Whoa, that is a lovely piece! The long weathered boards lead the eye in nicely to the rest of the picture. After that, the shack as well as desert terrain has loads of visual interest. Great angle on this one.
Well done! This is definitely a favorite of mine.
Nice photo,lots of different textures contrasting with the sky in the background
That is a great shot. Nice work .
are those boards long as a result of distortion or were they really that long? either way, its a lovely picture!!!
Thanks. It was so pretty out there. I just found the biggest piece of junk and bit in.
Thanks. I'm liking doing this more the more I do it.
Thank you Beth. I can't really remember. There's so many nails. I shot this location about ten years ago when the building was standing. The building was a bit longish, this was probably the roof. Some of the look is probably due to the wide angle. I was about 2-1/2 feet from the flowers. So, both.
I think explaining what can be complex processes becomes tedious. I've learned what I do by developing procedures to emulate the effects I admire in others photos with minimal questions- I'd hate to explain every shot to everyone. That being said, I don't mind every now and again. Today can be a rare occasion
Key on this shot is low iso (lo-1 nikon, iso approx ~64). Daylight, cloudy lighting allowed just one exposure to be adequate.
Slight level and curve adjustment on the sky. Some burning right side.
Use layer masks to lighten far shed with levels, and adjust saturation on all the lumber. Adjust curves on lumber. Dodge highlights on dead bush. Burn shadows into grass on right. Slight burn to accentuate shadows on flowers. Mask everything but sky to smart sharpen 99% and radius of 1. Save- resize, merge layers, duplicate background, sharpen, erase sky, merge and save to upload.
Not always taboo, just a pain in the ass to explain. Sometimes it's like laying rubber in front of the high school and being long gone before anyone can look under the hood. Some things are easier learned by individual trial and error.
Took about an hour to process and about 25 minutes to explain.
