Pramote, cracking shot!
I seem to remember a similar shot you took on Medium format? I do remember it was quite stunning!
Thank you Dave! I very much appreciate your thoughtful comment.Wonderful shot Pramote. Besides the obvious beauty, the shot has the wonder if the branches and leaves of the tree are or have been wind blown or that's it's shape? Lovely capture!
Thank you Jack!Light split sepia attempt from C1. Trying to hit on a balance of hue and saturation I find appealing in both the lows and highs; one that renders close to what I used to get from a warm-tone silver-based print paper as opposed to say a full-on sepia-toned print. This one has a bit less saturation in the highlights than it does the shadows. My eyes are really sensitive to red and green, and many base sepia styles I've tried for either C1 or PS tend to be too far one way or the other and usually a little too heavy for my tastes. (Edit: @Darin Marcus' image directly above I think has a really good neutral tone as well -- kudos )
New for me too, is I output this as a direct 1200px web jpeg from C1. Normally I'd port the full 16-bit psd over to PS and then sharpen and step resize, as historically it produced a better result. It appears that extra effort is no longer necessary. It is perhaps a little less "sharp" than my step reduced version, but to my eyes it actually seems a little more natural. I need to do a few more before drawing a final conclusion.
