Hey Guys,

I posted this shot in one of the other forums a few days ago. I really like it, but it is missing a bit of 'pop.' I would appreciate it to see what everyone can do with it.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for contributing the file. You went much more contrasty than I did, making the TV look like it is popping out on the sands. It definitely provides a different effect.

I think in my next stab at this, I am going to try playing with the colors more to make them seem intentionally incorrect. Hopefully later this week. This weekend, I have been trying to knock off photos for the Death Valley article, but I will definitely take another stab later in the week.

James

Hey Sally and Roman,

LOL, I kind of forgot about this a while ago. Thanks for taking part. Roman - I particularly like your version. The TV looks like it is going to pop out at me. Can you tell me what you did to process the image?

I did a blend to seperate the curves use on the sky vs. the curves used on the foreground. Once flattened, I edited it in all 10 color spaces (RGB,CMYK, and of course LAB) using curves and Color balance adjustment layers, then used the exposure adjustment in CS3 to tighten up the brightness and black point....then sharpened it a touch.

LOL, Tony, I hope that you are not comparing the photo to the Titanic.

Roman, when you say that you are editing in all 3 color spaces...for the little old lady down the street. Can you tell me how are you doing this?

Sure...in photoshop...you have the Image/mode menu (where you change bits per chanel and color spaces...

Adjust curves within each seperate colors (layers/new adjustment layers/curves) Then just adjust each color layer using the drop down box in each curves layer control With so many adjustments available...a little goes a long way. In cmyk....adjust the left hand side across the bottom to tighten up the color channel THEN...grap the curve in the middle and lift it a bit above the center line to remove the cast of color created by tightening it up....playing with the curve and giving it fine tune will go a long way here...small adjusments can really make the diffreence.

I adjust a color balance layer as well in CMYK and LAB as each control can be minutly tuned to keep color dead on....you will have a radio button on the bottom of this layer control....Shadow...Mid...Highlight.....adjust for each range.

Once back into RGB, create an "exposure" adjustment layer to tighten up the brightness and black point.

Sharpen to taste.
