This is a stunning shot. I love the processing you’ve done, wish I knew how to do this.
Hi Raquel thx for the comments. The clours were those of the sky – sunset reflecting onto clouds – so nothing really changed there. Processing for this consists of taking 3 different exposures (tripod mount) – processing in HDR software with high contrast – then into photoshop to remove tree branches and the base support just by cloning and recloning some of the lower sky using lower opacity at the edges on the base – then some very simple “dodging” to get a little more light on the face – last but not least was to apply a gradient mask layer (radius setting /inverted) which is set for 40% soft light. Obviously some people like the efeect, others don’t. Please bubblemail me if you want more info.
Wow, thank you for the info, I will have to try a few of those techniques I’ve not used before and see what I can come up with on some old shots of mine.
This is really exquisite, Jim! It has a real otherworldly quality and marvellous colours!
thankyou Gerda – I try to find an interesting story or some wonderful colour and contrast within cemteries rather than just old cold stone work by itself
Beautiful capture Jim.
beautiful mood you’ve created here Jim…as Gerda said, a real otherworldy feel to this..wonderful!
thx- glad it appeals to you Louise
