    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    I posted my earlier shot on my Flickr account, and someone suggested I try an HDR version. I have Photomatix Pro, but seldom use it... I really have no idea what I'm doing. Anyway, the earlier version was pretty much straight out of the camera, and this one HDR, with a Curves adjustment added in PS4 after the Photomatix treatment.

    Such as it is, here it is:

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Lloyd - There are two things that strike me about the HDR image. First, the "light" on the mountains seems to be without a source. This can be OK and I think could be used as an aesthetic device to advantage but I would have to make a clear decision about this and work the image with this idea in mind. I like the original image with the dark foreground and bright sky but after seeing the HDR image I would be tempted to experiment and try to bring out some more detail in the dark area (like the mountain tops) with an adjustment layer (curves/levels/brightness-contrast) on a selection rather than the HDR technique.

    Secondly, the HDR seems to blow some areas in the sky so that needs taming. I realize this is an experiment for you and that you are not facile with the program.

    Hope this doesn't sound too nit-picky but this is how the one HDR image struck me. You post so many fabulous (and flawless) images on this thread I must say.

    I must confess I like the original better. It is unearthy spectacular as it is; the HDR version looks like a photoshop creation and detaches itself from reality altogether.

    I'm leaning that way myself. I think I will do some experimenting, but it's hard to improve on Mother Nature.

    Hi Lloyd
    I have yet to see an HDR photo I actually like . . . I've no problem in theory, I just think they look odd, and not particularly attractive.

    Thanks, Jono.

    I'm with you on that in general. I was impressed with the first HDR images I saw, interesting just because they were very different. The more I saw, however, the less impressed I became. Then recently I've seen some that I didn't realize were HDR until it was pointed out to me. Those I found acceptable. Here's a link to a fellow on Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpn/who pretty well covers the continuum from strange (intentionally, I think) to very nearly real HDR. It was seeing his work that prompted me to get the HDR program... I just can't sort out how to use it (mostly for lack of trying.)

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Thank you Lloyd! This is one of those images that I really wanted to work, but had to work hard at to get even close. Fog is sometimes hard to portray, at least from the standpoint of coming close to what it looked like to the naked eye. Glad you like it.

    Hi Reynolds,

    I really like the dark mood of the first two, and they are superbly processed to render the mood! However the last one of Sousa is perhaps a bit too dark, at least for color and for my tastes.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    You guys are great!! Brady could NOT have taken the shot of his own grave, right?

    Jack, here's another take on Sousa that you might like better.

    Also, what can I do with that signature? I know you are not fond of it and I think it's a bit "much" myself. I want something personal on the images...not a business watermark. Any thoughts?

    ALSO, I am using LR2.3 and CS3. Since upgrading to 2.3 from 2.3RC, when I go to "edit in PS" from LR, PS opens but the image doesn't. What's that all about? Do I need to get CS4 or something?

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Reynolds - I like the processing in the fist image, the tones really suit the subject matter well and it creates a nice mood.

    How are you doing the signature? A simple thing to try - in Photoshop, put it on its own layer and reduce the opacity of that layer. That will tone it down and you can vary the opacity depending on the image. Also, in the second and third image the signature is placed fine but in the fist image I would move it to the bottom right so it doesn't compete with the "Hoover" text in the image. Same with the second Sousa photo.

    The Hoover and the Brady both have a nice mood.

    I like this one much better than the earlier iteration. I agree about the signature here, I would move it to the bottom right, so it doesn't compete with subject of the image.

    I actually got to "borrow" it from the Leica rep at the Leica class yesterday. It took a lot of smiling and promising to bring it back quickly. I only had it in my hands for 30 minutes. Actually, it only took 2 minutes before I knew I wanted/needed one...

    Now, to save the pennies.

    Many thanks for all the input. I agree totally about placement. I think I got sorta stuck on lower left somehow! The signature is a PS brush and you forced me to learn that there are opacity and flow sliders on brushes...how 'bout that? So, check this...

    No, but change how you open the files in PS. I use the same to process. Go into your preferences and set up your external editor for CS3. Then when you right click to edit in PS--choose Photoshop.exe instead of CS3. Should work fine. It has to do with the current version of ACR and LR2.3--ACR in CS3 isn't the same RAW engine version and CS3 can't support the latest version.

    You guys are real slow . . I've got 3600 pennies in MY jar (hmm that means I'm 1% of the way there)

    Reynolds - that signature is much better.

    What a difference a day makes. Beautiful, warm weather; nice clear vistas just yesterday... and today, yuk. Taken about 2 minutes ago

    Aw, Spring. (More of this forecasted over the next several days... the joy.)

    I'm working on a project called "Local Color". Here are a few sample shots from the past week.

    The same four in B/W. (This comes of boredom, but I ended up liking the outcome.) Maybe I should call these "Color-less"?

    Question for Lloyd: your B/W conversion really inspires me!
    Did you ever reveal how you can get this powerful result?
    Best Regards,

    Alex, I'm honored. Truth is, I'm inspired by the b/w conversions of several others here, particularly those by Mike Hatam.

    However, I'm happy to share. The conversions in the images I posted just above were done in PS4 (works the same in PS3). I have an action I use to make the initial conversion, and then add a Curves adjustment layer to give it a little more "pop".

    I often do my conversions in Lightroom, where I have a couple of presets created, but these most recent posts were done in PS.

    True, I admire too Mike's work. Hope to be able soon to share with you all some photographs! (when work slows down a bit...)

    Thank you, Steve. Great stuff. I love that first one. My wife really liked as well. (I'd probably feel the same about the second as well, but it doesn't show up for me.)

    Nice work Lloyd. In this particular series, I prefer the color set. Those colors add great character to the images.

    Thanks Mike. I always appreciate your comments.

    I prefer the color as well, but that was the whole purpose of the project, so I'd better prefer it?! The b/w just came about out of some downtime and boredom.

    A few from a short walk this afternoon - with a couple signs of spring on the way (50 preAsph, Summarex, Summarex).

    Great stuff. That last one is a show stopper. I'm very much enamored of that Summarex, and here is a prime example of why.

    Not sure which I prefer. M8.2 with Summarit-M 35mm f/2.5 at f/2.5. Comments welcome.

    Beautiful images both, Simon. For my part, I prefer the first, as it is more of a moment of reality captured.

    The second, looks more like a drawing... it certainly has a wonderful quality, and is very special in its own right. No fault of the image, just a matter of taste between the two.

    Thanks Lloyd. I think I prefer the first one too, but the second was an attempt to convey a sense of warmth and a dreamlike state.

    The intent was certainly accomplished.
