Award Shortlist   


By teocali
The Red Arrows at Dunsfold Wings & Wheels 2010. V1 has been simply manipulated using the Selective Colour and Hdr Toning Tools in CS5. I have deliberately increased the noise using the Hdr Tone Tool detail slider as I feel the grain adds to the force of the image. V2 is the original, just tweaked on levels.
Up for Mods if anybody wants to have a go.
Settings: F/7.1 1/640sec ISO100 AV@420mm handheld

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my last upload - always interesting and helpful to read views on two versions.

The original's good in it's own right but I particularly like the work that you've done on V1 - very effective Sylvia!

V1 for the impact through the tweak to levels or contrast that you've given it

Fantastic image Sylvia - I really like what you've done in V1, giving the image so much more impact and colour. Keep experimenting.

Really good images, both look like pastel paintings or drawings. Great composition its nice to see a different perspective given to the "Arrows" - Great image.

For me these are right on the button Sylvia especially V 1. I love the power and impact you have created in V1. Full of mood and atmosphere. You will have to show me how it is done oneday.

On 1st viewing I though that this had some great atmostphere and was so diffferent to the usual display shots and on reading your narrative I can see why.
Fantastic treatment.

Super shot. I like the direction that #1 is moving in but the HDR seems to have introduced a green tinge to the clouds towards the top of the frame, and the noise makes the image look a little over-worked, to me. I had a go with a simple curves adjustment, a little warming of the colours and a bit of a crop, for a similar take on the shot.
