Anyone a fan of this type of processing?

Some times I think it's fun to go over the top with artsy processing. It only works on certain types of photos though. I would never do this for a client of course, unless they specifically asked. This is just for fun. Comments / critiques? You won't hurt my feelings, as I know this is a bit over the top.

Hmm.... not a fan, I guess. It reminds me of that Pixel Painter (external link) guy.

Is the dust on the sensor part of the artistic side of it? No, I am sorry but this photo is ...... I don't see anything artistic about it...I mean, selective coloring of the sky. Kind of weird silhouette on the shadows. The photo and the composition itself isn't abstract enough to give a more meaningful interpretation. Looks like your standard landscape shot and the photographer tried to be artistic about it AFTERWARD..... Sorry for the harsh tone and I didn't know this is your photo...heheh..

So it sounds like I should do more of these based on how much everyone loves them haha. Here is the original in case you wanted to see.

And TooManyShots, I just did notice the dust. Guess I'll have to send it in. Or is there an easy way to clean it yourself? Compressed air maybe?

I could imagine this in a children's book or something.. It looks cartoonish with the grain and sky.
I go overboard processing things at times just to see what I can make it look like. Usually turns out looking odd but it's good to play around and see what effects come out of what settings.

Edit: Was it selective coloring or did you just bring the exposure of the rocks way down?

It was not selective coloring. It was a watercolor filter in Photoshop with a shadow value of 2. That's what brought the shadows on the rocks. I also cooled the blue in the sky a bit to make it look more dusk.

Since you asked, it's really pretty awful. If you're interested in pursuing that kind of processing I'd suggest a plugin like Topaz Labs Simplify. You'd have some more control over things and some finer adjustments available.

Haha not interested in this type of processing at all. Was mainly just doodling with a throw away picture and was seeing if anyone else did the same. :p

I'm just scratching my head as to what "this type of processing" is? Increasing contrast, introducing noise, and experimenting with color brushing doesn't make a type or style or art. Maybe it's just me that doesn't get it.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

I also don't dig the image. But to bring a little bit of dissent to the thread, I think you would be crazy to stop an artistic pursuit because some people (on the innernet !) don't like this particular rendition. Maybe we have bad taste. Maybe this particular piece is in fact bad but through refinement over time the process could result in images that are universally lauded--or not. At the very least, you're experimenting, which is great.
