Traditional Being ReWorked

Last night I stayed up late to work on an image to show today.  I knew that I wasn’t going to have much time to do it today as I was off to the city this morning with Klara.  We went on a tour of the Melbourne Town Hall and then off to the Aquarium.  I really wanted to do the tour and the bribe to get Klara to go was the Aquarium.  I am hoping that I might be allowed to get back into the Town Hall to take some shots.  So I found an image I could use that I could rework for todays post.

Wine with ApricotsThis image was first shown to you in March in a post called Processes and Traditions.  This was when I wasn’t doing so great with the HDR processing and was still finding my way around the software.  I have learned a thing or two since then.

As I said, last night I worked on an image.  I was worried that when I looked at it today that it would look bad.  It doesn’t, but then I realised there was another major problem with it.

Wine and Grapes - Reworked

Can you tell the difference?  I did the wrong photo.  Can you believe it?

I could go and redo it, but to be honest, right now I am too tired.  I am hoping you can tell what I have done differently to the first one.  Look beyond the fact that the image is different.

I tried to bring out the textures a lot more.  I have also done a lot more blurring than what I was doing in the past.  I made the background much darker.  I did lose the wine bottle, but I don’t think that matters.  I love how the crystal glass comes out.

I was allowed to take some photos today of the inside of the Town Hall, but they aren’t great, you really need a tripod to take the photos.  I will show you some from there and the Aquarium in the next few days.
