Jolly Monk

By ErictheViking
Not the most compositionally wonderful of shots and perhaps a little touristy, but this is my first processed image taken from a 120mm film.

Image was process firstly for levels and then ablack and white layer was used as an illumination layer to enhance the image detail.

Has it worked out or is their room for improvement. really will appreciate your critique with this image.

In my modification I increased the exposure , decreased the red saturation, increased the lightness and added a little sharpening

Your text is a little confusing. I assume you have scanned a 120 colour transparency? Quite well done. A bit heavy and dark and I'm not sure what your black and white layer would be for? There does look to be a touch too much magenta. I would reduce that and just brighten a bit.

Im not a scanning slides expert, never have done it, Ill leave that to Paul, but on the surface youve retained a great deal of detail in this, which I think for me means success.

The colour balance isnt quite right. I opend this in ACR, and used the white wall behind on the left as a reference, and also used Auto mode, and both essentially came up with the same result. Magenta was reduced by -15 towards green, and yellow was reduced slightly.

Then setting black and white points with threshold and levels made some difference to contrast, but not tone, - so I think the mod is about tight. The jolly Friar is originally a little underexposed, and Ive lifted the exposure theres a little, and cloned a few twigs etc. Touristy perhaps, but you dont see many tourists using a Bronica with 120 slide film!

Hope this helps,
