Another Beach

By jaspernina  
Another image of Newgale beach. Haven't been out much so thought I'd play with this one in Photoshop. I like the vivid colours and really enjoy this kind digital manipulation/enhancement (although don't really know where the line is drawn between the two). However there does seem to be a lot of photographers on this site who disapprove of this kind of digital work, but i like it, so awfully sorry to the purists.

Thankyou for your previous remarks regarding my uploads.

a fantastic image. The foreground and way you've caught the water is just great!

I'd maybe have a go at removing the jet trails thought.

Well quite a lot Smile
In Photoshop, using the new layer adjustments, i slowly go through the options, like. curves, colour balance, exposure.

There are an awful lot of TOGS who disagree with this kind of thing but i enjoy it, and love learning more in PhotoShop so make know apologies Smile

Give it ago, it is great fun, also search the net for video tutorials, that's how i'm learning.

Guess there's room for both types of images. Nice to see an untouched one now and again - but manipulation is fun (although I'm not very good at it yet) - and this image is just stunning.

Just read the repeated to death threads in the Forums about modded images, you'll find dozens who would say that my kind of manipulation goes past enhancement. Smile

Super light and colours and where the wave crashes just kills me.

By the way, I'm half purist in that I LOVE when pics turn out great with hardly anything needing to be done to them.

But, I LOVE what the digital age has to offer too.

As for manipulation/enhancement critics, the digital age should not be picked on. Film users have been doing serious manips/enhancements in the traditional darkroom and on prints for ages.

So the only difference now is that it costs a helluva lot less.

Just my two cents Smile
