|One of my first shots with the new Nikon 80-400 VR. Shot at 330mm.
Covert in RSP with settings:
Color Temp 11900, Tint -25, Exp. Comp +.10, Fill Light +5, Shadow +5, Highlight -30, Medium Cont. Curve set at 8 and 226, crop to square, save as TIFF
Cleaned in Noise Ninja set to auto. Save as TIFF.
In PSE6 tweaked Levels, applied Craquelure Texture Filter set at spacing 50, depth 5, brightness 9, resize, sharpen (USM) slightly, add white border, save for web.
Well I knew this would probably bomb. The effect I was going for was kind of woody, like a wooden panel or heavy cnavas. Some seemed to see it by comments like:
"Your filter choices make it look as if they're clay ducks - kind of surreal ..."
"they look like flying wooden ducks because of the canvas effect."
"Painting feeling... Clear and sharp still .."
But most thought the effect trashed an otherwise good photo.
In either case thanks for all the votes and comments. Guess I wont go there again. LOL!
