statue close to Sansepolcro/ItalyCapture One, Topaz Studio
I like the composition and the sky. However, Francis looks quite dark. I think bumping him up 2 or 3 stops to zone 6 to 7 would look great.
think @ScottO has a valid point
Cool work but I agree, a little dark ..........
I agree with the others about tweaking the darkness on the sculpture.
Thanks @ScottO, @el48tel, @BobKramer and @cre8art for your comments. Yes, poor Francis is too dark. Here is a hopefully brighter version of this historical person.
I know I'm going to be criticized .......... but ............your highlights and whites need to be closer to where they were ...... they are now too bright
no, not at all. I just looked at the jpeg again and found lots of artefacts. I will have to do this from scratch = RAW again....
In Capture One would do a basic edit .....Brighten shadowsBrighten mid-tones
Then adjust the highlights last - you don't want to blow them
Forget Studio etc --- that's making it more complicated
Ok Terry @el48tel, want to close the subject. This one I did in Capture One only. Adjustment layers for darkening the background and brightening Francis. As far as I am concerned no clipping, no blown highlights.
Sorry if it's got to you ----but hey - I think you got there
No, no it didn't. I had something in mind but did not execute what I had in mind. Simple as that.
Fair comment - but I think you made a crackingly good image with the last attempt
