I was playing around in Lightroom2 (Demo) with some older images that have been sitting around. I pulled up a couple of an old falling down shack that were way underexposed. I almost deleted them straight off, but I boosted the exposure and the brightness, and I got something that I really like. This is the way underexposed image. It was nearly black. #1 Shutter 1/400 Aperture 4.5 ISO 100 I really like the warmth, I like the noise/grain, and I love the overal feel this image has. But when I look at a "properly" exposed image of the same subject, I don't like it as much at all. I tried to PP to look like the image above, and really didn't come very close. See below. #2 Shutter 1/50 Aperture 4 ISO 100 No matter what I did, I couldn't get the shack to "brown up" like the first pic. So my questions are which image appeals to you the most as far as color, sharpness/noise, and overall feel? Is this "creative exposure" acceptable? I could see doing this for certain shots, to get that feel. What can I do to get the wood in the second photo to match the first image? Thanks!
