Fluff! I do like it, how did you do it without the original photo and working through the entire process again? Amazing. maybe I should just send any photos that have potential to you and you and work your magic. How's your sweet wife doing?

Jel, interesting. It is nice to know a bit about why we like pictures in the attempt to reproduce something that is appealing. You know my mode of operation is to push buttons until I like something. Unfortunately 15 minutes later I hate it. :(

I hate to do this - you're gonna feel a little foolish..

All I did was take your PR picture and open it in IrfanView - +20 contrast 1.3 gamma, +15 saturtion, and +5 red (I might have done -5 blues too, not sure).

I;m not implying it's universally "better", it just suits my tastes better - it's the same with your new flower one up there, it looks a little "flat" to me. The style and work is lovely, the overall image is a little "lifeless" - to me, not to everyone.



She's well this week or so; two weeks ago was rough - she forgot that we have been together (together, together) for 21 years and acted like she was just staying in a friend's house.. got all shiity when I kissed her.. threw a cup of hot coffee at me, etc.
It was difficult trying to dress her (i have to or else she goes out with her bra on the outside of her jumper!) when she was acting as if we're just friends.. emotionally painful for me too.

She asks me this week why i have a burn on my arm - she's forgotten two weeks ago totally - I;m not going to upset her so i tell a white lie and say I did it when I spilled a cup of coffee.

My take on the flower - no implication of "better", just different.

One has contrast with colour changes, the other flattens the contrast and keeps the colour changes.

Thanks, Fluff! It seemed brighter before I posted it here. Your version is lighted just right. Have any of your great photos that you would share with me to play with? Please?

Now THAT is an impressive dark image - no flat contrast, punchy but low-key.

People in photography often misunderstand the concepts of low and high key - it's not just under exposure and over exposure. They are darker and lighter than normal BUT keeping good range of contrast and definition (obviously, also within what the photographer wants to show).

I'd give this one a good 9 out of ten paw-prints.
High Five!.. Oh.. only four pads.. High four!!

Have a play with these, if you like - Amble looking from west -> east, into the harbour.
We parked where the "8" of 1068 is and looked east towards the harbour. (Switch to sat and look at the green there - lovely to drive around!)

How generous! Thank you, Fluff. I can't wait to go play. And thank you for the insight into 'punchy.' I know exactly what you mean even if I can't explain it as well as you can. I'm hope your wife is having a better week, making your week much better as well!
