Hi

I really liked your earlier sunrise shots - but this one is under your normal standard. Way too overdone (also for a digiart-one).

Hey Klaus, I'll work on a more subtle one. I get carried away with the saturation----- can't seem to help myself. Thanks for viewing!!!!!! ops:



After seeing your's I went back & removed some boring sky area & made some adjustments. Still like the red glow of early moonrise. I've always enjoyed a low horrizontal crop :!: :lol:

That is an excellent shot. I couldn't help adjust it a bit. I hope that's okay, otherwise I'll remove it at once.

Very nice Klaus!! I did it quick & dirty as I was leaving. The increased contrast & color adjustment make all the difference. :!:

Anybody else want to play with my moon pic :?: :?:

Go for it :!: :!:

Thanx hodad66 for opening this game.

I've started my work from the wonderful clenaup of Klaus ( with his permission).

Here's my surrealistic interpretation of the subject :


http://xoomer.virgilio.it/brtsergio/photo/hod3.jpg

1) I've ereased clouds in front of the moon with a Clone Stamp
2) I've tried to reduce the alias and the black parts around the moon that would have most probably come from a copy and paste.
I've used lot of Clone Stamp touches to remove the black parts, and, since the glow around the moon allowed it to me, I've used a blur brush around the circonference to reduce aliasing.
3) The asimmetry of the glow was due to the position of the glow of the sun of the original shot. I tried to restored simmetry ( Copy, paste, layer h-flipping, erares and blur brushes for the final retouches.

I'm sure it can be further refined...there are still some noticeable errors :
- the appearance of a pattern inside the moon due to clone stamp ( in this case its important to change the origin and to reapply the clone stamp in random areas)
- the not perfectly exact circonference of the moon

brtsergio, can't see your pics for some reason? The shot was an actual moon rise but I had the ISO too high & the moon was a white ball. Sooo I cloned in another moon. Hope to se your shots :!:
