I was on my way back to the catholic cathedral to fulfill a promise about certain shots (a post yet to be posted), when I saw the light on the old tram shelter.




Of course there are not many of these old Melbourne metropolitan Tramways Board shelters around now. The trams still run but they are now run by a multinational conglomorate who has much sleeker looking tram stops. Still Through my nostalgia glasses this is what I saw.




Apparently this is called the Orton technique (plenty of info if you Google) and I ended up downloading a Photoshop action that does it all for me, that's what I call PP.

Sharp focus and bright colors, very nice. I have seen the Orton technique used a number of times and I prefer the more subtle use of it as you have done. I agree, one click PP is what I like best.:-)

Give me nostalgia any time, over all the new cold sleek stuff of today.

Would love to see a B&W or Sepia rendition of this same shot with the modern cars in the background photo-shopped out.

Both nice shots. I like the effect on the second shot.....soft but not over the top. Well done Rafael, nicely done

Ted purely luck that it came out relatively soft, the action did it all, though I think I now know how to adjust a bit.

Annie, I had not heard of it till I saw an example in the last couple of weeks on a portrait and quite liked it. This shot seemed to ask for it.

Hiroshi, I will give it a try, but I am not sure I am up to the PP skills to clone out stuff without it looking clumsy. If I have some success will repost.


Thanks Mark, yeah normally I do not do much as my PP skills do not go too far.
