In the desert every job becomes a dusty one, in particular the execution of large scale levelling works.
I used curves layer to bring out the dust clouds better but believe that the image could be a bit darker to bring out the dust more.
This has the basics to be an exceptionally good shot but at the moment isnt quite there for me. I'd like to see some of the blacks a bit deeper and a bit more tonal range without the loss of detail.
Obviously some of this could be done through using curves adjustments possible with soft light blending mode in photoshop. A little bit of selective dodging and burning might help too esp around the cab area.
Another option with this type of shot is duo or tri toning ... this can help give control over each colour using the curves adjustment options within the toning itself and by using one warmer tone you cuold probably give this a more desert orientated feel.
good comments. Thank you for that.
I agree that the dust could show more depth, I'll try some of the suggestions you mention and come back with a repost later on.
Any thoughts on the B&W; is it appealing or would you rather see a coloured one?
Id like to see both but for me this has the potential to be a very framatic mono given the right treatment.
Superb atmosphere and it's not steam ! Rob. Ron.
wath this space, both wil appear soon.
no, I can vouch for it as the wind was blowing it right onto me
There were moments I was surrounded by a white out.
My camera was not too happy with this and responded by giving my lots of dust spots.
like this very much will be interesting to see once you have a play do like it BW think it has a bit more drama but would like to see colour version too.
Good as is Robert, but Dan is right, could be much better
