    red hut

    Hi!

    A shot of a red hut and a lake and nice tracks on the snow. C&C most welcome.

    Left one is what i ended up with, and the original jpeg from the camera on the right, for comments about the PP.

    That's a very, very good bit of post-processing work you have done in order to end up with a very nice image. You must have spent quite a long time working on it.

    I notice that you say your original was a JPEG. Is this because your camera cannot make RAW files? I am sure your post-processing skills would be able to develop even more if you had RAW files to work with.

    Thanks!

    My EOS 20D makes both RAW and JPEG when RAW is chosen. I did the post processing by combining 3 different exposures from the raw, and quite a lot of cloning, as one can see. But the sky is from the same photo.

    Those trees on the right tested that patience quite a bit. I'm still not sure if i'm pleased with them. And it was actually very nice way to use time, when I should have been studying optimization methods for welding production

    Really nice post processing, Reima! The difference is quite striking.

    The image on the right is showing two spots in the sky. You may want to see if these spots appear on other images and if so, check the lens for spots and/or dust. If this isn't the source, you may want to check the camera's sensor and, if needed, get it cleaned.

    Thanks Frank and Sharon!

    Frank, actually there were quite a lot of those spots to clean when full size. I had wiped the lens clean, and i think sensor might need the cleaning. Perhaps I should compare pics taken with different lenses. Some of the lenses also have dust inside them. But that takes money, and i'm quite the low budget photographer, and still have at least two years of that low budgeting left at the university!

    Hi Reima,

    Looks like the sensor needs cleaned.Take any lens and set it to f/22 and take a shot of blue sky.This will make all the dust on the sensor visible.
    I don't think dust on the lens or in it will give results like you got with the image you posted.

    If you don't have one.I recommend buying a blower also.

    Re: red hut

    It may be obvious but you want to hold the camera face down and lock up the mirror when you use the blower. Sometimes this is all it needs. If you need to go further it might be worth a visit to your local professional camera shop. Some will give the sensor a simple wipe at no charge. Just make sure you get someone that knows what they are doing!

    Actually, it's not so obvious for me haven't cleaned anything but the outer surface of the lens yet. I think I'll ask mr. google a couple of questions before buying anything, and perhaps visit the local shop.

    Great work on the processing. Patience is a great virtue to have with PP.

    Thanks! I tried quite an amount of different techniques to achieve the results.
