Mist runner and Topaz Adjust enhancement
Apr 25, 2011

I jumped on an early train to go into Melbourne (Australia) this morning seeking a sunny picture of the interstate XPT train departing. But when I got into the city, it was shrouded in mist. As I waited on the bridge near the station for the train to head for me, the mist lifted, then descended again, and a guy ran across the bridge behind me. I turned and grabbed the shot.

The original, no PP, just sized and resaved to JPEG in PhotoLine. The camera was set to daylight (the sun symbol), which I have adjusted to be just a trifle warm. To my eye, this looks pretty much like what I was actually seeing.

Then I tried applying some Topaz Adjust filters. I mostly use these filters to add punch to pix -- but this time I wanted to go the other way. This shot with the Smooth & Flat filter applied.

And finally, the with Venetian style panting filter applied. I think I prefer this one best, but maybe I should go a step further and add more emphasis to the traffic lights.
