About the Image(s)

While looking back over my Israel visit of 2018 I came across this image. The tour bus had stopped for a moment and I got off to take this photograph. It had to be quick and I had no time to look for the best angle.

Canon M50 with EF M15-45 mm lens at 45mm. 1/80 sec. @f/16 ISO 125

Basic processing in Lightroom Classic. Cropped in Photoshop and flipped. Color corrections and enhancements made in Photoshop. Distracting objects removed in Ps using Generative Fill.

The image is sharp ,and you did a good job of removing objects. However, I like the color in the original image better. Just my thought.   Posted: 07/03/2024 12:49:05

This is an interesting interpretation ... again, like your previous work, I actually enjoy the old Slide-film like aesthetic. This type of post production editing really do give old photographic images a new lease of life.

Well done!   Posted: 07/04/2024 05:56:38

Chan - I like the processing - reminds me of old Kodachrome slides - a warm/comfortable vibe. Interesting scene - well exposed/processed. Two questions: It appears that the final image is different from the original shared (position of man's arm, box, second person behind him) - or are these due to your edits? Also- in an image of this type - does the person add or detract from the scene?

The image has been flipped and I used Generative Fill to remove the person from behind the man. All in keeping with PSA Ethics guidelines.   Posted: 07/07/2024 06:30:14

Excellent image, especially when considering that you had little time to prepare. The aesthetics are very pleasing and the details and sharpness are excellent. Each arch provides a window for the viewer to look through. The person in the image demonstrates this as well. Excellent work, thanks for sharing!   Posted: 07/08/2024 07:50:40

You did a wonderful job of removing distractions, and I think the person you left in gives a good sense of scale! I'm not sure about the color palette compared to the original. It almost looks like a print that has been somewhat faded by the sun.   Posted: 07/09/2024 17:22:07
