Day 16: POTD

Photos from Day 15:

Photo # 1


Today, I'm going to repeat a little from yesterday. Some commented that they actually liked the background of the first photo better than the 2nd, IF it was cropped in like the 2nd. I thought I'd give this a try, with a poll attached to my blog. So please vote for photo number 1, with the REAL background, versus photo number 2, with the background from a different restaurant. Thanks for playing along.
Photo # 2



Photos for Day 16:
And now here's my photos for today, Day 16: A lovely ND shelter belt
I shot these from a moving car at 70mph, through the windshield, with a polarizing filter and my 18-135 mm lens at 52mm, in Aperture Mode, wb cloudy, f/11.0; ISO 800, exp 400.
Before:


And here's my after, with levels adjusted, and a light amount of sharpening:



And finally, in the next post I included a video clip that I really like for explaining layers, and some instructions I wrote for working with layers.

Wow...that's impressive PSing. I could never do something like that. I like the second picture best, looks more natural maybe.

Danielle said...

Wow to the trees! They are beautiful.

pat said...

Nice work with the trees--and from a moving car, too! Really like the conversion on that.

Toni said...

I also like the second picture better. You are definitly getting a hang of ps. TOni

Mandy said...

I love the perspective on the shot with the tress. That is so awesome...and the black and white are so harsh it really lends itself to the "cold" environment.

Liz said...

WOW you did a great job with PS on your tree photo.

Margaret said...

Love those trees, especially the conversion you did.

Tomboymama said...

That looks like a painting. Very very pretty. Especially cool that you got it from a fast-moving car.

Sharon said...

This is so beautiful. Great job editiing.

Val said...

The edit on your second photo is amazing. Great job!

I have to vote for photo number one. I'm not a huge fan of edits where you put people on different backgrounds, and you can tell something has been done. I can totally tell something isn't right on the second one. They don't mesh with the background, if that makes sense.

Becky said...

That is a great job on your tree picture! And I like the plain background picture of the kids. Plain background, but it looks more natural to me than the other.
