The color of inevitability

Volume 10, Issue 90; 11 Sep 2007; last modified 08 Oct 2010

Winter is coming.

Clearly, I haven't quite got the hang of Lightroom.

Those colors really need to be punched up a little.

Kid! Candy Shop!

Punch!

Punch!

Sorry Norm, I couldn't resist.

Heh. I wondered, after posting, if that would be taken as an invitation. I just didn't imagine it'd be taken so by someone with your talent.

The first one is definitely closer to what I had in mind, though perhaps it takes the greens just a bit too far. The second is delightful eye candy.

Thanks!

I agree, the yellowish gradient in the first brought out the detail, but lightened too much. As for the second, well, that was inspired by those rocks. The leaves alone were pretty, but the leaves on those rocks...

I had hoped you wouldn't mind me playing. I know it can irritate some folk, but Fall is a month away for us. I was going through withdrawals.

I love it, but go ahead, punch it up a knotch with your spice weasel

With Lightroom (which I'm still battling to get running inside VMWare on Ubuntu) using the fill light when developing often helps in bringing out the shadows.

And try vibrance instead of saturation for simple editing. Gradients and stuff just aren't for Lightroom, all changes apply to the whole image. Which of course means that sometimes you just have to resort to the Gimp :)
