p.1 #1 · Toll road( another photo added)


Sort of reminds me of Blazing Saddles with the toll in the middle of the badlands. Here the toll taker doles out his own brand of justice for those who don't pay the freight. We obviously looked like scofflaws as he decided to try to enter the back of our vehicle about 2 minutes later. This was the closest I ever came to an needing a change of underwear on safari! Fortunately our guide was looking thru the side view mirror and saw this guy crouch down and about to leap up....don't you just hate it when the animals don't read the text book!
It was very dark...I think shot at iso 2500...next shots all needed flash!

I would have taken the the fork to the right

I like theme, he sure looks like he means business. (psst, low light, high ISO, move the WB slider to the right of magenta a touch, it will warm up the shot some )

I like the modification Eric!
Sometimes an image like this can benefit from a touch of warming filter in CS. Make sure Preserve Luminosity is checked

Thanks Tom...as you see Tim also suggested adding warmth by moving the wb slider to the right...so there is more than one way to warm a cat I guess! I guess now I have to start another file called "Tidbit nits from Tom"....awesome stuff and this is why I like the nits...how else can one get better!

Nice Grab Eric and I like the fact that you not only accept nits but have friends with wit, so by extrapolation Tim and Tom are Nit Wits.... haha
Love the edits by the way!!

So, while I liked the warmer look I thought the reprocess changed the whole feel of a very late afternoon. A re-reprocess was done to warm but not brighten the image and hopefully keep the entering night time feel.

I have expressed that this type of exercise really can help us all be better photographers/processors and more aware of the images we are producing. So I invite all nit-ers to add their 2 cents in a CONSTRUCTIVE way to any and all of my posts. As I said in a PM to one of our members, I have enough Little League trophies for participation!

Eric- I also like the image, and I also prefer the re-do.
As a member of the Peanut Gallery, I hesitate to add my re-do of the re-do.
But you know I'm going to. Apologies if it stinks.
I tweaked the auto color, the contrast, then isolated Leo and sharpened him a tad.

Thanks Charlie and all peanuts accepted. I have tried auto color and the like and sometimes it works and other times not. As far as contrast/brightness it changes the flavor of the image and makes it look more like daytime which it decidedly was not. Not to say your processing doesn't make it look fine as an isolated image but it loses that feel of evening (which I am trying to convey)...IMHO.
Thanks for chiming in...the more the better!

Okay, Eric, I finally get it . And I agree with you about the feeling of darkness.
Here's yours and a tweak of mine to try for a better "balance," i.e. a bit of brightness without losing the feel of the coming darkness. Oh, I downsized them a bit.
Now it's time for my nap .
Charlie

Okay- I'm awake now, and will increase the sizes of my middling meddling efforts. My bad
