Re: Luminosity Mask Drive Thru

gibletsWithShaman,

I am pleased that you have continued the process of developing luminosity masks.

My attempts were only possible by "stealing" ideas from others and the very useful help, advice and criticism I received, particularly from Krikor.

david.

Re: My photo album

IMG_7708_1.JPG IMG_8104: Very slight changes using Luminosity Mask plugin. IMG_8104_1.JPG IMG_8059: Small increase in contrast of the sea, l...

Re: My photo album

A try at two more of these photographs. IMG_7562: I made a selection of the sea, using masks from my luminosity mask plugin to make the selection. I increased the contrast of the water. I used the saturation mask plugin to emphasize the colours in the tree trunks, trees and sky. A very small amount ...

Re: My photo album

Issabella, Thank you for the large photographs. As I am rather busy, I decided to concentrate on one photograph for the moment. I will get to the others later! This picture I decided to try to create a limited depth of field effect to focus attention on the cross. A second version - the same, but cr...

Re: My photo album

IMG_8176: Another try at this photograph. I am not yet happy with the result. I applied a contrast mask to the original before I used the two plugins. The top, left is still overexposed but I reduced the yellow cast in the hope that it reduces its impact. Better or worse? I am not certain. IMG_8176_...

Re: My photo album

IMG_7864: Used Luminosity & Saturation masks to try to increase the clarity. The blue of the sea is perhaps too intense. Sharpened with Wavelet decompose. IMG_7864_1.JPG IMG_7926: I used the Saturation masks to increase the saturation of the window, its surrounding stone and the ironwork, Reduced th...

Re: My photo album

Now the latest photographs - they are beautiful, especially the sunsets. IMG_7643: I used a mask to be able to give the sea more contrast and then inverted the mask to adjust the sky. All done with Colours/Curves. IMG_7643_1.JPG IMG_7653: Similar process. Lightened the trees, more contrast on the se...

Re: My photo album

I am still trying to find the best way of using my Luminosity & Saturation Mask plugins. IMG_7565: Colours increased, I think it is probably overdone! IMG_7565_1.JPG IMG_7724: Used both plugins to bring out detail and colours in the tree branches, but the found it necessary to use the Channel Mixer ...

Re: My photo album

I am still playing with my two new "toys"! IMG_7545: I decided to give this picture a more grey, "stormy" appearance! IMG_7545_1.jpg IMG_7549: This one the opposite - brighter and more colour. IMG_7549_1.JPG IMG_7589: The main change here was to make the water a lighter blue. IMG_7589_1.JPG IMG_7605...
