Time flies and too hot to handle

  1. original.


    Just two for fun. The second has some noise. The camera was still at 800 iso and was a bit underexposed.
    I hate these programs like noise ninja etc. Don't like the plastic look.
    So there is noise. Who cares

    Don't care much for #1, but #2 is nice, well captured and could deserve a little more post-processing to bring out better shadow and low/middle tone detail.
  3. I like VERY much the ethical and cultural contradiction in #1... very well thought and executed!

    Thanks for sharing Alex!
  4. Hi panos,

    You hit the nail !!
    That's what i liked about the first one.
    About the contradiction. That's a very (im)popular subject at the moment in Holland.


  5. Bjorn,

    you are right, but it was underexposed. I tried several things but couldn't get it much better.

    Try adding a copy layer in PS and set blending mode to 'screen'. That should brighten things up a bit. I much prefer this to using Curves on underexposed images, because you are not getting posterization. (On the other hand, you cannot take this too far or overall contrast suffers).

    I too like them both but especially the first. These illustrate why I'll really never be a great photographer. I would never even think to take such shots.

    Bjorn, thanks for the hint of the underexposed shots. I'm about to give that a try.
  8. Thanks Bjorn,

    I just gave it a try and it looks much better.
    I really don't understand what happens but it works.

  9. Come on Flew !!
    You have some great work on your site !!

    Thanks for your comment
