Don't take my criticism the wrong way but i'm curious as to why you chose to edit the photo's this way. IMO this shot could have been nice with some bright green and rich blue sky, but it's been dulled out completely and it looks as if there is a spotlight on a ball of hay. I'm guessing it's some sort of HDR. I'm not trying to be mean so please don't take it personal, i'm just boggled as to why you chose to darken all the parts of the image that would make it pop.

Better? I tend to get it right, and then process it a bit more lol, It could be that it's the middle of the night.

I love comments/criticism

I agree with what Bubba is saying.

I would like to see what the original image looks like. From the looks of it, I would probably like the original better.

I understand you wanting to do some compositing, similar to the ones KoL does, and I understand that you have to start somewhere.

Don't stop, this one is better than the others. I feel like the lighting needs to be worked on. Overall, it looks a little Drab/Muddy. The treeline/skyline needs some work also. I don't want to sound condescending, I am by no means an expert photoshop'ist, but you'll get there with practice.

Just wondering... are you working with photos you have taken, or with some stock images from somewhere...?

These are all my photos, I took these today. I never use stock, I like the whole image to be "my" work. I'm trying to get practice on photoshop, there's so much to learn.

So you don't like the "Light" version either? Would you increase contrast and get blown out clouds? I'm wondering how to make it less muddy. Would taking off the multiply gaussian blur overlay help make it less "muddy"? (I still can't remember the name for that effect.)

I'll spend some more time on the treeline right now.

Sorry, we must have been posting around the same time. I was counting on my post being right under Bubbabyte's post :) Unfortunate coincidence.

I do prefer the 'Lighter' version. Much much better. I find the sky to be a little too purple tho.

Great, I'll un-purple-ize it a bit, and finish the trees. I'm sure there has to be a better way than layer mask and brush, but I haven't found it yet.

I tend to take my photos about one step to far though. I was about to save, and then I randomly added that dark layer on top :rolleyes:.

Before saving I should press ctrl+alt+z a few times. :laugh:

I do love -Kol's images though, I have a bunch printed in my room.

I feel like HDR is a phase a lot of people go through where they HDR everything. I know I sure did. It's really cool when you're first learning it. Then it's a tool in your bag of tricks you can use later on.

My current phase is off camera lights. Once I get a pretty good grasp on it I'll probably move onto something else.

@Boifido: If you added that dark layer on top, try setting it to 'Overlay' and bring it down to 15% or something like that. Should make the sky and the colors pop more then just a black layer set to 15% alone.

@crazzy88ss: Like anything, good HDR has it's place. The over-processed looking HDR that a lot of people just pump though photomatix (or the like) I could do probably do without. Though, what Boifido is doing is more compositing than it is HRD i think.

close enough. It's still taking multiple exposures and putting into one.

*shrug*

Thanks for the tip. I still have to learn what all the different blending options in that dropdown box do. I'll seek out a tutorial tomorrow. There are many options!

Yea, It's not really hdr at all, mostly just since the hay bale one is made up of 25 images, I can set the correct shutter speed for each part of the bale/sky/grass/trees.

In fact, the set of 10 images(sky), and the set of 15(ground) images were taken less than 100 meters from each other. The sky to the left was much better. I figure starting with 2 main images is a good way to easy into composites that can contain 10's of seperate images.

The reason I make a "panorama" of everything is that our point and shoot camera has horrible noise close up. This way, the 15 images of the grass are far enough away that it looks okay from a pixel noise point of view.

I do have to admit, for about a week, about a half year-ish ago, I did tonnes of overprocessed HDR's. I didn't upload or show them to anyone, but I definitely caught the HDR fever :D

Thanks for the comments guys but compared to you my photos are crap hehe. Love the photos in this thread. I need to keep learning.
