Post-Processing Challenge #153

Welcome to Post-Processing Challenge #153!

This summer I am helping run our small museum here in Sointula on Malcolm Island, BC. One of the things I have been doing is taking some images of the collection and the museum for the records and promotional purposes.

The image I have selected for Challenge #153 is one of an HDR sequence I took which features some of the history of the Sointula Co-Op store.

Rather than provide the whole sequence, I thought it would be interesting to see what people can come up with based on a single image from the sequence.

This was taken with my K5 and Sigma 8-16mm lens, set at 8mm. The settings were Av mode, ISO 160, highlight priority mode, f9 and 0.5 second exposure. Tripod mounted. There is mixed lighting, sunlight from the left side, halogen lighting above and fluorescent lighting in the back room. There's some geometric distortion, a little PF on high contrast edges and some vignetting as well.

It needs some work, so good luck and I am really looking forward to what you all come up with.

I will close this challenge Sunday 12th July in the evening around 7 pm PDT.

Hi, SointArt, this is my way. There are many subject in your picture and I try to extract one to relate a story.

Going for a surreal, album-arty look. So many great elements in the original.

Just a quick bit of red, white and blue to celebrate the 4th of July - a day late.

First attempt: Try to correct distortion and neutralize colors.
I love the image. I am drawn to the bust but everything is important, even the back room.

Third attempt I added some grain to give it an old film look.

I liked the image and here are my 3 attempts All 3 have a bit of distortion correction and level adjustments... and varying levels of cropping.

The first one is what a more natural approach would look like. This is what I would make it look like if I wanted it show it to a client (I don't have clients, just to make sure you understand, but in case I did, that's what I would try to do )



In this 2nd one, I wanted a B&W look but also wanted it to be a bit more dramatic so perspective adjustment was necessary to bring the bust more up front.



And in this 3rd one I went for a whole different crop. Again, the objective was to have a clear subject in the picture, yet still give you the whole context of the place where it is in. The film emulation and color treatment give it a more timeless, 70s look that in a subtle way. I like subtle.



Everything was done in the original version of Corel Aftershot Pro.

Bit more retro, bit more dreamy.

Here's a few more. This has been fun to mess around with.

Outlines


Maybe a watercolor style



Some posterization



Trying a different focus



And just for fun

Here's another perspective. Just for grins.

I processed this with a new program - beta version - called Affinity. It is from Serif which I believe is England-based. It has some nice features, and I know absolutely nothing about how to use it. This was all trial-and-error guesswork. If you're a Mac guy the beta is available at no charge at the moment. I don't know if it is also PC based or not. But I think it is worth a look.
