Another look at After the Storm
The other day I posted an image that was taken after a recent storm.
It was a 5 image HDR and although it did look a little unrealistic in parts, I submitted it in this month’s competition to my local camera club (Workshop Camera Club).
The judge gave it first place in the open colour print section but also commented on the relationship between the sky and the water.
So after the meeting one of the better Photoshop guys mentioned a way of toning down the HDR look by using active blur. Active Blur is applied to a new layer then the opacity is pulled bach to about 5 – 8 %.
I think it worked on this image and has toned down the over saturated colour look that it had.
