    Quad

    by Bigfoot1966 » Sun Apr 19, 2009 2:24 pm

    Took a few pics of my 6 year old on his Quad.
    Here is a original picture.

    And Here it is after i played with it in Light room.
    A little overdone I think.

    CC Welcome.

    Great shot.

    First is a bit dull and the second is way over done, I'm thinking of a happy medium somewhere.

    Do you mind if I have a go ?

    Well here is my attempt, just 5 minutes in Photoshop. I just tried to bring out your son and his quad from the background. Could probably crop some of the foreground sand as well.
    Others on here could probably do better but I think it's ok. Still think it's a great shot.

    I don't think its over done. ! it does convey the kid's enthusiasm ! I like it! You could see it on his bedroom wall cant you ! (maybe crop 1/4 off the bottom?)

    Yes I like what you have done in photo shop.
    My concern with cropping a 1/4 off the bottom, It would be more of a pan shot, then I may have to crop the left hand side....
    Not too sure...!
    Thank-you

    I think you are right to crop it...

    Do you think I need to take some off the left hand side too ???

    I like the first pano type crop better. Also try to have more sand below than you have sky above your son. When I masked it off on the screen that way it looked like he had more 'air'.

    This thread is a fantastic look at how basic messing with post production can improve a shot out of sight. I love the pano version and would be printing a big metallic of that for the wall!!!!!!!!

    Here's my version where I have used your original subdued landscape and overlaid it with your punched up version of the boy/bike then cropped it a little.

    What do you think?
