Shot this for a friend of mine yesterday.
ehhhhhh the editing..
Wat? I only PS'd out a power line?
And not that well either.
shes got the soft edge of a brush all around her too.. just looks not natural IMO
No she doesn't. All I did was tweak exposure a tad in lightroom, then clone out a power line.
Oh weird. alright then, cool shot anyway
I improved it a bit
I was gonna say crop out that thing in the bottom left, but then scrolled down and saw someone did it for you.
Looks washed out and flat. Add some blacks. Also looks like you missed focus by about a foot.
I like the second edit...it needed that punch. The only thing I'd say about it is that the foot was cropped slightly. Did you use a flash on this?
I added a little fill light recovery in lightroom. Maybe too much? I think it looks quite nice on my monitor. The horse is in focus. I can count the whiskers on it's chin. The rider is a tad soft.
The second edit was only a crop. I didn't do anything else. Yes, I used a flash. High speed sync ftw! 1/6400 sec @f/4. ISO 800
No way, broski... tones are different, second edit is nicer
That is the one foot I was referring to. And yeah, the fill is a bit much. It's one thing to was nice even lighting, but life does not have even lighting I mean, obviously the sun is directly overhead so I would expect some shadows on her face to add three dimensionality.
maybe I saved the file differently but all I did was crop the image.
No sir. I dont like it. I dont like the framing and i dont like how the trees are glowing compared to the dark blue sky.
what he said. shadow+highlight (or recovery in lightroom) give you a very dull grey or blue grey sky.
Hmmm....How does this unretouched shot look?
the tighter crop improved it quite a bit over the first picture
bringing out some highlight detail on the horse's eyes and ears could do a lot to make the image more appealing, specially to those familiar with the equestrian community
you shouldnt need to underexpose that much
I like the tight crop best.
Very underexposed is how it looks. L2meter
I made a print of my crop image and it looks great. You guys need to calibrate your monitors.
the deeper the thread goes... the more you admit to more editing?
I only edited the original like described then cropped it.
