    Hi Mike

    Now that is brilliant!

    Did you have that processing in mind when you took the shot because it works so well.

    I must try that because I didn't realise it could come out as well.

    Really great....if I get stuck, I will give you a call for help on that one please.

    All the best


  3. Thanks Ray...appreciate your input :smile:

    I DID have an idea when I took the shot that it might have some interesting post-processing possibilities...:wink:
  4. Mike, the Hayes Island Effect is one of my all time favorites and it did good on your shot. I will sometimes use it on a duplicate image then copy/paste it over the original and bring down the opacity a bit. Sometimes it works, others not so good.
  5. Thanks Jarrell....appreciate yours comments :smile:

    Hi Mike,

    this is really brilliant! Could you please explain me what the Hayes Island effect is?
  9. great work, I remember sitting at one of those little tables about 5 years ago, getting my daily dose of tex-mex fire food
  10. Thanks for the nice (but undeserved) comments...most of the work is easy once you learn the tutorial...then you can adjust to taste..:smile:

    Here it is..... play with it some and have fun..

  11. Thanks Phil....:smile: I did consume my share of Tex-Mex :D epressed
  12. Have to agree with the others! This is a great shot for that effect. I've played around with Hayes Island and keep waiting to apply it to the perfect shot. You've done just that.

    For those interested, there is a Hayes Island action available on ATNCentral website for free download.
  13. Thanks for the link, Mike. I'll have to give this a try. In your experience are there other types of subject matter, other than an outdoor cafe, where you have tried the "Hayes Effect"? What was the result?

    Thanks a lot. It is a great tutorial. Just tried it out myself.
  15. Thanks Kevin...appreciate your comments :smile: I have not tried the action yet, so will have to do that also and compare...:cool: 
  16. Thanks for commenting Virginia....you can use this effect on just about anything......:biggrin: ...most times it turns out pretty good...only occasionally does it just plain flop :frown: I usually try it on an image that looks pretty good but not sensational (you know what I mean :wink: )...to give things a boost.
