  • US images

    I must admit that I haven't processed many of my images taken in California, Nevada and Arizona when we were there in May. However, my club needed some images for a big external competition so I dug out the attached. It is the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA. E3 and 7-14 ZD. Cropped and processed in Silver Efex Pro. Plus a bit of dodging and burning in CS5.

    Dave, if they are all like this let's have some more - far too good to leave buried on a hard drive!

      Thats a corker. I was going to say it's like something out of a fantasy comic, but I guess that's what it is!

        Nice image but IMO needs more contrast.

        Its a strange building to photograph and its in a strange area.

              A great image and, surprise, surprise, not a scateboarder in sight.

                Thanks for your positive comments including Alf's. I tried earlier to boost the contrast but it just blew the highlights which I had dodged to retain detail in the original edit. Anyway, it is one of my club's four submissions for an upcoming WPF endorsed competition. Funnily enough one of the other images was taken with an OMD EM5. We can't often say that 50% of our entries were taken on an Oly!
                The concert hall is an amazing place. I took loads in the few minutes that the bus was able to stop. All taken at the wrong time of day when the sun was high in the sky and flare was a real problem with the 7-14. Cloning did the trick! It doesn't look half as good in colour - I just love Silver Efex Pro!
                Yes I have loads of images from our trip, which I will have to get around to processing some time.

                  Just picked up on this post.

                  Really like this. Great graphical qualities and beautiful smooth tones throughout the range as defined in Mr Adams system.

                    Re: US images

                    Thanks Hec. Yes, I like the smoothness and evenness of the tones. What I didn't want is too much conttast due to the sun burning out the highly reflective bits of the building.
