That's such a great readup - thanks for the huge effort invested in providing us a glimpse on how you took the shot as well as the post processing afterwards! ... Thank you!
As expected - Apple is the very antithesis of anything to do with professional grade software these days. Their sole focus is mass market consumers. Glad I moved away from Aperture 2-3 years ago as I had anticipated this day to come soon.
anthony mazzeri: The Photoshop Elements splash screen credits suprised me by showing it is outsourced almost entirely to India. I assume that explains why it is quite different and much cheaper than Photoshop (and Bridge) proper.
haha ... didn't know you were such a pleaser :) - but more importantly - hope you could wriggle out of being business 101 challenged ... now THAT - would really make me happy :)
you don't have any idea of what outsourcing means ... it's hard to talk with someone as ignorant as you are on business ... outsourcing is when things are moved out of a company to a completely different third party .... not when adobe opens another design center (in this case india) and offshores the work (note: outsource v/s offshore) ... as far as apple for instance - when it takes its hardware production/ assembly out of the US - it's actually given it to a 3rd party which is not apple ... hence that's OUTSOURCING ...
Poweruser: Everyone... DO NOT BUY the subscription. Keep using your stand alone version. This is the only way we can teach Adobe how WE - the users - WANT our software.
Asking for a monthly fee for the rest of your photographic life is a straight pain in the rear!
I think 20 likes (for poweruser) v/s 1 to blurredvision says it all dn't it? :)
It's not "outsourced" ... get your fundamentals right ... adobe has a big design and development center in India (note: NOT OUTSOURCED) where sizeable chunks of most of its leading products are designed (including aftereffects, premierepro and PS)! Ignorance thy name is anthony
Absolutely breathtakingly beautiful ... wonderful wonderful composition and such nice interplay of the colours!! .. bravo!
I'm going to love voting on this challenge - can already see some pretty awesome pictures!!
For a single exposure - it's quite fabulously done - I had taken a 3 exposures further towards the altar of the same cathedral - an absolutely fabulous place to visit if one's in Montreal that's for sure! ... Thanks for sharing and putting this up on the challenge. I'm pondering on which shot of Montreal to put up ... since you've put up this shot, I think I'll put up something else - don't want repeats :)
would black and white work for a challenge entry?
MasterCBC: Hi, I'm really sorry that my challenge has caused much discomfort for some, it all started as a kind of game in which you believed you were supposed spy. For my part believe me no more of these kinds of challenges. if I could remove the title "I Spy" I would, but once started is impossible. We must still respect the participants of this challenge who have shown some very good pictures. And I must ckeck why I do not get notifications when people comment in this board. My apologies.
I think that there's too big a deal being made of this challenge ... the subjects seem to be in public places showing "public display of affection" ... and in many cases have been shot photojournalistically ... on the one hand photographers are crying out loud about having rights to being able to shoot what's occuring in the public space, on the other hand you have a hand full of photographers raising a hue and cry about these pictures which are done in public - i find it to be slightly hypocritical to be honest.I think it's an interesting challenge and commend the challenge host for coming up with this theme.
That is absolutely beautiful! ... Despite it not having any details of the crow whatsoever, the light and contrast are just perfect ... very nice!
