Monastery

By tashi
Good Morning!
Hope you all had a nice weekend!

As for me, I was playing with photoshop!
Yes, you've guessed correct! Today's upload is one of my experimental images! The image is that of a Buddhist monastery; one that I had captured during my last visit to Dehradun .... located at the foothills of the Mussoorie hills in North India. It's an evening capture. Original version is quite dark.

Since this happens to be my first real attempt at photo processing (earlier it was only till cropping!), I would truly appreciate getting comments ... with criticism n suggestions, please.

Meanwhile, my sincere thanks to you all for your kind cs n vs on my yesterday's upload. By the way, the city in yesterday's upload is in South India and today we are in North India!

With profound thanks.
Rani

An excellent image, Rani, good work. Practice makes perfect, I know (and do) very little in Photoshop, mainly crop, sharpen, saturation. Carol

Great shot with detail and excellent work on your first attempt on levels and tones in photoshop work. I think you are already getting close to pro. You have managed to lift the brightness in the image and retained detail and textures in sky. Well done.

Lovely work tashi.

The basic enhancement in Photoshop is the level, contrast, curve, removing dirt, sharpen. Check the horizontal and vertical lines of the image. Like this subject, the horizontal lines are not equal, slightly clinging downward at the right side. Fascinating structure.

Thanks for the above observation. It's much appreciated; I should be definitely working on it; need to practice more!

Well done Rani and keep at it. This is a good attempt but remember Photoshop cannot rescue a bad photograph so try to get it right in camera.
26 Oct 2010 12:23PM
Nice one Rani, You have done somme good work in PS, I agree with some of the other comments regarding the horizontal and vertical lines, a touch out on the right, I use the crop tool to do this

Very exotic tower of a monastery. Great detail and well presented so we can see the scale of things.

Wow you get about, lots of travelling.
You asked for comments, well in photoshop you can rotate by a custom amount of degrees, i'd rotate this shot by about 3 or 4 degrees left just to straighten it. Also i'd try and enhance the colours a bit more with a virbrance or saturation control.
These are lovely places - thanks for sharing.

Nice shot Rani, did'nt know this sort of thing existed in Dehradun, thought you had to go a bit further into the himalaya to see this.
Thanks for your lovely comments by the way.
