Something different!!

By Anthony      
** News Update **

I got a 30D today, wow, what a step up from the old 300D.

So, in honour of the old camera, and to celebrate the new one, here is something different.

New Brighton Lighthouse, Wirral.

Shot RAW, processed in Phase 1, some digital work done in PS CS2. Added a nd grad effect to the sky, added a mild velvia effect, and ended up with virtual photographer, I used the Mountain filter, to boost the contrast and colour a wee bit more.

Any and all comments are very welcome.

Hi Robin

Thanks for the mod, looks good. Bit too noisy for me, but I can see where you were going with it.

Nice to hear from you.

Very nice Anthony, did you use the spot meter? Is there any chance we can meet up some time in the next week or so, so I can have play with the 17-85.

Yes, spot metered.

I'll be down at New Brighton on Sunday lunchtime ish, for a few hours. I'll be over by the lifeguard station shooting the Jet Ski's. Feel free to pop down, and you can try the lens.

Otherwise, give me a call one night, and we can sort something out.

Nice sharp shot and pleasant colours. When you say 'added a mild velvia effect' how do you do this? John

Hi John

I have a Velvia plug in for Photoshop, I have tweaked it a little, and applied it over the top of the image to warm it a little bit. Sadly, I cant remember where I got it from now, if I do remember, I'll post it here.
