Artist's Description

Taken off a shop window in downtown Singapore, with all the distracting reflections of the traffic and the people standing by the bus stop.

The lighting was poor and the image appeared rather noisy, with lots of specks. Some Photoshop experimentation was needed.

The usual adjustments of brightness, contrast, color saturation, etc helped somewhat. But the image still looked poor.

Then a thought arose… Try Noise > Median.

This has the effect of blurring, but it is not quite the same. rather, it merges neighbouring pixels to create a more uniform look.

It worked wonderfully. Such a simple adjustment – just move the median slider to the right until I got the level of smoothness that I wanted.

The result was a dreamy feel that gives added meaning to this image.

Sales are often illusions. More often than not, the customer is offered a token discount rather than the great bargain that he/she dreams about.

Dream on…
