    Not sure if this works for me...

    by Bart » Mon Jul 13, 2009 11:32 pm

    Took this with the intention of getting the surfers in silhouette which I mostly did. Back in the computer I was playing around and tried to give it an "endless summer" look.

    Success or not? Love, hate etc.
    Personally I'm 70/30

    For anyone interested the original can be found here(2mb jpeg) which is a crop from the full frame (22mp...good Lord I love the 5dII).
    The colour is made by adding a second layer in photoshop, setting it to vivid light and painting with a large orange brush with a bit of dark blue/purple brush at the top. I then played with opacity a little and set it to ~75%

    Also the crop? The raw frame has a bit more water but the beach curls back into frame just below the crop and above the crop is some tree covered hills. I wanted to give the impression of more water than there really was.

    With such a small image display it really is hard to answer your question. Personally I think that it is close, but a little too much red in the colour you have used. :D

    :oops: Well that made it easier to look at:lol: Whilst I like it my comments re the slightly out there colour, still apply for me.

    Well those colours appear fairly close to the original. Just goes to show how much I know :D

    If it's sharp enough, how about trying a vertical crop around the leading board, and making it all water by "just" missing the land above and the beach below?

    Maybe a little over the top.

    I posted a similar thing a while back last year.
