    Re: Blends

    Now, you are not at road level for those two, or in a crane.

    Uwe, are you blending most of the stuff you do these days? It looks to me that Mike does a blend to some degree on everything he does

    More and more. Mike is more combining different elements while I add mostly just textures for a look. Nearly always like the blended image better than the original.

    Are we permitted to post non-4/3rds blends here?

    I have found this thread most inspiring.

    Here is my contribution (via my wife's photographic skills) . . . a blend of Bad Attitude Buffalo, with old paper texture and framing, and a touch of sepia.

    (If it is not in keeping with the 4/3rds rules then, mods, please delete)

    This is an easy going forum, and I for one post blends here that are non m4/3. I don't think the thread originator Michael (aka m3photo) minds

    Thank you everyone for the kind words and welcoming posts.
    A question . . . How does one post a fuller sized photo (such as Uwe's work),
    as opposed to the smaller thumbnail (like mine)? I've scratched around the
    various settings but found no clues.

    I host the images on my own server. Then include them with the Image feature.

    Re: Blends

    Thanks Uwe, much appreciated.

    Here is another of my blend attempts which, as you mentioned in an earlier post, looks better than the original. I can't quite put my finger on why, but the introduction of texture and use of a mask has brought out the gritty character of the two rhinos which was lacking in the original.

    Uwe, I'm finding that the adding of a texture layer shifts the overall histogram to the left since the texture is invariably more subdued. Do you find this as well, and if so, do you do anything about it (adjust the levels), or do you allow the texture to have its influence unaffected?

    I post the pics to the gallery in this forum (free), clip out their URL, then use the little square yellow mountain icon above the message box - and copy in the URL

    Yes and this looks nice. Many images directly from the camera or RAW converter look too harsh for my taste.

    >Do you find this as well, and if so, do you do anything about it (adjust the levels), or do you allow the texture to have its influence unaffected?

    I blend using exclusively my blending scripts:

    http://www.outbackphoto.com/CONTENT_...ing/index.html

    The script creates a layer group and allows many tuning options. Yes, I always tune the blend.

    No big deal. The Bubblegum Alley in San Luis Obispo is a major attraction (Goggle it). We like the gritty. We visit the town this weekend (for a gallery show where we are part of).

    This was created this way:

    - very strong crop
    - Kaleidoscope generated with Annamika on the iPad
    - Blended with a wall

    Forget the histogram - this is creativity; adjust everything until YOU think it's right, not some graph telling you it's not.

    +3 for both Uwe's flower and Mike's lampost & fish -- Excellent shots guys. What's really interesting, is to my eye if flower was cropped square, they'd work very well hung side-by-side. In my office.

    Ah Hasselblad days. It seems square became too square. Let's bring it back into fashion shall we?

    Thanks everyone. I've been super busy for a couple of days and haven't had a chance to check out the site.
    Uwe, I think that is one of my favorites that you have done. Very beautiful.
    And I got a chuckle out of your comment about not asking where my fish came from. I was standing on a dock on the Island of Lesbos in Greece.

    cheers
