  • No disrespect meant, but...

    ... isn't this pic manipulated?

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewphoto.p...7588221&nseq=5

    I must say, this photo is perfect, outstanding, and all my appreciation to the photographer.

    But isn't it a little overprocessed in a way that it is more of an artistic picture than a 'real' picture? No plane looks like this in the real world.

    Again, no disrespect meant!

    Cheers,

    Hinkelbein

    Short answer: Yes, but more over processed, not manipulated. (it has been noticed within the crew and has been discussed)

      Thanks, Seahawk.

      Can you point out why this picture was eventually admitted to the database?
      Or: where lies the border between overprocessing and manipulating?

        And, my second question: since I am rather impressed by the picture, what methods/filters did the photographer possibly apply? I have some pics of my own with which I would like to do the same.

          It looks like HDR, but not with two (or more) different shots, but the same shot developed twice (or thrice). If so, there are tutorials on the net how to do this...

            I'm thinking a combination between careful use of shadows/highlights and clarity. It was accepted because the screeners thought that the overall motive and composition did warrant an addition to the db and that the processing was not too obvious. Others thought it was obvious. However I can assure you that many, many more processed in a similar way have been rejected.

              A tone mapping tool was used.

                I was asking the same myself when I saw this picture. Thanks for clarification! I like it too

                    Get the right plug-in and it only a matter of moving sliders to adjust filter settings...

                        Its a superb shot followed by great post processing which shows what can be achieved these days. Technically its a back lit shot which in itself is/was grounds for rejection but its so good to see that it was in fact accepted even though it does not have a perfectly natural look.

                          Is it accepted now to throw over processed pictures in the queue.
                          Just wondering if I have a look at the current PC.

                            As I have one lesson from Angelo with postprocessing and even recieved unflatted PSD from him, I can guess that Nik Software plugins (Color Efex in this case) was used.

                              In my personal opinion is that colour efex tool makes the photos look flat and lifeless.
