  • Replied in link to raw
    I really like the first Affinity however the blue halo is still present as it is in the original. I have never used Affinity - is it possible to selectively apply the setting you used only to the ...
  • Replied in link to raw
    Here's the raw ............. cloudup.com/cgaVK0eTaeK I went back to my edits, increased haze and decreased structure
  • Yes I'll gladly provide raw - look for it later today or early tomorrow MST 16:30  now   utc-7
  • Thanks Dale, The blue haze you mentioned was unintentionally enhanced from the original more than likely using luminosity masking. ON1 steps: (1) Develop module: tweaked exposure, contrast, midtones, ...
  • Created discussion thread ON1 luminosity masking
    The new adjustments available for masking are VERY powerful. ON1 was used exclusively for processing, mainly luminosity masks for DC and Color. before after
  • Very Nice!  Would you mind briefly describing your technique?
  • Created discussion thread Underwater capture
    A friend asked me to help him with an underwater film shot. I was provided tiff as original. ON1 2018 used for all processing. I tried clone tool on the 'tuna' to tone down the blown out areas - ...

  • Absolutely - raw files remain in tact.... However changes made are usually stored in a file directly associated with the original - that way the changes are visible the next time the file is ...
  • As expressed by many - the learning curve of a camera can be daunting ... especially when one is in a foreign country with the pressure of capturing memorable moments with a snapshot. IMHO you'll ...
  • I often don't take my "real" camera with me on outings that I KNOW can be easily revisited - I use my iPhone to scout the area so I have a good idea of where &  when to return plus have the best ...
  • hmmmm...... this person had a mind set to have a camera in possesion and "at the ready" Yes - ABSOLUTELY - emotions caught without posing can be compelling!
  • Not positive, but taking off the lens cap probably ranks along dropping ;-)
