I think I'm funny.
I think you're funny too! Ha ha!!!
Did you mean to post this up for critique, though?
Thanks - I did think about just putting this in the general gallery, since it isn't a 'serious' or 'art' image. But, I am always looking for constructive criticism, even if it looks like I'm fishing for laughs.
For this lightweight image, here's the steps involved:
- take nine photos with different setting and compositions
- choose best few for review, do light retouching, and select the best
- return to the unmodified file, and in PSE 3:
-- correct keystoning
-- crop to 3:2
-- remove colour cast
-- decrease shadows
-- increase global brightness
-- increase brightness of the BMG sign on the door
-- reduce noise
-- USM I and USM II
-- Save as PSD, flatten, save as TIFF, resize, save for Web.
In total, I've probably spent two or three hours on this. (Not including the time posting and yapping about it online.)
So enjoy the joke and I hope people think it's as funny as I do; but if there's any critique, comments or quibbles, let me know.
