an encounter with a window.

    luis triguez and tom_r like this.
  2. Thought I would try and add some color.
    Similar to a prior challenge
    First Gigapixel AI to reduce color artifacting needed for this technique
    Hue Sat narrow band around the near yellows and color shifted to give an interesting color
    Group Layers as Smart Object
    Gaussian Blur with Color Blend
    Add Camera Raw Filter for Clarity and Texture increase
    Mask beak to original colors

  4. I've tried to stay true to the original photo (which IMHO is a good one). Just cropped slightly and adjusted levels and curves. Oh, and added some catchlights in the eyes.

  5. Originally I was just going to posterize the background

    But I really liked Johns color shifts. I thought I would give it a try but after a while I couldn't decide on a color. So I said the heck with it ....
