Hey Giant....thats a pretty good PS...so cool in fact I can't see it? Is this some kind of Danish "Emperor's New Clothes" photoshop trick? :wink:

Anyway, not to disappoint those who have been expecting to see a Prince, I snapped one yesterday......

Image

Edit....I see you got yours working now :grin:.... some nice PS work as well. Congratulations.

Nice one, clearly shows that you don't need any fancy equipment to participate in this gallery post :top:

Here's a picture I took with a SE K550i a while ago I had in PS for a few minor tweaks. Thought I'd trow that in here as well. As for what it is, I have no idea, anyone care to guess? :ponder:

My advice would be to go buy yourself some expensive photography equipment you muppet.....none of it is in focus :grin:

For a more cinematic approach, I cropped, sharpened (although its hard to sharpen blur :wink: ) lightened and then applied a colour trick to enrich the blue of the glove. A small vignette poured with loving care at the end :P

Boonen, I'm guessing thats the end of a bar? .....of course I'm wrong :wink:

You led me astray before LJ! :lol: But it is looking a bit better, thanks.

I have an EOS300, although I would love its digital brother. Still, wouldn't fit in my jersey pocket!

:wife: <we know you aren't very good at picture taking, but you forgot to post another crappy one>:tomato:

I think Ras would agree with me....the trick with PS, like so much else in life...."less is more". Start off with a good image and sure, PS shop it, but make sure the PS adjustments aren't too obvious.....thats what makes an image a winner (along with the subject matter)

.......if you dont, you run the risk of losing the credibility of the image...case in point......

Image

I think thats about as good advice as I could offer. Nice work though Giant :wink:

My two cents.
The weather is very bad here so I unfortunately can't take pictures outside :(
