The original version was troublesome for me. The blown sky was a major problem (I've had plenty of skies like that, too). But your edited version is a killer shot now. The sky is much, much better, and I like the removal of the other people. They didn't add anything to the composition.


My thoughts. Plus, in the second one there are edges on the ocean/horizon, from cloning out subjects in the bg. I like that image a lot.

Thanks....I was a bit sloppy with the clone tool. If/when I print i will do a much cleaner job.

Hi. Thanks for sharing! A quick comment. To my eyes, it appears as though he has a "light" line (if it as black I would refer to it as a matte line) around him (hoodie, pinkie, etc.) Perhaps an artifact from a mask? I am old and my eyes could be tricking me...

Good call. Again sloppy editing on my part. I did some dodging on him to give him some pop. I must have colored outside the lines a bit. I usually zoom in to 600% when I do that part of post but I had just returned from a long road trip to SoCal and was a bit tired.....excuses,excuses

I thought I saw this in the Canon board but could be wrong. I like the editing version as well. You got some great advice here.
IMO, I would have kept the 2 people on the left of the frame (from left to right)
Thanks for sharing,
Fred

Your right Fred it was posted there only because it was taken with a new 6d....I kind of like having the people in the shot as well

Hey Michael,
I also like the people in the background. They contribute to the feel and story of the picture. I noticed some haloing around the guys pinky. Otherwise a nice edit. Personally I would have added a more dramatic sky in the background. But then again, I like that kind of stuff!

That's actually not a bad idea..I have a file folder full of sky shots I will try a composite this weekend. Halo is probably from dodging I did to the body to pull some detail out. Thanks for the comments

As others said, definitely consider cropping out the tree on the left side, and I'll say I think I prefer the first version you show over the second. The second shows obvious haloing, otherwise meaning an obvious highlight pull process, to the point where it becomes distracting. I love the first shot the way it is, with blown out highlights and all.

It means I'm sloppy at photoshop. It takes 5secs to zoom to 500% and for some reason it's not in my pattern of thinking when in post....

I like the cloning for the tree and sign but think the other people add to it. It's a skate park. There are supposed to be people around. Also I prefer the sky in the original, not for any other reason than the edit shows haloing around him. Blowing highlights in the sky doesn't matter at all if the action is there which it is.
