Default The E-30 back to work

I took a couple of shots with the E-30 last week-end. Since spring is not here yet for another couple of week, the landscape is pretty dry and "yellow".

So, I had to do some editing to make the shots nicer...

Desolation:



Nowhere to go:



Enjoy !

Gilles

I follow in what Hartj said.
The second picture is very good.
For the first is my problem a bit the colors I suppose, did you do anything special in any kind of software program?

I used Photoshop Elements on both pictures but only to cropped them (not much). Following that, I used the TopazLabs Restyle filter on the first picture to give it some (too much?) punch. However, please notice that the black portion on the trees were already there but the rest was ... boring. After that, I increased the details level.

On the second one, I increased the details level a tidy bit and converted in B&W with the TopazLabs BW filters.

I agree. I like the series, especially #2.

Nice work Folob although on my monitor, #1 looks just a tad overdone. My monitor is the least expensive 20" monitor money can buy, a Dell.

I like them, Gilles! It's pretty dismal around here too, until spring arrives.

We got about a week of nice weather ... However, snow is in the forecast for Sunday and Monday. Winter is like baseball here ... It is not over until it is over!
