A quick view of bglimaye's recent activity.

  • Sunset mood

    Quote:A gorgeous scene, the boat has such character!

    I felt it looked a little 'flat' though. I've taken it into Photoshop Elements 9 and made a few tweaks here and there, i.e. I went into 'Enhance > Adjust Lighting > Levels' and adjusted the blue. In 'Quick' I adjusted the Shadows/Midtones/High Lights. I nudged the saturation slightly and used the noise filters to remove a little noise which was in the sky.

    A quick re-size and sharpen and here it is - I hope you approve! Thank you for giving me the opportunity, it's quite fun working on someone elses work - even if all the adjustments were tiny! Smile

    (ooh! I forgot, I did crop a little off left, right and top)

    Thank you very much for your modification. I like it. If possible is it possible for you to send to my email id.? Please confirm

  • Sky after the sunset from my apartment

    Quote:I think this might have looked better in landscape format, bg, because the expanse of blue sky at the top doesn't have enough features to keep the viewer's attention. A more dynamic sunset cloud formation would warrant this much space and this format. However, it's good to try something different. There also needs to be a focal point, something large and strong of interest on the horizon, rather than rows of small buildings. There may not be anything on the horizon that you could have used, however. But always look for something like a very tall building, a large tree or the like. Although the wires were unavoidable, they can be removed. There is usually sufficient light at sunset for you to use a lower ISO setting, and this can avoid noise/grain in your image, which is evident here. In my modification I cropped drastically and added canvas to the bottom in order to achieve two thirds sky and one third land. I enhanced the buildings along the horizon, adjusted levels and did a bit of noise removal. I also cloned out the wires in the sky.
    You may find this useful.

    Thanks Pamela for time to time advise and modification. The modification looks beautiful.

  • peacock hinge

    Quote:I am a lover of short depth of field but maybe you have overdone it a tiny bit, I would love to see it all in focus with the backround out, I'm not so sure about the dark area on the right either maybe clone the red to hide it, if you hand held it well done 40th with a 105mm is pushing things to the edge. If you used a tripod why the high iso? You see how much easier it is to critic if you can give us that sort of info when you upload. It's a nice idea and well seen.

    Thanks Phill for your comments . This is a Hinge of Swing in Brass metal on the Background is of red and green Window curtains .
