  2. Another wonderful series of VB candids. I look forward to each and every one. I see a coffee table book in the making!

    just like anthony said above

    these images need to be in a book
    i love what you've done here
    your unique post-processing "perspective" is refreshing to no end

    Bob - I also shoot with a D-80. I have never gotten colors, contrast like you have here. I love the colors. Would you mind sharing camera settings or post processing techniques. Once again I really like what you have done.

    Love the PP Bob. Great set.
  16. Chris, Gary,

    Thanks for looking ... much appreciated.


    When PP, I usually boot the saturation a little and the contrast. Try boosting the saturation by 9-12 and see how it looks. You can also try levels and curves. I hope that helps .... if not, send me a PM.

  17. Bob, these are excellent. I don't see a reason to be "slammed" for these at all. IMO, the processing makes the shot. Whether you did them in B&W, HDR, Lucis Art, etc. It really doesn't matter. Please post more, and maybe share a bit of what you used to process them. Fantastic series.

    I am totally captivated by your images and post processing. I look forward to future posting from you. No reason to be apprehensive about posting, your work speaks for its self. Thanks for sharing!!!!

    Thanks for looking and your kind comments .......... I hope I didn't imply people here were harsh. They have been very supportive and kind. I just try to acknowledge that this kind of PP is not everyone's taste .... and perhaps because these are suppose to be candid shots, maybe the PP would not be welcomed. I'm appreciate that it is well accepted.
