In the second view I have used more sharpening and contrast with some desaturation. I just cannot resist pushing the envelope with PS.

Congratulations on BIP, Phillip. Well deserved for this dreamy, artistic statement.

I hope you do not mind that I have also taken the challenge in editing the original.

I have used extreme sharpening and color selection in the first version.

Hi Phillip,
You have a diverse and colorful portfolio and I will visit you again when I have more time. For now I just want to show you my appreciation for posting this shot.
It’s encouraging that even under bad weather condition you still can come out with great images like this one.
Great composition and congratulations for the well deserved BIP.
Regards.

Oh, James, thank you for taking the time to leave a comment!

Yes, I like the use of a thin white border in some images. It does not, necessarily, suit all images, however, I do think, it suits this one! :))

Once again, thanks!

Oh, Phillip, this is a great shot! I know that feeling of being unsure about whether others will like a shot but this is just wonderful. I love the coloring and the graininess of it... and the fog! Beautiful image really. ~ Warmest regards, Rocky

Barrie Cranston   {K:169} 10/14/2006
Great photograph. No modifying from me. I really think you have to discipline yourself with a shot like this as so many adjustments can look as good if a little different. Great stuff.

James Cook James Cook   {K:38068} 10/14/2006
I don't usually use a thin white llne around an image. Possibly because so many of photographs are so dark. I like what the thin white line does to bring out this photograph. I'm less sure of the color of the border. But I'm definitely going to make use of this thin white line. Thanks. Oh, congrats on the well deserved award. A window into another world, my friend.

Oh, Sophie, thank you very much for your nice comments!

Sophie, I look on photography as a journey of discovery! Since joining UF, I have sought to aim higher, push the boundaries, and get ideas from other photographers - particulary the ones who have achieved a number of awards! That may not work for some, however, that is what has helped me to grow! I have found the projects to be a great way to help me grow as a photographer. I still have a mighty long way to go, however, I am enjoying the ride! By the way, I very much regard myself as a rank amateur!

Good luck with your photography! Enjoy the journey!

Cheers

Phil

I wish I could get a Best in Project. This picture, you were unsure of, and got a Best in Project award. Its great, but really, this picture is quite simple. Its nice seeing simple, beautiful images getting awards. The image itself is great. I know how hard it is to photograph in the fog, so you did a really good job. Congrats on the award

For me, looking at this image feels like going on a trip to a world made only of beautiful dreams where all the harsh details in life fade away to make place for a big bearable picture.
Very soothing and perfect for the project.
Such a wonderful softness!!!!
Congratulation on the BIP, Phillip

nI must say that on first glance, I didn't like this. It just seemed like a faded picture. But, I figured it was worth a closer look as it does have a BIP. This is one that definately grew on me. I have been looking at for a bit and enjoying the peaceful feeling that it creates. The frame is so effective as it provides a window to step through and escape from one's everyday activities. Once inside your picture, there is a calm and gentleness. The fogginess represents dreams that need dreaming to bring into clearness. I really like the poeticness (a new word just for you) of this. It is so good that it was featured on the home page. Otherwise, I would have missed enjoying it. Please don't delete it, Phillip. It portrays a different type of picture and that is what I like about UF. There is such a variety and I am learning to appreciate pictures that I never did before. So, for me, your edxperiment was a success.

I must say I prefer Star's edited version below: it's just a little darker so you can see more clearly what is being photographed. I enjoy the striking black frame that Star added to bring out the trunk and [horses?] too. But I see why you took the photo; it's a beautiful scene. Makes me wish I were there.

Oh, you are right, Gayle! It is full of noise. I have tried everything to get rid of it (everything that I know about).

Like you, I don't know how to do layers, as yet. I seem to learn more about Photoshop and Paintshop each time I use them. I just need to make myself learn how to takle these layers!!!!

If I have any success with a B&W version, I'll let you know!!!

Thanks for your support and comments! I appreciate it very much!

very kind of you,Phil,but if it doesn't work out to your satisfaction,don't worry about it cause if it pleases you as is,that is your vision and our opinions are just subjective according to our tastes.....my monitor does pick up varied colored noise in sky and not a clue as how to diminish that unless select and apply gaussian blur...i have paintshop pro8 and haven't learned layers yet,so not sure if some layering with transparency would help or not......

Thanks, again, Gayle, for your comments!

At some point in time, I will try, again, to convert this to B&W. Last time I tried it turned out very grainy. The more I tried to get rid of the grain, using Neat Image and other programs, the more 'blurred' the tree became. I'll give it one more go, especially for you!!!!!

hi,glad you left this one up,Phil...the fog density contrast level is more to my liking...never have been fond of the celadon/pea green hues,but could see this working in B/W very well...very pastoral scenic image and well worth the early morn time to capture this...

Whatever you do Phil, DON'T delete this one! Someone may stumble across it and offer you the best advice ever.

In any event, as I said before, it isn't bad at all. A few people here agree too, and I believe it also has a lot to do with your creative post work. You've turned a very difficult lighting situation into elegant artwork... :)

Now, I'm off to check out some of your other recent goodies...

I haven't seen this one before. I love it. I did play with it but all I did was hit the auto contrast button in P.S. then faded it back to 60%. I don't think it needs anything else done to it. Love the composition and the border, too. Cheers, Ann.

The fog is too intense and the green tone enhanced it and i think it missed the feeling of this location (IMHO) i preferd more sharpness and details!

Hi Philip..even when it is experimental it is a real beauty..because of the foggy outlook it seems at distance, but that also gives a dreaming view..i like it.. you choose the border very well.. nice picture..good experiment..greetings Margriet

Oh, thanks, Howie.

Read my reply to Cathy. You will see that, at the moment, I'm a bit 'anti' this image.

I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. Once again, thanks!

Cheers

Oh, thanks, Cathy!

I wish I felt the same way. At the moment, the more I look at it, the more I dislike it!!! LOL

Don't be surprised to see it deleted! I do that, sometimes, when I really displike a photo.

I'll have another look at it in the morning and see if it appeals more to me then! LOL

Once again, thanks for your comments!

Cheers

Phil

Thanks, Rina.

I had a look at Helen Bach's post. It is a bit out of my depth! I'll have to ask my 14-year-old if she understands - she probably will!! LOL

Once again, thanks for your support and comments!

Cheers

Phil

I have to admit, I don't like this!

Sorry, Ace Star, I do appreciate you taking the time to offer a suggestion. Thank you!

Simply beautiful, I know mornings like this (but have never successfully captured them). Well done. Cathy
PS I can see no need for changes.

Well actually, I did play around with it before commenting earlier. Tried desat, greyscale and finally, toying with channels. I couldn't get it any better. But then, I didn't have the original. Pretty much got as far as Ace did, and as you can see, it's not really a good alternative...

With the original, have a look to see which channel the blotches don't show up in and use that as your basis when using the channel mixer.

Helen Bach gave some great advice about this in the forum a couple of days ago, check it out here: http://www.usefilm.com/Photo_Forum/1/1012658/

Even if you don't have ps, the info could still come in very handy...

Sorry I can't be of more help to you :(

Cheers
Rina.

Oh, thanks, Rina, for your comments.

Rina, this is the original. You can see how little I had to work with. What do you think? If you try to de-saturate it, it looks all blotchy and grainy. Do you have any suggestions?

Cheers

Phil

Hi Phil,

Well, I don't think it's bad. It's just one result of an experiment. However, I would like to see more pop in the branches, trunk and horses.

If the original isn't as light as this, try a subtle blend over it. Just enough to bring out some more detail.

I do like the colour though, and the complimenting frame.

Try posting this to the CC section too. I'm certain you'll get loads more critical feedback on it.

Cheers and thanks so much for your flattering comment on my sp. You're too sweet :)
Rina.
