    old things

    Old drive wheel from a shearing stand and foot step from a horse drawn jinker, discarded against an old apple box gum tree, which from its size and the condition of its bark is estimated to be over 100 years old.
    Sorry, copy and paste step did not seem to work. Looks like the end bit of link did not copy.

    Still having problems with copying adddress from tinypic. Box with URL for copying is too small for address string. Had to type it in manually. Hope it works this time. Don't worry. My last attempt at this and so will not annoy you with futher attempts at this post.

    In tinypic, you just click once on the url and it highlights the whole thing for you. You don't have to wipe your mouse down the string. Just click once and do the ^C thing to grab it. Then do the ^V to paste it.

    In this case you only needed to close the [IMG] tags. On both ends of the link make sure [IMG] and [/IMG] are at the front and end respectively.

    I'd play with the saturation a little and maybe the contrast a tad to see if it makes the image pop.

    My intrest is somewhat torn between subjects here. I think if they were either grouped closer together or better if there was only one subject it would be stronger. Interesting subject matter though.

    Paul and I had the same thought...a tighter grouping and a little more work in layer adjustments for building color and tone depth. I took the liberty of changing the grouping and a little toward working a deeper tonal value (but only a little).

    Re: old things

    Chris, what kind of adjustment layers do you use for, multiply, for example, or screen? Brightness and Contrast? Levels?

    Re: old things

    Just go to Layer, then scroll down to new Layer Adjustment and a litany of options will come up...by and large, I stay with multiply and screen, generally in the neighborhood of 20-30% opacity and on occasion, curves, color balance etc. It is one of those things you just have to play with but it allows you to work your imager without bruising the original pixels.

    In the layer adjustment, I generally use Levels and its sub menus to get to multiply or screen and a bunch more. Sorry for the omission

    Re: old things

    A big thank you to all those kind people who took the time to post positive comments and for their most helpful suggestions. Have to admit my work is not and never will be 'commercial' in its intent ( and certainly not in its quality! ). I take pics simply for fun and enjoyment. But that doesn't imply that I don't want the end result to be the very best I can achieve, hopefully with the odd 'keeper' being achieved as a bit of bonus serendipity. That is why I so value the comments of others on how I can improve the end result. I also value this site as it gives me an opportunity to study the work of others who really know what this game is all about. At the moment I am on a steep learning curve!

    Hi neighbour and welcome to CiC,

    I think the guys have covered it and I look forward to seeing more of your images and also encourage you to comment and pariticpate on other's postings as this also helps you understand your own work better.

    Re: old things

    Thank you for welcome. I actually grew up in Melbourne. Only became a 'bushie' after the kids left home and we decided to move North.
    Am looking at other people's postings with great interest. As for commenting on same? I have to learn a lot more and gain more understanding about what it is all about before I venture down that path.
    Have changed to colour profile you recommended. Not sure whether to use North American or European colour profile setting. At the moment I am using the European. Any suggestions please?
    Ken
