Hi folks. It's been a while since I last posted any pics. College and life has kind of gotten in the way of getting "out there", as it were. Anyway, I have been able to experiment more with Photoshop and I'm pretty pleased with some of the results.
These are still a bit on the dark side, you might want to turn down the ambient lighting. This lighting element has been a constant thorn in my side. I get a lot of feedback that the images are too dark and I've tried in the past to compensate. Trouble is, then I don't like it. And that's pants! Lol.
Anyway, check these out and let me know if things are getting better. More importantly, let me know where I can improve.
The top image is Glen Coe, Scotland. HDR again I'm afraid. I think more subtley done this time. The second image is the village of Glamis - aye HDR - just about six miles from here. Glamis is more famous for it's castle but the village itself is lovely. Glamis has a slight vignette which looks a bit odd against a white background but looks superb ( to my mind at least) against black. I use the full res version as a desktop.
