    Ok guys and gals. Got the chance to go out on Petroleum Helicopter Inc. or PHI helipad near the Lafayette airport to take some shots. Just curious what people think of the shots?

    Nice photos! I really like the color in #1. #2 has a nice vintage look to me. I don't even know if that's what you were going for. Almost looks like it would be a picture clipped out of an old newpaper :lol: I like the effect of #3 also, is that difficult to do? I've never dealt with post processing as I don't think I'm up to the task yet.

    Not really that hard to do but it is pretty hard to get it perfect. I really dont think mine is perfect but it was only my 3rd try. I normally like my shots close to staight out the camera. I really dont like to edit alot. I was just learning new stuff and having fun tonight.

    The second shot is supposed to look like a chalk drawing. Like I said I was just trying stuff and I kinda liked that one!

    I like #1 the best. The angle and colors are quite appealing.

    #2 the editing is unflattering IMHO.

    #3, well... I'm just not a fan of selective coloring. I think it rarely improves an image.

    I feel that #3 is the best capture by far. Nothing fancy, just a nice, clean representation of that bird. But as inTempus said, I'm don't think the selective coloring doesn't anything good to the image. Consider using the same process to leave the heli beautiful and saturated, then just selectively desaturate the background a little, not a lot.
