About the Image(s)

Several years ago a few of us went to the Montana Ghost of Bannack. I found
composition. It was shot with my Nikon D70 and five exposure brackets at one stop intervals knowing I wanted to capture detail outside too.

It was processed in Aurora 2018 using a warm realistic preset. I then opened in Adobe Camera Raw and applied a gradient mask on the floor to reduce the blue tint of the shadows. I applied some edge darkening and also used Topaz AI Clear and added the edge stroke.

Nice blend and balance in the tones between the interior and the exterior. There seems to be a red edging on the door and window that carries through to a red color in the shadows left of the door. That might just be a paint that they used back then, but I would be inclined to neutralize it on the floor to the left of the door.   Posted: 05/08/2022 19:33:03

You took excellent advantage of the lighting from the outside, adding color to this room's interior. It makes for an excellent high-definition range image. The outside colors may have caused the green tint on the facing left wall. The high point of this image is the clarity of the image with nice lines and a beautiful scene in the background.   Posted: 05/09/2022 18:36:38

The composition, colors, texture and light invite me into the frame. Very pleasing to my eye. Well done.   Posted: 05/14/2022 09:21:31
