Photography – Editing

22 Oct

Such a strange week. I decided to take a break and fully concentrate on photography offline and everyday there is something in my s-p-a-m box. If you are here accidentally even though your google search are into something else, I bid you welcome. Though this blog may not be your cup of tea, just enjoy the pictures while you are here. If you like it here, come back. 🙂

More for the serious stuff. I have another picture of cows backlighted by sunset. However the camera did not capture the correct lighting.

Original picture

You cannot see much details as this is too dark . Technical blah blah : Focal Length – 29.5mm, Shutter – 137.3sec, F5.3, ISO 50.

So, I tried doing some editing from Olympus Studio 2 and this is the result.

1st edit

Much much better I think though there was a lot of noise in the foreground. I was told there was dust on the camera lens. Noise reduction was set at 100% and a touch of the blurring function. A little tweak here and there for brightness and shading and voila. Could be improved further I think. Too much brightness on the right side. The wooden post in the foreground could be a sore eye.

After cropping, this is the final result.

3rs result

Still debating if the tree tops have been cropped too much and the poor black cow is overshadowed. But I will stand by this.

Like riding a bicycle, photography is a little like that. Learning curve is very steep but the more you do it, the better you get. That is what I am aiming for. If you have ideas on how to improve this photo, would love to hear from you. I am all ears. 😉

Have a great weekend, everybody!
