Challenge: Selective Desaturation II (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Canon
Location: Akureyri, Iceland
Date: May 20, 2007
Aperture: f9
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/15
Date Uploaded: May 20, 2007

My first time doing a Sel desat photo, so the processing was a bit trial and error(lots of errors...) and I kind of lost my patience a few times.

Shot with 2 strobes.
Processing (not in exact order, since I nearly gave up on this, let it sit for a little while and came back to it again, then having forgotten what the hell I had done so far in processing):
RAW conversion, Black&White layer, Hue/Saturation layers, Curves layers, Selective Color Layers to enhance leaf color and also to change the color on the bucket label, clone stamp on bucket label and a corner of a garden shed behind a distant tree, crop and rotate, resize, High Pass sharpening, gradient layer for vignette, border, save for web.

I like the tilt & feel of this. Reminds me of a book illustration. Good work!

Creative. Interesting. Very well done.

The pose is too rigid. It seems to exuse "hurry up and snap the shot before I fall." Clever idea, though.

Wonderful idea. Maybe the bucket should be green?

05/21/2007 12:48:45 PM
the best idea yet
05/21/2007 12:47:23 PM
I like the idea, but the background is so busy and dark that it is hard to see the green leaves.

Researchers found that 2,177,888 people suffered ladder injuries from 1990 to 2005. With that, I wonder how you were able to get to those top branches with that little step stool.

There is much to like about this one, It is a clever shot indeed. 9 from me.
