Red Roaster

By darrenackers
This is my entry for a local camera club competition, with the set subject 'Friendship'. It's a re-processed version of my picture from a couple of months ago.

Following on from MadTrace , BigCol and Iain I hope we all do well.

Really like the processing done on this it really works well.
Should do well too, if there's any justice!

Thanks Col, it's based on the ' Dave Hill effect . You basically max out all the basic settings in Lightroom, and some serious curves for added effect.

Thanks I was just about to add that you'll have to let me know how you did it but the link and basic outline give me a clue. Cheers.

Here's where I first found out how to do it: link

Try that, and then play around a little. I set up 'presets' in lightroom which do this as well as a 75%, 50% and 25% version. I could send them you if you like.

Justice? from a club judge? There hasn't been much of that recently!

Darren - I also like it allot - I've always loved this image as it summed up our day in Brighton perfectly.

I'm going to see how I can set up a preset for this in Aperture.

Still makes me smile as I now remember what we were laughing about... Wonder if Iain still has that image?

Think this is a wonderful shot as like Iain said it sums up the whole day in the one image x

Like the re-working, great capture of a very natural scene. Geoff
