Oktoberfest 2018 - The Bucket

Discussion in 'Photo Meme' started by djh63, Oct 2, 2018.

  1. Let's use this thread to discuss alternative edits to any of our Oktoberfest photos or to share other images which didn't quite make the grade.
     
  2. As suggest by Jim @Pa@Pa I have cropped my first image gently from the top to even up the amount of sky in the frame with the water showing between the two bridges.

    _DSC8189-2.

  5. I really like the highlights along the roofline from this angle.
     
  6. Actually, I think I like that better than the original. The brown sunflower forest provides a nice background.

    I like the color shot better, especially with the locks.

    I like the edit on the color version.

    I like the angle on the original better, but this backdrop better. Either one are good on their own, for me.

    Looks like some fun family activity, great backstop for the practice.

    Day 3 scenic - colors were a bit washed out, increasing saturation started looking a bit cartoonish compared to what my eyeball was seeing, so I decided to post the B&W.

  14. Thank you for all the replies. Yes, it is tilted, as the sunflowers show. Of course there is a little hill, to the right, so the car must face downwards. But still, it's tilted. The background is what made me picture this one.
     
  15. Could well have been your main photo, Jim.

    Great set. I remember your first model from previous shoots. Looks like she'll get some more camera time this year too. :)  Also looks like you're grooming another model...
     
  18. Here is a Day 6 shot showing the engine of the Amtrak train, for those who haven't seen one close up.

    They are sooo beautiful, and I cannot believe how Mayla has grown. Truly a princess. And our prince is extremely handsome. I'm glad you rounded them up, Roland; what wonderful portraits!! :)

    Day 5 bucket shots...

    All with DC set to zero. I didn't reduce the saturation, like I wanted to do for day 5 with my theme of saturation, as they looked washed out. The first one was OK, but the second and third looked terrible reducing saturation.
