    From Florence - part 7 - Abstracts

    OK, those aren't abstracts, I know. Just a couple shots not directly related to the city.

    Mostly playing with the complementary colors contrast (yellow-blue).

    Let me know if you find these compositions interesting.


    The whole set can be found in my site

    Part 1 - The River
    Part 2 - The Duomo
    Part 3 - Love Padlocks
    Part 4 - The Haze
    Part 5 - Pigeons

    Great shots and exposure, Miltos. I particularly like the composition of the first one. Fantastic colors on each.

    I like the composition of the second one, though I think I would have liked it even more if there had been no clouds in the sky. For me, the subject is the tree and I don't like that it has the distracting cloud line in the middle of it.

    The first one appears overly sharpened, which I don't remember ever thinking about your images.

    Thanks for your comments Sergio and Mike.

    Mike I think you are right, the first one is over-sharpened. I did another PP pass yesterday but today it doesn't look good to me either.

    In the second one what I saw in the first place is the sky triangle between the tree, cloud and building.

    I have replaced #17 with a better (I think) version.

    The sharpening is now fine in #17. However, notice the strong halos that are not sharpening halos on the street light. There is a strong blue halo mostly on the top and left side. There is a strong red halo mostly on the right side. Is that chromatic aberration?

    Mike this is CA and I really have no idea why my 24-105 gave me that in some shots.

    The image is well worth getting rid of the CA: http://digital-photography-school.co...n-in-photoshop

    Thanks for your help Mike, really appreciated it.

    I uploaded a new version where I tried to fix for CA and halos. I used a different method however, applied the Lend Correction -> Custom -> Chromatic Aberration filter in Photoshop and then a manual mask to the problematic areas.

    Thanks again.
