HDR on a single RAW file. NI. Photoshop.

Sorry if you've seen this already. But I really like it and wanted to have it in my Challenge Portfolio.

This sheriff did NOT want me taking pictures of his inmates. He came over told me not to, then asked me if I was with the Press. He didn't tell me to delete my shots, so I didn't. But I sure didn't take any more!

Cool shot, love his expression. He's the one who looks like a killer in that shot, not the convicts. ehehe

Hahaha, this is an awesome photo. Not a big fan of the processing, but what an amazing contrast in expressions..

Good idea for a series. I was concerned that if I had gone any closer, his stare would've broken my lens, pierced my brain, and lobotomized me for sure! At least with a lobotomy I wouldn't care about spending the rest of my life in his prison. :-D

That's one sheriff I don't want to mess with... Great expression.

This is a great...amazing image done in by HDR (or processing). Just an opinion but it doesn't do the subject much justice.

Great shadows!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2007 10:38:53 PM
yeah, that's against the law. you shoulda had your camera confiscated.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2007 10:38:19 PM
I really, really like this shot. This colors, the PP, the look on Officer Badass's face!

Good choice :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2007 09:43:43 PM
A little heavy on the processing for my taste. Dosn't look real.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2007 12:30:47 PM
that sheriff's face is great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2007 04:48:43 AM

I'll never get tired of looking at this pic, already a classic on DPC. Well done.

Sheriff doesn't look too thrilled to be on camera...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2007 07:21:49 PM
Photo quality is too soft.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2007 07:18:59 PM
YIKES!! I'm glad he's not looking at me! Or is he? AHH! I may not sleep tonight. I hope you didn't get hurt too severely while taking this pic! Cool shot and back to bump you up to 8 for risking life & limb!

Doesnt look right....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2007 11:08:24 PM
I like the processing. HDR with some smoothing of some sort? His stare is classic. It looks like a young Willie Nelson on the Right. And now that I look at it... the boss man looks like Tiger Woods on 'roids. :)

Edited to actually use punctuation marks!

Nice shot, but the shadows on some of the faces distract me.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2007 10:15:36 PM
A little too much post processing for my liking. Great glare though!

I love the look the Sheriff is giving you, and the inmates appear to not even notice you're there.

Like someone mentioned in your comments when you posted the image earlier, I really like the image, but not a big fan of the post processing. Great expression. Good work ~ 6.

01/14/2007 03:57:25 PM
Yay, I know who's this is.
He looks like he's about to shoot lasers of death from his eyes. Either that or he's constipated.

From the thumb this looked like a painting! Nice colours and what a look the Sheriff has on his face!! :o)

The policeman's look is priceless, but the lighting is very strange, looks like HDR gone wild.

01/13/2007 09:29:58 AM
I always get a kick out of this shot. The look on the guards face is just classic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2007 01:35:57 AM
From that look, did you end up joining the inmates? Nice shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 08:31:45 PM
I like the processing. Interesting subjects.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 07:35:29 PM
the excitement of a shot like this comes from its realism. your processing subtracts the realism, and therefore subtracts the excitement.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 11:46:08 AM
nice shot, it just seems too overprocessed to me. not counting down b/c of that. great job, and nice colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 11:16:47 AM

Ahh Slippy, such a familiar image to us all. It is still a very nice image with good colour and great characters
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good pj shot. Interesting to look at, and technically good. I find the shadow/light thing contributing to the image. Nice job.

Glad to see my tax dollars at work. Two guys getting paid to let a bunch of criminals loaf around in the shade. Wait a minute, that sonofabitch with the sideburns stole my car!

A little heavy on the noise reduction. The guard looks way to serious!
