Contemplating the Cliffs

Posted by
Peter (Amsterdam, Netherlands) on 1 January 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

My Am3 is looks a little tired at the end of 2010, and the images on my blog often are a faint reflection of the orinigal in Lightroom/Photoshop.
Any suggestions to improve that?

Don't change nothing here, light is so subtle, love it, super compo up & down.
(and i'm not for heavy treatments, i prefer photography than Photoshopy ;)
H@ppy to you & yours (the Saint-Germainoise girl included, please ;) !

Best wishes for 2011.

Whoa! Amazing landscape and image! I agree, it looks great to me! This new year Im gonna try to do more photos and less photoshops, so to speak! Btw, Im from Barcelona but I live in Stockholm, so far my pics have all been taken in Sweden.

@Sonia Nansid: Hi Sonia, thanks for your reaction. Interesting discussion about manipulating or treatinment the photo. I often do it (a lot). The car in the Cliff picture, has gone, because I found it disturbing and the 3 men are highlighted, the cliff has more contrast than the scene in the forground, and so on. Why did I do that? because I think it makes it better. Does it violates the reality? Yes. Is that "bad"? I don't think so. But my ideal is a straight print!

I totally agree with you and I truly believe that we are manipulating reality from the same second we take the pictures, since we show what we want and as we want. Ive read your text under the picture again, the compression here in Am3 makes the pictures very different (in a bad way). A part from that, that happens to everybody, I thought that my pictures were TOO different and Ive change from Firefox to Chrome. Then the pictures look quite ok, so you may try that.
