Challenge: Free Study XVI (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Canon PowerShot S50
Location: Basement-level bar in State College, PA
Date: Dec 27, 2006
Aperture: f2.8
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/4
Galleries: Portraiture
Date Uploaded: Dec 27, 2006

You know, the uneditted version of this is verrry dark, and I have a version that plays off of that, but I liked this version. A Free Study is a good chance to try something new.

The processing here was conversion to a quadtone (it's hard to tell, though) and a Levels layer with the blending mode set to Hard Light. The low contrast comes from the mid-point Input Levels slider being pushed hard to the right, and the Output Levels sliders placed close together.

Hope you like this. If not, let me know.

Hey, just came across this photo. I like it a lot, I guess partially because I had a similar idea some time ago
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30214/thumb/270213.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30214/thumb/270213.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
based on your finish, I am glad I never entered it in any challenge :)

I despair!
This should never have scored so low.
It was never going to win, but should hve scored around the 6 mark. Just goes to show how the DPCers will only vote high on picture postcard entries.
Never mind, i love it.

Goes to show, in the 3 seconds that people will take to score an image, something outside the box gets tromped. Thank you for trying. good luck and I look forward to more creative work from you.

ignore any comments you have got that it is lacking contrast or anything.
this is art and makes the viewer think.
good luck

Intersting entry, very different from anything else I've seen on DPC in a long time. Doesn't really do it for me, but good luck to you.

Huh?

I'm sure you have a mix of people who like this, and a mix that don't. I personally think it's great just because it is so different. I'll be anxious to see where this ends up. Good Luck to you! 7

It's good to see something different here. I could go for it being just a "bit" darker. Also, there is a white spot on left shoulder than could be cloned out.

Lightened a tad too much, in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice idea - think I might even have taken things a touch further - really keep it in the realm of the subliminal.

WAY WAY too light. I had to tilt my monitor to even see that there was anything there.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like this. The lightness paired with the shadow makes it seem a little off balance. This image challenges the viewer which very few here at dpc do and that's worth more than gold. Nice work. 10
