Love this shot Lannie! The lighting is wonderful. Nice job! j
What a great shot - and every window lit. Well worth a walk in the cold!
looks very natural
but from the technical information, it seems that you did a selective desaturation. i think it worked beautifully. really nice image. best, j
I can feel the warmth... I have always liked the sight of window light in homes. It makes a house seem alive and warm. This one is especially nice because of the snow! It gives me a wonderful sense of warmth just viewing it. deb
Thanks, Jamie. The two outdoor lamps (one to the right, not visible) gave off a yellow light that ruined the entire thing.
So, the steps I used were as follows:
(1) total desaturation;
(2) use of the history brush to bring back the original color of the windows;
(3) addition of a small amount of blue over the entire file.
But you knew that. . . .
The actual scene was so much better than anything that I managed to capture.
Great seasonal shot! The lights in the windows really have that warm feeling, that that you have a Christmas tree in the main window is icing on the cake. I like the lighting on the snow and the trees -- very muted and mellow, just like I've experienced it in my walks around the neighborhoods at this time of year. Very nice work.
it looks great, and you thought of a good way to make it look more like it appeared to you than the actual crumby light from the (presumably) sodium lamps. happy new year!! j
Lannie: Nicely done night photo. Tom
Thanks, Janis and Samme. This shot of the house across the street was made the day after our first white Christmas in over a hundred years. How most of the snow managed to stay on the trees for a full day I will never know, since it had been a pretty windy day.
Very nice composition ,what makes it so nice is the different lights in the windows,vs. the dim light still keeping the trees form in the surrounding.well executed.
