Welcome to John Moser's Image Workshop / Playground

Pennsylvania Avenue Panoramas

These were shot on July 31st from the observation deck of the Newseum.

Improvement (?) is the sincerest form of flattery, I guess, and my friend O3 sent an edited version of my Penn Ave pano to me tonight:

    I don’t know if it’s improvement it just a thing I found in photoshop that makes the clouds pop. You high light just the clouds with the magic wand then cick the auto levels, if you just have a pictures of just clouds and hit auto level you will see how it works. Anything else highlighted and it won’t work right.

    You may want to make extra layers to blend into landscape, you know all that.

    I’m still peaved about the pop the liquid screens give my photos. I’ve been using a tube monitor to correct my images all these years and when I see some of my stuff on other flat screens, what I had perfect is over exposed.

    I’m kind of into making the images look kind of realistic, but just tweaked to the point that you might not notice it’s been tweaked. I guess that might be called something in the ballpark of hyper realism. The cloud selection thing is good, but you end up with these sort of obviously heavily worked transitions that are distracting (to me). Selecting is key… and I’m learning more and more about it as I have time. There’s a lot to it. I can usually find out a lot just by searching youtube for tutorial videos. Selecting hair is one of the most trying: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ND1WIoaUHos

    I don’t use it all the time but it does give that hand colored look for some images.
