Yes, I am very new to photography. I think I have a good eye for seeing a shot but know little about manipulating my camera so that the shot is optimized. I am on here to learn first and foremost. So please, post my picture and tell me how to control my camera to better attain the desired result :)

Here is the original and my edit together. mertimmercrim, I don't think you did anything wrong in your camera settings. I really think you (or your camera, if you had it on a program mode) did a great job in gathering detail in both areas. This is what I want to point out to newer photographers (which I kind of thought you might be).....Don't be disappointed with your camera just because your pictures don't look exactly the way you thought they would straight out of the camera. You probably did everything you could do with just your camera. Almost every great photo you see in all of the photography magazines you probably look at has been edited to some extent. Most of them are not straight out of the camera. I used two programs for my edit, Photoshop CS5 and a plugin called Topaz Adjust. Don't worry about these programs just yet. Continue to learn your camera first. Just remember that some, of all of our photos, need some "tweaking". I'd almost bet that the sky in my edited version is a deeper blue than it actually was. Some will fault me for that. I could have made it lighter (more natural), but I like deep blue skies. There was something on the steps in the middle foreground that I just couldn't identify, so I removed it. I don't like the signs but they would have required a lot more time than I wanted to spend on it; so I left them. What I want to do is encourage you! You took a very nice photo...it just needed a little follow up work. If you take a photo in the future that looks "almost" like a "really good" photo, see if you can find a friend that does some photo editing to help you bring out the details. Keep up the good work and welcome to the forum!

And as for you, powerslave, I've long enjoyed your work here on this forum and on your website. I think you're just putting me on, and I don't think I'm going to teach you anything. You do some very nice work and I enjoy it very much!

thanks alot, rclester. Your edit looks very nice and your words are quite encouraging and they are appreciated greatly. I will use this forum and its members' wisdom to my advantage. I have CS5 but it's such a colossus that I don't know where to start and it's slow learning. could you tell me, what exactly you did with the picture to achieve these results?

Please don't feel that I'm trying to avoid your question but, although all of the work was done from within CS5, the heavy lifting was done by the Topaz Adjust plugin. It just involved making a duplicate layer, converting that layer to a smart filter, applying a Topaz Adjust effect, brushing away part of that effect, then flattening the layers. I then repeated that whole process again using a different Topaz Adjust effect and removed whatever that thing was at the bottom of the picture by using the healing brush and cloning stamp. That's a very short answer to a question that would take a lot longer to answer in writing than it took me to do. I actually only spent about 20 minutes on the edit.

Here is a link to Topaz Adjust tutorials if you are interested...http://www.topazlabs.c​om/webinars/ (external link) Scroll down the page until you see a tutorial entitled "Introduction To Topaz Adjust - Make Your Photos Pop!(1:11:00)" There are other Topaz Adjust tutorials there that you might want to watch also, but this is good one to start with.

I do want to caution you on something. It was not my intent to get you overly concerned with photo editing. I just wanted to show how much more detail you had in that photo than you knew you had. Concentrate on learning your camera first! I'm so glad that I started learning photography before all of the program modes that are on the cameras today came into being. You say you have CS5. That's wonderful, but I started doing 35mm photography in about 1975 and didn't take time to start learning Photoshop until 2009. Photoshop CS5 is a huge program, don't try to do it all at once and overwhelm yourself. I don't know how old you are, but photography can be enjoyed for a long time.

I'll be looking for your photos. Good luck!

I'm really digging this shot, though I'd love to see the colour version too. I like the range of light and darks here!

Cool. :cool:

I get people really polarized over like vs. hate on this shot. The thing you can't see is that it is actually SUPER high resolution. The tiny little houses in the middle-right look blurry, but at full res, you can easily see window trim! :D

I'll upload a color version when I get a chance!
