amino (412) 2009-03-08 07:22:38I liked your subject Michael. An old ruin, next to the oldest sea. A nostalgic site. I just thought i see how it looks like with some processing:
- increased contrast; adjusted curves and decreased brightness.
- i added a movie-like frame supporting the subject---for me this is an abstract story telling picture.
amino (412) 2007-12-01 23:56:29Increased contrast and decreased curves, saturation and brightness. I felt this can accentuate the darker side on the face, her wrinkles and the sense of aging.
Again, thanks for an interesting photo.
amino (412) 2007-11-28 10:24:07Your photo is very nice and I felt I had to share a workshop to explore other alternatives.
I cropped, and then used blur to get rid of the spots. I sharpenned eyes a little and increased brightness for her face.
I have to admit I am not a fan of faking beauty through image enhancements, but I guess we can idealize or dream?
Again, your shot is very nice, but this is only a variation. Hope you like it.
amino (412) 2007-11-28 10:07:13Dear Ryan,
If I may put in my two cents, but your capture is very nice anyways. I took the liberty to share another variation of this nice shot.
I sharpenned only one level, decreased curves and brightness, increased saturation slightly and increased yellow and red to give it a warmer feel.
Your shot is great as is but i wanted to share this one too.
cheers and glad you liked Syria, a must visit for people interested in history and archeology.
amino (412) 2007-11-22 22:13:45Sharpenned, decreased saturation and brightness; increased contrast slightly.
Again, the photo is great as is and I understand how you might not prefer photoshop....but i just thought i share another option...Thanks for a pretty photo. Reminds me of places I visited ...cheers
amino (412) 2007-11-18 09:50:55Hello Andrew,
This is just a variation. I like your photo as is and I think you should post of a few of it but with different colour tones and sharpness. Wonderful capture ...
in this one, i just gave some yellow tones and decreased brightness just a little....i still think yours is nicer, but your photo is worth experimenting with:)
amino (412) 2007-10-12 02:31:10Hi Maria,
I liked your perspective and framing so i thought i can emphasize it by tiny white frame.
I used photoshop to sharpen only one level, a very small touch of yellow, saturation and contrast. A very small increment change in lightness too.
Thanks for the photo. I feel nostalgic to that place as I lived 5 min. away!
