Default Martins Magic

Tried out Martins program on one of my pics to see what the outcome would be. The first is the original and the second is with the use of the program. Its a bit noisey, but I think that can be worked out. Good work Martin, Thanks.

Thanks. It is quite noisy but if you just reduce the strength to 'Less' it give much better results on the sky without affecting the plane too much.

Another option with this image because the sky and plane are so distinct is a simple curves adjustment to lighten the plane and darken the sky.

[Edit] I had another go at this and it looks like a lot of the noise comes from the jpeg compression of the original (you can see the 8x8 pixel blocks if you look carefully). If you have a better quality original, try again with the detail and strength set to highest and the contrast set to lowest. It will give you something like this which would be a pretty nice shot without the noise :

This is about the best I could come up with. I'll have to play with the program some more. This pic may of been cropped too much to rework it. At any rate, this weekend I'll be using my new glass so I wont have to do any cropping.

I prefer the painting look to the actual photo. The lo res pixelation is the only problem.

My camera is set to jpeg Fine. Its as high as she goes, I believe that its the fact that these pics have been cropped to much. I'll keep tryin.

Here's the above pic cropped after Martins Program. Seems to be better. Interesting at least for a beginner.
