Misty Morning Horses.

By WelshKiwi  
This is taken from the same place as the image I uploaded yesterday. Llanberis in North Wales.

Only, I have done a normal Lee trick, and gone in closer.

Ive paid a little more attention to this one, but Im still not at all sure when is it too much or when is it not enough. Hope that makes sense ??

Well its all practise and it would be no fun at all if I got it all right on the first go, so at least this will be an on going project. To last me the rest of my life no doubt....... Smile

Im really getting into this digital stuff now, the more Im learning and reading the less bl**dy scared of it I am.

I need to practise removing dust bunnies, but I just seem to make a mess of it all, so Ive left it alone up until now.

Also need help with "Noise" removal. This is GRAIN in film terms isnt it. What button do I press for that lol Smile

Once again, Ive ticked the "Mods Allowed" button. I find this a very useful tool indeed and Im learning so much from them.

Thanks to Joe in particular, he takes such an effort with me and is a real gem for helping me so much. I hope he is beginning to see a difference.

I, personally cant wait for my 1 year anniversary on Epz, Im hoping that there will be a huge improvemnet in my PF.

Thanks for looking, I know I get so much pleasure from seeing all the different portfollios on here.

Have a nice day.

Lee Smile

Not too sure about the frame, Lee, don't think it's adding anything to the image.

There is some really good free noise reduction software "imagenomic noiseware" is the one Paul uses.

Done a mod for you, tweaked levels, changed the frame - - not done anything about the noise, tho' cos the software is on Paul's system.

Very impressed with the comp, and the birdie Smile

I have to say that when I scrolled down to write my comments everything I wanted to say had been said!
Great 'old master' style but I find the frame overpowering.
I'm personally a fan of 'Noise Ninja'. I do find that treating noise takes a bit of observation as sometimes it smooths things so much that you want to sharpen, and that seems to add noise, and you end up with a vicious circle. Sad But that may be because I'm too impatient!

Great landscape - I use noise ninja but find you only need very slight adjustments to improve the image

Hello you, lovely comp and work... There's no size in your image and that will give you issues. There are a lot of Noise reduction programs about but Noise Ninja and DeNoise are my favs and work through PS as a plugin... Put a mod up changing the levels, curves and noise oh and the black border.... Oh and we are going to Dunraven

OK, dust bunnies are removed with the healing brush, the one that looks like a sticking plaster. Choose a soft brush - I tend to use the soft airbrush. Alter the size of the brush to be larger that the dust spot - press [ for smaller and ] for larger. Click near the spot then click on the spot, brush slightly if needed to remove. It won't work near dark edges so don't try so you'll need to use the clone tool, again use the soft airbrush.

Noise - try lassoing the sky, feather to maybe 20 pixels on a 72 dpi image, then go filter, noise, despeckle - repeat if needed and that should be good enough for web use.

You could also try selective sharpening. Lasso the ground, feather then sharpen using your prefered method. This will leave the sky unsharpened but then clouds tend to be soft and fluffy.... Wink

I think it's a great image, very reminiscent of an old painting (don't ask me by whom!)

Thanks Kris, Ian, Chris, Albert, Dave, Proz and Mark.

All the help you have given me has been cut and pasted into a "Helpful Comments" folder on my desktop, so I can refer to them.

One things Im also learning is that everyone does everything differently. Which is great, but aint half confusing when it comes to PS.

Have a nice day.

that's the thing with PS, there's always half a dozen ways of achieving the same thing. The trick is to find, then use, the one you're most comfortable with.

Really nice pic, don't like the frame, and you've got a couple of dust spots you could clone out above the trees on the left Smile
