David Fisher replied to David Fisher's discussion Lightroom + Topaz Clean used on photo from Tankfest 2014, Dorset, UK in the group Photo Criticism
"That's a bit ahead of me Ron - whilst I have done a little Elements work, all my pp is in Lightroom at the moment, plus the Clean plug-in. An interesting video though - perhaps I'll do a Photoshop course this winter!"

"If you use Clean on skin then you need to add back some texture.   I usually do that in Clean itself but there is another way by using frequency separation   Its a bit complex but you only need to make the high frequency layer…"

"Yes, it was dusty, but I added some to get rid of the background. The tank is moving and I shot all day at low shutter speeds to get some effect of movement - the tracks show a little. This shot was at 1/80 so I may have got away a little slower,…"

Ron replied to David Fisher's discussion Lightroom + Topaz Clean used on photo from Tankfest 2014, Dorset, UK in the group Photo Criticism
"Looks pretty good, like a very dusty scene.  I think you could bring back some detail on the right side treads.  I use T-clean and love it but Topaz needs to update it to add masking.  Clean is also very effective on skin if used…"

Lightroom + Topaz Clean used on photo from Tankfest 2014, Dorset, UK

Using the Topaz add-on converts the image to something like a pen and ink wash, which I find effective. What do you think of it please?See More

David Fisher replied to David Fisher's discussion Misty Evening in the group Photo Criticism
"Thank you Robert - I think you have hit the nail on the head in regard to the light meter - in fact I've been looking at the Sekonic range. I took the original shot too hurriedly just before leaving the location. Still, I shall persevere to see…"

Robert Davis replied to David Fisher's discussion Misty Evening in the group Photo Criticism
"This version is better but without seeing the original camera file, it's difficult to say what one should or should not do to improve this, personally I feel that this image could have been inproved upon prior to the release of the…"

"Robert, if you have time, I would appreciate your further guidance. Having considered all the comments and suggestions, I decided I really don't want a tighter crop. I've tried to go with the natural direction of the light (as on the front…"

Anon A. Mouse replied to David Fisher's discussion Misty Evening in the group Photo Criticism
"A strong picture provides an interesting organization of elements; shows order in a messy world.  It's like the difference between a successful joke and random text.  In photography what you keep out of the frame is often as important…"

Ron replied to David Fisher's discussion Misty Evening in the group Photo Criticism
"Its easy enough to desaturate the sky, I just usually like them blue so I added some blue.  I use Photoshop CC with Topaz Clarity plugin.  "

David Fisher replied to David Fisher's discussion Misty Evening in the group Photo Criticism
"Thanks for your suggestion Gary, I too think there's potential in the image. At the moment I'm going to follow it through here if the guys stay with me, but I'll keep your 1X.com suggestion in mind."

Wind Surfer for Critique

Posted on December 31, 2013 at 12:49pm 16 Comments

Feel free to crit as you see fit - my pp skills are limited and, whilst happy with the subject, composition and general image, the blue in the waves bothers me, but changing white balance seems to spoil the overall look. Can I do something in either Elements or Lightroom to improve things?…

Although there's really no particular focal point to this, I rather like the overall effect - do you think it works?

Most professionals shooting from planes or helicopters remove the door so they are not shooting through a window.  They remove the lens hood to prevent the wind from buffeting it and causing camera movement.   They also take multiple bodies so they don't have to change lenses and expose the inside of their cameras to the wind.

Most of my photos still have the EXIF data attached.  If a file was Saved for Web the data is stripped.  If you view the image full size, you can use an EXIF viewer to see the data.  I usually just right click and save the file to my machine then look at it with Photoshop or Bridge.  I added a comment about the settings for the plane to that photo.
