    I knew you had a winner there Steve, when I saw it on screen yesterday. Great shot. :cool: I'm, however, having problems converting my shots from RAW, as DPP just hangs on every image :( I think I know what the problem is and a reinstall should fix it, but where did I put the install disk ?

    Honesty I didn't chicken out, I was really [****] to miss it (can't really say on an open forum why lol) :( I did text Barney.

    Great photos... look like you had a good time.

    I'm beginning to wonder if anyone else actually took any photos yesterday! I know we had a couple of weirdos amongst us (those odd film-users), but we're yet to see photos from the other digital folks.


    :D

    Very nice shots. I didn't see this thread so I put mine in the appraisal section.

    Haha...every time I looked around I would spot a mysterious woman in a bowler hat with a Leica spying on people from afar... but I didn't notice you! Very sneaky. lol

    The processing went something like this:

    Original (well - a similar shot, anyway):

    [​IMG]

    In Adobe Lightroom, apply sharpening to taste, apply the preset 'Aged Photo'.

    Fiddle with the exposure/brightness settings/Black clipping/Highlight recovery so the result isn't too washed-out:

    [​IMG]

    The settings for this snap:

    [​IMG]

    Then on to edit a copy in Photoshop with the Lightroom settings applied.

    In PS, duplicate the original layer, go to Gaussian Blur, give it something between 7 and 30 of blur.

    On the layers tab, set the blurred layer to 'Overlay' or hard light or soft light - whichever gives the best result. Then reduce the transparency of the layer to taste.

    It's possible the darker areas may be too dark, so use curves and or levels to correct.

    This gives ...

    [​IMG]

    The black line is added as follows: add a new layer on top of the others, and do Select/All

    Then Select/Modify/Contract - for a 600 pixel image I use a value of 3

    Then Select/Refine Edge with the following settings as a guide:

    [​IMG]

    Select/Inverse, then apply a black bucket fill to finish the black line off.

    Hope this is reasonably clear :D

    Sorry To take so long I came down with a shocking cold on the day so I hope I have not passed it on... and I have only just looked at my pics, half were on my 40d the rest on my pocket minolta G600. The sort of strange things you take on such a day...
