Image taken in historic Jellore Cottage at Berrima in the Southern Highlands of NSW (Australia).

Not HDR – but shot in RAW and treated in CS3 with some pointers from the tutorials of the amazingly talented Mike Savad (thank you my friend for generously documenting your process – not that I managed to follow all of it!!! Still on the VERY steep learning curve!!!)

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!

    Magic, Rosalie !!!! What a beautiful moody atmosphere with that wonderful lighting, stunning detail and tones !!! You just continue to amaze, getting better and better !!

  • Phil this bears little resemblance to the ‘before’ image – with 10 versions finally staring at me and daring me to choose!!! I am gratified that you like this – I was totally ‘over it’ in the end!!! xx

    Beautiful RD, I love Mike’s work too. :)

  • Just try the tutorials Max – mind bending!!! But one does pick up lots of tips – it certainly transformed this from “blah”. Thanks mate

  • As I mentioned to Phil – this was a real rescue job and I ended up with 10 versions … what a wonderful learning experience!!! It will take a few days to get up energy for another … !!! Thanks for the kind words Warren.

    Simple is more!

  • I agree Larry although I think I made this far more complicated in the processing than I needed to – practise will get me there!!! Thanks mate.

    another magnificent image from our Rosalie!!! Yes, I read Mike’s tutorials too … wowzer … it’ll take me a while longer to understand his guidelines … you’ve done beautifully!!!!!

  • Hehe when you work out all the intricacies Lois let me know – when I was stumped I’d skip the step or make something up – he is so clever, I think I will end up with just some pointers from it all, and never be up to his standard!!! Thanks for the kind words.
