Twiddle Time Again 4/10

 

 

Lonesome Tree Re-visited.

 

I first posted this image here on the 10th.December, 2008 and you can read there all the information about where it was taken. 

 

This time I have processed the image through HDR Darkroom, a quite good free piece of software.  Once again, as with Monday's image it has been done from a single image, and then given a further slight adjustment in Topaz.

 

It is worth comparing the difference between the two.

 

On Tuesday evening, at my Club's Annual General Meeting, I finally stood down after 21 years on the Committee.  In that time I was Programme Secretary, Treasurer and finally Secretary, from now on I can go to meetings and not have to worry about business etc.but just get on with enjoying the meetings and the company of my fellow members, who really are a great crowd.

smile Great picture and I compared the two of them, amazing.
Love the sky and the texture of the rocks.
Thank you for your e-mail and the picture, I will respond in the weekendsmile
Have a great day.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Astrid.

This is a real improvement Brian: it just shows the importance of twiddling. I learnt all I know from my namesake in Droitwich
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. Would this namesake be the one that we all know and (what's the word I'm looking for?)

You have given enough I should think Brian. Enjoy the change.
Brian Walbey: I will Chad.

Certainly brought out the details in the rock Brian, I'm sure that after 21 years service you are in need of a rest. Makes my 5 years look decidedly short.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les. The problem always is of course that successors never do it the same way as ones self, they might even do it better of course.

great intens colours
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
A beautiful photograph with lovely colours and very wel processed.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Laurette.
Certainly an improvement on the first Brian and I think most people would favour it. Good twiddling
Brian Walbey: yes I think it is as well Janet, thanks.
magnificent view, love the blue backdrop
Brian Walbey: yes the twiddling has really brought out the blue.

Works for me, Brian...especially the liquid rock
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.

I like the composition here, Brian, and the detail. Your use of the light has really brought out the strata in the rocks. The tree is the icing on the cake.

I've been involved on a committee now for around the same length of time; I'm a membership secretary with around 1300 members worldwide; it does keep one (too) busy sometimes!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. I'm one of those people who always end up on a Committee, hopefully this will be the last.
Very dramatic Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.

Hdr works well
Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage.
It certainly has lifted the sky but the colour on the rocks looks a bit odd.

21 years is a long time Brian i think you have earned your rest!
Brian Walbey: I think the rocks have gone a bit too far Bill although the sky looks better.
Twiddling makes a very interesting change - kind of an unreality.
Brian Walbey: Yes it does Mary, thanks.
These rocks look very steep Brian, did you climb up high to get this shot?
Brian Walbey: NO I'm actually standing on the beach Stanley but bending down which gives a greater feeling of height.
Nice image Brian, the treatment makes the rocks look great.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John.
The comparison is very interesting, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.

Brian Walbey: Well it could work out that way Mike, with luck.

I like the composition but find the HDR too highly saturated (a bit rich coming from someone who's been posting these weirdly coloured Hipstamatic images, I know, but I'm sorry, I'm not very keen on the HDR aesthetic!)
Brian Walbey: I'm not a great HDR fan myself Ingrid, I just thought I'd mess a few pictures about a bit for the fun of it. Friday's is outrageous compared with my usual stuff.
More vibrant then the original Brian. Like it
Brian Walbey: Yes it makes the original look a bit washed out.
Much more texture in the rock, here, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed there is Graeme.
