While I had everything set up yesterday, I tried some other set ups.  I didn’t want to put them all up yesterday,  today I thought I would show you one without so much fruit.  I am going to do the same as I did yesterday, start with the original image and then show the HDR image, followed by two other images where I have tried other things.

I have done some editing with this one.  Had to do a bit of work to the tablecloth because it was too bright.  I am also not happy with how all the glass just blends in and doesn’t stand out.

This is the HDR version.  I am a lot more pleased with this.  I think the glass pops out more.  The cloth didn’t need any  work and I didn’t even notice it too much.  I like how this one works so much better than the original.

I have been doing a lot of reading on how to grunge up images, wondering if that is what I need to do to get the type of image that I’m looking for.  Of course, it doesn’t help that I don’t really know what I’m looking for.  I don’t know if I would continue doing this, but I have learned some new things, and that is never bad.  Often I have to try things, go away, think about them, and then decide how I would use them.

That is what I have done for this image.  I wondered if I followed most of the steps, well just a couple actually and then did something on its own would it work.  I blurred the image, and then added some sharper bits, much like what you would do with a painting.

When you are painting, you don’t give everything the same amount of sharpness that you often get with a photo.  You decide what is going to be your point of focus and then work out from there. I want to do that more.

I don’t know know if you are able to see any differences between the four images.  I hope you can, maybe try clicking on them for a larger image.

The experimentation continues.
