I see pictures like the one below all the time, and I can't figure out how it's done. I see many versions like it, a lot in wedding photos, etc. They usually have a fade to black circular border around the edge. Then the colors seem to have a very 'cool' feel to them.

The picture on the bottom is kind of the 'people' version of that. Can anyone help? How the heck is this done?

Thanks guys!

1) Circular polarizer. Vignette might be from the lens, but it can be added in PP
2) Nothing, really. The photographer did a good job of balancing ambient light and the subject. Vignette might be natural or from PP
3) Original image is overexposed and then desaturated in PP

I think your monitor may need calibrating

Other people? But only two people replied...

I think the first person was being a little short, but not rude. I second his explanations.

Though Karl is very, very nice =) And the collection of auroras, SO COOL!

Oh, I just realized I misread his post.

Teak, I just looked at the threads you started, and it seems as though everyone has been very friendly and helpful...

I say your monitor may need calibrating because the images look very orange...

Image of a sunset...nearly completely blown out orange highlights,
Image of a couple...really bronzed complexions...slightly underexposed
Image of a wedding pic....flat colors, desaturated, but not blue tinted. Slightly tanned complexions, kind of a weird off color, very overexposed....

Usually uncalibrated monitors are very "cool" and often the contrast is wonky
Thus your monitor may be uncalibrated. I figured maybe that explanation didn't need to be walked through but there you go.

I don't think you want to replicate that look, IMO it looks really bad.

+1. All of those photos with the exception maybe being the sunset are technically very bad. Blown highlights, WB issues, underexposed. *shudder*

that last shot seems to be a style i've been seeing quite a bit now...i think many like it...here's a link to maybe get something similar?...not sure if it'd work or not...i haven't tried it myself, just bookmarked it in case i want to when i'm bored sometime:

good luck...also short responses don't always mean the person is being a D*&K...a lot of times it's just easier, and when read online comes off bad...if Karl puts a smiley face after his comment it's all good...i rarely put smileys so i know that sometimes i might come off worse than intended
