i would like to see an hdr version of this, it would be incredible.
thats awesome. did you use any filters?
Beautiful image, just perfect!!
but imo, it lacks a little bit of contrast
LOL, this is a makeshift HDR. I'd bracketed about a stop on either side, then ran the three through PsCS4's 'merge to HDR.'
No, but PsCS4's adjustment layer palette for Black/White conversion has sliders for R G B C M Y, so it's as if using filters on b+w film.
Subtlety, my friend, subtlety! :mrgreen:
Thats a really beautiful photo it looks like something out of a book.:thumbup:
This is one of the few B&W photos done with a digital that I can say I truly like. The tones and contrast are perfect. Very good shot =)
Isn't this the shot you already posted, but called it a sunset?
John, I hope you don't mind (if you do let me know and I will delete) but i did some tone mapping with PS on the JPEG to get a HDR effect. I personnaly don't like the cartoony effect you can get but I do like high contrast B&W. Anyway, below is what I came up with; of course the noise is the compromise, which would probably be reduced with real HDR or a RAW image to work with.
Beautiful shot. Excellent capture & such a serene environment. I would love to see the comparison between the original and this shot. Keep up the fantastic work.
Thank you kristie.
Dang, I'm busted!
I can't show the original, pre-processing. Then everyone would truly know how crappy a photographer I am.
Well, I must say that your tone mapped version has much more contrast than my version! :mrgreen:
Interestingly, my original (with title 'sunset,' Josh ) was a pseudo-HDR, from three bracketed images, then run through photoshop's 'merge to HDR' tool. The original images were RAW.
I've learned quite a bit with this conversion, as PsCS4 is relatively new to me. I'm really liking the control this new black/white adjustment layer gives. Much more subtlety than the old channel mixer. :thumbup:
