Cracking shots Vulkan.

Road To Nowhere is my pick of the bunch.
Not sure about Joshua Tree though - the sky's too black.

Which one?

Very nice images BTW ;:cool::smashin: Impressive PP : Some more art than photography but very impressive nonetheless (IMO)

Printing out 2 copies of Joshua Tree will surely use up your printers black ink:eek:

Nice images - But the skys are just a little too deep for me, and the post processing just a little heavy handed.

Love the first 2 though.

Sorry mate - just saying what I think.

:thumbsup:

No need to apologise Liquid.Your opinion is valued and comments appreciated.I know where your coming from.

They are a bit full on but I personally like the skys for the mountain shots,almost a foreboding,Not the place you want to be, if the weather changes type of feel.It was never meant to look entirely natural.


Everyone Please say what they feel....good or bad.

well more good if you dont mind:;) grin:

My opinion FWIW, is similar to senu's.

I'm massively impressed with the technique :thumbsup: and can certainly appreciate the results, they've just strayed a bit far from what I normally look for in photos.

I love PP when it is used to tweak a pic and make it a bit more as I would have hoped it to turn out, but these technique disguise the original for me. Sometimes I'd rather see a less than perfect shot than the unnatural look that a turn on Photoshop's more dramatic features can throw up.

All that aside, I do like the Joshua tree. It works well. Would be interested to see a more conventional version though.

Thanks mate..
Joshua tree was converted from this..
See, I'm liking that. But if I'm honest, your treatment has given it something extra.

Very nice job :smashin: . I notice your well into this at the moment and it shows.

Thanks mate..
Joshua tree was converted from this..
They are both great.. just different interpretations:smashin::cool:

As denno75uk has stated , your current mono , almost HDR style is getting to be a trademark.. and it is ace:thumbsup:

Nice tonal range on all those Vulkan! I particularly like the one of the old building on top of the hill. It has "mood" in bucketloads.

I'm not overly keen on the blurred effect of the street HDR shot though - just my personal taste.

Great conversions though - black blacks and white whites with lots inbetween. None of the washed out grey look. Excellent!

Great photos Vulkan. I really like Warden's Watching. The turned wheels on the landy make it almost feel like the landrover is surveying the view. A great shot.
I think your treatments, although unnatural, do make the pictures tell stories which they otherwise might not. Good stuff.
