Default July Challenge - Post Process

I love taking photos, but I also love working on them from a processing standpoint. Standard rules apply. Show me your favorite or best recent processing work. It can be subtle or dramatic...

For fun, post the raw, untouched image along with the processing so we can see your handy work!

I haven't done much PP on my Pentax images but this one sure needed it. Most of my PP has been to my P&S images shot during sailboat races at dusk, Amazing how good you can make a P&S image look

Not the best. But, we went out to Humarock, Masschusetts today and ended up wandering all over the place. Most of my photos were taken from the car, through a dirty windshield, as was this one. Usually I'm taking photos of the Zakim Bridge at night. It's unusual for us to be going this direction through Boston during the day. Anyway, looking through my images I almost deleted this one, but decided to see what I could do with it. it's not a great image, but shows what I got out of it.



And, here's the original.

Love the results so far! It's really interesting how you can recover what looks to be a throwaway or take a good photo and make it great. Hope to see more and I'll have to come up with something good for my entry!

Default Dock on the lake

This is kind of a sow's ear of a photo. I was just out taking photos with a lens I just got back from CRIS. Not a great day to take photos.


I usually take my photos in RAW and try to preserve the highlights so that I can use all the DR. This usually makes the photos look dark but as I am PP (because they are in RAW) this is not much of a problem.


The first is basically just like a JPG out of the camera but was on the computer.


The next is PP the heck out of. More then I usually do.


When I do BW I start with making the color look the way I want then turn it into BW So the last is a BW. I am showing the color because 1) it could be were I would stop and 2) it is a big part of the BW process if that is were you want to go.

NOT AN ENTRY

since these are out of period and not Pentax, but since there are so few posts, I thought I would add this one as another example

Hmmm. Was hoping to see some more images from our crew. I know they're out there. Seems everyone is as busy as I've been.

Let's vote. Hinkesh gets my vote. A very nice shot saved by PP.
