Happy New Digital Photography Year

All three have been converted with ACR and post processed in CS3.

OK, stupid forum question:  How do I post my three images so that I get thumbnails displayed like in the posts above?  When I try to post them using "Insert Image", I get large images that fill much of the window, not convenient little thumbnails.  What am I missing?

Don't insert image, just under the screen where you enter text, choose Attachments, and select a file, then upload.

And after you upload, you have to go to "manage current attachments", which will list the file(s) you have uploaded, and show three little icons that do not look at all self-explanatory (at least to me). By random experiment I determined that the left-most icon means "insert this thumbnail" and the middle one means "delete this attachment." I haven't tried the right-hand icon. Perhaps it pours a nice stein of beer.

P.S. Anybody know how to send the full-size jpegs? The original upload link now simply shows me the source code for the uploader instead of running it.

So, Lisa, I see your 'stupid forum question' and I raise you one 'sfq.'

Why would one upload full-size JPEGs to this site? I guess we will send them to awolfe via yousendit or alike and anyone can download them from there.

[attachment=19141:raw_1_1280_AKulin.jpg]  
Camera Raw
- Changed white balance (7650/-3)
- Exposure + 50, Recovery +64
  - Clarity/Vibrance (+28/+24)
- Tweaked HSL - Oranges/Yellows to warm up buildings and Blues/Purples/Magentas to punch up sunset skies
- Reduced CA (-18/-21)
CS3
- Noise Reduction (Noiseware Pro) then flattened image
- Sharpened Image (Pixel Genius)
- Levels Adjustment Layer (0 to 236)
- Masked HSL Adjustment Layer - very minor adjustment to further enhance sky


[attachment=19142:raw_6_10...e_AKulin.jpg]
Camera Raw
- Left white balance As Shot
  - +16 Fill light
- Reduced CA
- Applied Square Crop
  CS3
  - Noise Reduction (Noiseware Pro) then flattened image
  - Sharpened Image (Pixel Genius)
  - Levels Adjustment Layer (0 to 236)
  - Masked HSL Adjustment Layer - very minor adjustment to further enhance sky
 

[attachment=19143:raw_7_12...e_AKulin.jpg]
Camera Raw
- Changed white balance (2850/0) to lose orange sky glow
- straightened image slightly assuming roofline over rail platforms should be level.  This resulted in minor crop and I cropped further on RHS side because edge of frame was dead-centre on a bright orange streetlight with starlike radials (it looked odd so I cropped)
  - Fill Light +9, Recovery +100
    - Clarity/Vibrance (+25/+12)
- Tweaked HSL - Some increases to Oranges/Yellows/Red to imporve color on main building in distances and lowered Blues/Cyans to less blueness in the area of the train platforms following white balance adjustment
  - Reduced CA (+7/-13)
  CS3
  - Noise Reduction (Noiseware Pro) then flattened image
  - Sharpened Image (Pixel Genius)

OK, thanks Tim & Eric, let's give this a try...

[attachment=19154:raw_4_LAN.jpg] [attachment=19155:raw_8_LAN.jpg] [attachment=19156:raw_10_LAN.jpg]

I found it didn't work from Internet Explorer (probably something to do with the security settings), but did work for me from Firefox.

I really wanted to crop two of them, so I did, especially the second one (with which I couldn't resist getting a little goofy too) - that's the same image as the one of the beach rock that Tim & Sigi processed above.  I recognize the third one as an IR image, something I have some experience with myself. :-)

Lisa

P.S.  When do we post our best attempt at our own image?

I guess I wasn't clear. I don't want to send the full-size ones to LL but to awolfe, as we sent the original raw files. But his upload server doesn't seem to work now.

D'oh!  I've had to migrate between datacenters recently - that was not on my list of things to get running again.  I'll post again when it's fixed.

Here we go... (these are the thumbnails, I will upload the full resolution files to awolfe's server when it begins working again).

I love seeing different interpretations of the same images!

I'll get mine submitted in a little while - I'm currently without my PC...  Good stuff so far - will make an interesting summary.

Hello,

I try to upload my processed images to the original raw upload link as requested but the link does not work anymore. Anyone else with this problem?

Siegfried

PS: I like the different interpretations - it is fun to see how people approach this

You can upload your smaller jpegs to this forum. We can't upload the full-res versions until Awolfe gets his upload gizmo working on his new datacenter.

Been a while with no action.

1.   A few folks haven't uploaded jpegs to the forum yet, and

2.   No word from awolfe on when he will get his uploader going again for the full-size versions.




I'm eager to see the rest of the renderings, so come on, folks!

Right - sorry that took a while, was without a PC and was expecting to get them a lot sooner too - things became busy.  They're a bit rough and ready for the same reasons.  Few thoughts on each:

[attachment=19644:raw_1.jpg]

Image is very soft - mostly because of lack of DoF but maybe also because of camera shake/high ISO smearyness.  Loads of options for processing, decent dynamic range in there.  Responded well to different colours too - could have gone for dawn or sunset look.  Ended up trying to get good pop from all the illuminated windows, but wasn't happy with the way the mid-distanced buildings merge together.  

[attachment=19645:raw_5.jpg]

This one was fun.  Found it a struggle to get much real crispness out of the fine detail on the shuttle.  Experimented with lifting shuttle out of shadows, but left it disappearing into the blackness in the end.  Had a real mess around with the scaling - I didn't like the in-camera crop much and I wanted to emphasise the ascent.  It's not particularly successful in this instance, but you can hopefully see what I thought - maybe what I'd have been doing with my own camera if I was there.  Great clouds of smoke and fire!

[attachment=19646:raw_6.jpg]

This was also fun - loads of tones to play with.  In the end I went for a really heavily processed, contrasty, aged B&W look - just by pulling sliders all over the place until it looked fun.  Made it squarer too.
