    :bowrofl:

    Seriously the halo is crap. So many photos are posted on here with excessive shadow/highlight and the posters dont even notice the halo.

    From memory its just the highlight adjustment you have to be careful of.

    Also you've boosted the shadows a lot, be careful of noise.

    I dont really care if they get on my back.

    The "exaggerated post processing" I used was exactly that. My photography, as well as everyone else is extremely subjective. Sure, there are common practices and admirations for what the "majority" think is right when it comes to photographic process/post process, and I understand it. However, I deviated from this process on my own accord and I like my extreme post processing. If other's dont like it :dunno: what to tell you....

    I've actually seen some work in magazines that strive for the halo around figures...a recent print or CMYK photo annual in fact. :dunno:

    A sharp edge in portraits with good edge lighting, sure. Never seen a professional shot done like the one above. Would love to see examples.
     

  25. I'm not really trying to stand up for you or anything I just didn't like the direction this thread was headed.
