About the Image(s)

I thought I would take one more Christmas ornament picture before putting everything away. This Santa was sitting on the table, shot a closeup with my Olympus TG-6 camera. Auto Exposure setting, 36 mm, f/2.0. Edited with Capture One 21, and Photoshop. Cut the subject out, and added a new background for him. Blurred out the background image, to give it depth.

I agree this background is much better than the one in the original. I like how the background is red as well, it gives the image the festive setting. I also like how you brightened up his beard and made it whiter and a little more clear.   Posted: 01/13/2022 13:50:38

Nice capture Nelson, good holiday image. I agree, the background change really works well. Good detail and sharpness for f2.0. I like that you brighten up his eyes - gives him more personality. Looks like there is a blue cast on most the white areas (beard, etc) of Santa. Would strengthen the composition getting rid of that excess blue.   Posted: 01/17/2022 11:26:02
