Thanks for the comments on the photo. Wow, a lot of different takes on the photo I wouldn't have thought of. Interesting to see for sure.

I didn't take it down. Maybe the host site only keeps it live for a few days. I can upload it again tonight.

Awesome thread, and I have no idea how I've missed it for so long

My take on the first photo - sorry, no screenshots for any of my PP because I use a multitude of processes

Zaitz, great dunes shot. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it as soon as I saw it

I liked the colors and chaos of the paint photo, so I went with a slight simplification filter from Topaz and combined a bit of "Sunlight" filter from Nik, then messed with curves and whatnot. My goal was to give it a slightly smeared / painterly look but still keep some of the dark edges (for a bit of grit).

To continue my post spam

I liked this church shot as-posted, but decided to go for some B&W drama and a slight crop of the structure/roof from the bottom-right.

The purple look seems to be the natural one to me, so I tried to enhance this "natural" colouring with a little split toning on top:

And a toned B&W:

Given time, and more PP skillz, i'd try to get more out of the dune shadows (like Zaitz has) and smooth over the sand a bit.

thanks, here's a screen shot of what i could fit in the window:



there is also a lot of vignetting, color brightness adjustments, and one or two grad filters added.

Wonder why nobody has cropped the dunes photo to eliminate the sky + clouds. Maybe even a 16:9 crop, for a cinematic-y look.

To me, the dunes and variable shadow/light is the focus, but the bright sky and inconsistent cloud shapes and tonality really distract and overpower the best part of the image. Kinda like having a delicate cut of nigiri and then submerging it in soy sauce, before heaping on a slice of ginger and a smear of wasabi.

Also, it's in balancing the two characters of the image-- the dunes and then the sky-- where so many processing issues are arising.

Sometimes the best way is to crop!

@justruss. Fr me, I like having the bright sky to give a bit of context to the image. Granted, a just-dunes shot would probably be cool too and even work as an abstract, but the sky gave some context to the reflections on the sand and a bit of a color contrast.

In looking further, i think a tight crop with a sliver of sky (no clouds) gives a great result, and manages to keep the colors while negating much of the balance issue.
