  • Replied in Noisy HDR
    Thanks Butch. Great suggestions. I thought about shooting a black frame shot, and I probably should have done that. I appreciate the advice, I am really a novice at shooting HDR, and really need ...
  • Replied in Noisy HDR
    Thanks folks for the feedback. It sounds like things are as I suspected, use noise reduction before HDR processing. Once I saw the difference in results, I figured that this was the case. I have ...
  • Created discussions Noisy HDR
    Looking for some advise on processing noisy HDR images. Here are a couple of handheld images processed through Oloneo Photo Engine from 3 bracketed shots (1eV). The evening image was shot at ...
  • I agree with everything Don says here, however be sure to take a quick look at your batch straightened images. Sometimes the Auto function requires a tweak or two. Otherwise, this is your best ...
  • Created discussions Puppet Warp - First Attempt
    Be gentle on your comments, this is my first attempt at Puppet Warp in CS6. I know there are a few artifacts here and there, and the image is a bit noisy, has ghosting and halos, blurry legs (slow ...
  • Replied in Topaz Remask 4
    Thanks! I never got the email either... Downloaded and installed. The interface looks slightly different. I will have to play with it later to see if I notice any difference in performance. Appreci ...
  • No problems here with 3rd party grip and 3rd-party EN-EL18 clone battery (DSTE).

  • Looking great! Nice and peaceful!!! Beautiful compositions.
  • When I shoot at ISO 6400 on my D800, I am not so happy with the results, but like you said, it is harder to see the noise when you downsize the files. I just posted a file over in the Retouching ...
  • Wow! Unbelievable!!! Truly spectacular!
  • Nice. Thanks for the link. That helps a lot.
  • As I mentioned, when I first saw this image, I thought about going for the gritty look, but the more I looked at, I started seeing softness and less grit. I went for the soft look and subtle ...
  • Sheesh! So very cool!!! I am sooooo not worthy! Not only don't I have the PP skills that you guys do, I don't have the creative imagination! Really stellar! I have to say this is my favorite edit ...
  • I started with a gritty look in my mind when I first considered how I would process this image, so we are thinking along the same lines here. Excellent work!
  • Haha! Beautiful Sallyanne! This place is crazy full of such creative people, and it is pretty amazing how each of sees this scene so differently! I love the light colored vignette you added that ...
  • Thank you Patsy! I was wondering if you would play, and I was looking forward to your interpretation! Just beautiful as always!!! Really stunning and creative!!! Thank you so much for contributing!!!
  • Larry: Another very cool effect!!! How did you do this? It is almost like a red, vignette customization somehow. I love it! I love in the second effort that you can see the red reflection from the ...
