The camera never lies… Or does it !?!?…

Slug’d

So this one is a little technique that I’ve developed myself, which I won’t divulge all the secret formula to, but it’s a bit of HDR / Lucis / Orton / Fractalius and maybe a few other things to boot. Essentially it still gives an HDR feel, but also blends in a smidge of extra contrast and pulls out a bit of additional texture.

      Thanks Tony.. Sometimes it works well and sometimes not so.. Depends on the image.. Stonework is an area where it works best.

    • LOL.. You’re right, I have NO idea… I have to admit it’s a process that I’ve really tamed down since posting these, but it still comes in very useful for adding a smidge of contrast and boosting a bland(ish) grey sky…
