Leon Russell - This Masquerade ______________________________________________ Thoughts of leaving disappear every time I see your eyes No matter how hard I try To understand the reason that we carry on this way We're lost in this masquerade
Thank you very much for liking it If I were a real genius I would be able to tell you exactly what I have done in post-production but I can't because I don't remember precisely. But I did do a lot of playing around with different tools in different photo programs. I think it started out with backing off on the saturation only to later on increase it along with contrast, sharpening, color temp and tone. You name it...whatever tool the program had I used them all until the soup I was cooking was done...or as I sometimes think...over done.
When I first went to your page and saw this particular image, I didn't think much or even look at your gallery... I just clicked the watch button So maybe now would be as good time as any to give it a fav, because it certainly deserves one (and many more from other people of course) I love the colours and that cloud/smoke adds something special to the mood. It's beautiful, really is
Hi Vanja...thank you very much You didn't think much? That's classic...love it It is a shot that doesn't grab people at first. Looks like just another Manhattan cityscape but for me its exactly that smoke rising that gave it its "hook" which makes it a bit different. Its one of those images that needs to be seen large. Then the affect of the colors work as a whole giving it an overall moody feel. I am so pleased you "understand" it completely
