The “Château de la Chatonnière” his gardens is very pleasant. This is a restful place. The adjustment here was mainly done to reveal details on the sky. I add a vignetting effect to better guide the eyes into the path, while a slight color correction helps to render the scene more like “the way I […]
This is a two minutes exposure with a simple ajustements work: Slight underexposure and saturation, removal of some ground dusts, and also a fence along the right wall.
A little wink to people who are using my Before|After adjustment feature on my blog. That's something quite different! ^^
For people who'll try the Before|After comparison feature above, you'll notice I over-exposed my original shot in a purpose probably even more important than normally. This way, I've been able to catch details on the head and the neck. If not, their would have been completely blacks. In post adjustment, I under-exposed the whole picture […]
I took this photo using the same technic as , but five minutes before. I post-adjusted the picture to logically reveal highlights details — like in the sky — and enhanced the color complementarity, less visible on the original because of the voluntary over-exposure.
I like the general dynamism given by the 24mm focal length in this case.
No obstacle under Patoune, just the top of a sightly curved track. With the speed, she offers us a staging like in WRC or some of the best cars jumps in San Francisco.
As you can notice if you do the comparison (see on my blog), the non-adjusted version is clearly over-exposed. In fact, — as I explain it on quite many of my pictures — it's a photography technic where you help your camera to grab as much details as possible, specially on shadows, because camera sensor are way […]
A 3 minutes long shot, taken few instants before the “Kölner Lichter Musical Fireworks”. A lots of illuminated boats comes slowly along the Rhine, where thousands of people are waiting for the show. On the non-processed picture, the sky as entirely dull and brown, so I adjusted it the way you can see above to […]
This picture is probably my favorite from all my Bourget Airshow 2011 shots. With such a size and some low level pass, it just takes the light in an amazing way. This photo haven't been cropped and I've chosen deliberately to shot heavily zoomed (400mm — equiv. 640mm on the 7D). In fact, things was […]
This is another view of the rock arch (). I used the same shooting technic as before: I intentionally overexpose my original shot. In fact, it's a photography technic where you help your camera to grab as much details as possible, because camera sensor are way mor efficient on highlight. It's also called to “expose […]
This is the mouth of the Courant on the Contis beach. This place is extremely slippery because of the moss. I ardently advise you to leave back any claim about the simple action of “walking”, specially when you move in those rocks with tripod and camera in your two hands. A nice technic if you […]
This ship beached in 1976 on the Lespecier beach in Landes. I tried to go there on morning to get some better lights (earlier would have been nice, but well, that's it). By continue reading, you'll find 19 pictures and an extract from the true story that happened there.Comparison feature is for sure active on […]
1:1 Ratio 2:1 Ratio This is an hairy squirrel you can only see on Himalayan Irish beaches. It's easily tamable, you can even ride it when it's adult (ok, here it's a baby). It used to be mixed up with a spider, however, who already ride a spider? Another earmark for adjacent identification which don't […]
