The Mallee gave me so many fantastic images, and there are still more to go, but I am starting to run out. It is a shame, though I suppose it means I will just have to go back sometime. I spent about 4 hours on this, and I think I went too far. I remember having a tutor at Uni that used to say that sometimes you have to do that. I like aspects of it, but I think it is probably too much.
This is the other room in that house from the post called Home. I did the main room in it last week, I think, and this room is from that room. It had a lot more light in it, and was much more a junk room. It took me ages to work out what that was hanging over the old stove, can you work it out?
There is the original. It is the first image of the bracketed shots that I did the HDR for this image. I had to do a lot of fixing, I don’t know what I was thinking when I shot the photo at this angle, very strange. I didn’t like it, so I straightened it and made it more natural.
I have done lots of layers, I did an extra blur layer, and I don’t know if it was a good idea. I also added a detail layer and then used the mask to get rid of quite a bit, so that only the rubbish on the ground is detailed. It doesn’t look like a photo anymore, and I don’t know if that is good or bad. I am undecided about this one. I think I did go too far with the processing this time, maybe I need to sleep on it and look at it again tomorrow.
I have been asked by a few people about doing some tutorial type posts, however, I don’t know how many of you are really interested in that. I probably won’t show exactly what I do, but I am happy to do some simple things, and maybe a few of the steps that I do. It isn’t that I don’t want to show you how I do what I do, but more because I do things differently each time. So hands please, put your hand up if you would like me to do some lessons, though I would like to know what you would like to learn.
So here is a poll so you can tell me what you want.
So for those of you who can’t figure out what that is in the middle, it is an old bed, one of those old fashion ones, I remember those, vaguely.
