Alan_Kolnik (564) 2005-04-04 20:49:18This is the first time I've posted a workshop on my own picture, but would like feedback. This is the same picture, using a technique called "High Pass Sharpening" rather than USM to sharpen up the picture. I also adjusted the levels to brighten it, though that may be a mistake as it loses the dark, elegant feeling of the actual location, somewhat.
HPS is described at:

1. Cropped a little
2. Shadow higlight 20%
3. Created another layer and used masking to darken edges
4. Manually adjusted midtone levels to best contrast
5. Added Saturation a bit and UNSHARP MASK 15%
Alan_Kolnik (564) 2004-10-27 17:13:51After feedback requesting more sharpness in a couple of my postings, I thought I'd run a test by posting this picture again after resharpening it one more time once I reduce it to the size for posting here. Curious if the difference is apparent, and which version is preferable.

mpb001 (4602) 2004-09-18 13:14:26This is a super shot, but I personally thought that it is a bit too red, so I used the color balance mode to slightly warm the image bt adding a little yellow, and cyan. I also gave the water a little exposure in curves. I sharpened slightly before reposting.
