The Atrium

By ChiliMan
First off, HUGE thanks to Barbara (barbarahirst) for her most valued User Award on yesterday’s chandelier shot. Majorly unexpected SmileSmile

Second off, loved the comments GrinGrin


Alrighty…final part of this hotel series (says the yokel) Wink

Looking up at the atrium…

…and here’s something I think I’ve done only once: upload a straight-from-cam pic.

At the very least, I would normally apply a 10% increase in Contrast. But that didn’t work here ‘cos the top got too bright and the bottom got too dark. I tried all the other usual stuff…but something or other got out of whack. So I thought…leave it. I’ve left it uncropped too.

I’m gonna flip on Mods in case anyone wants to have a fiddle.

V2: I did BW and Sepia conversions in-camera and put ‘em alongside the original. Those are straight-from-cam too.


PS Gonna upload and run. Will catch you all soon.

Hey Andrew....yikes all three are very strong!!

You callit an atrium but I see no bees!! Tongue

I think I'm calling it as sepia, then mono , then the colour version in that order as my favourites...but a hard call twixt second & third.

Excellent work..and I think you made the right decision to leave as is.

Fabulous fist shot (for which you have my UA) and an interesting triptych. I actually like it just the way it is but there is lots of potential for other versions of this so I'm going to have a play to get those other versions - not better, just different.

I too have only had one pic I uploaded straight from the cam Andrew.
I usually need a little tweak on contrast too.
I spent about 10 minutes on that pic wondering what I had done ''wrong'' to make it ''right'' !!
Good graphic shots here.

Love this, wonderfully abstract. Angles, curves, light, all interacting with each other.

This is a great abstract Andrew and I'm going with the original although I also love the first in v2. More excellence from the country bumpkin!

Way-hey! Thank you so much for your UA, Lynne GrinGrin And thanks for the Mods! My favourites are 1, 2 and 3 in that order. Actually, V1 pretty much hits the nail on the head for what I hoping to get.

Thanks, everyone Smile

This particularly special-- the darks and light, along with the lines lead the eyes about a bit, allowing one to enjoy the colors and textures--which are fabulous--- this works perfectly as graphic design!
