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.
This 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.
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.
I have been given quite a few more awards and I really need to acknowledge some people.
