    Re: >> show us your editing.

    1] mostly done in On1 with a little help from Pse.
    2] sunset from long ago
    3] Lr5 edit
    4] original lumix fz300 raw file
    'picture window' was the thought I had when taking the photo -- I often think of the name then; a usually keep it. Sort of gives a reason for the picture. Taken while walking the dog to dry her off after a swim.
    Honest comments/cc and questions welcome
    not sure about the perspectives/angles (??)

    Re: >> show us your editing.

    today's little fiddle with a couple of Oly pics from a walk with Boof.
    2nd is the original flower pic which was blurred and blended with the 3rd pic of blue painted bitumen which was changed to green using hue/white balance adjustments. Didn't quite happen as simple as that; however all was done in On1 🤔 . #4: flower with Radial/motion/Gaussian blurring
    Did I know it was going to end up like that? Certainly not🤗
    comments/cc/questions welcome


    On1 certainly has it's dramas; however On1 does seem the better to use after spending a couple days with Luminar.
    Some of that comes down to my experience and knowledge of On1 but ATM, the only reason I might consider Luminar will be if the DAM system is worth the dramas of learning another program. Luminar seems to have more 'expert' online support; much of which is likely paid for. All of this edit could have been done in Lr5/Pse12, although it's very unlikely I would have had the motivation to do it.
    BTW: the blue file (disable parking sign) is the file before the flower; not bad to just two clicks lol

    Good that you get some pleasure out of playing around with these programs.

    certainly wouldn't do it if I didn't enjoy the challenge and results

    "mud map" (crack in the ground)
    "See you at the stop sign"
    Started from 2nd image -- texture was made from a photo of the ground and was taken on the same day same place as the main photo ---- No; didn't know I would use them together
    The "stop sign" was moved there --- note top of original file

    Nice crack!

    I think the red button or whatever it is is a bit small to be effective in the image.

    that's why I mentioned it in the heading; so people might look for it --- plastic bottle cap I think it was

    found this video early this morning --- 3am early!! damn dogs next door!!

    so I had a go; several times actually at the fake slow exposure editing as shown in the video.. Sort of got my head around it and now have a sort of work flow in place. Not perfect as far as masking goes however the end effect is pretty amazing imo, and it also hides the millions of tiny flying insects. Not the first time they have mucked up my plans
    Just for a little extra; I added a little warmth into the centre of the radial blur --- next time I will give motion blur a try.

    Your honest thoughts/CC and questions very welcome

    Re: >> show us your editing.

    Thanks Greg and Chris for your honest thoughts with my edits

    Only 15 minutes; however there is plenty to learn IMO.
    What was done here in PS can be done one way or another in most programs with layers. When doing edits like this; it is important the light direction is similar with all parts of the puzzle. I'm not sure about the tree -- could need some shadow across the building (??)
    I just wish I could "see" the image that is possible.
    Don't feel you need to do such edits in 15 minutes -- days and even weeks could be more like it

    I was going to watch a few other similar videos; but that might be too much information. Doing it is the better teacher I find

    Lovely light and composition. IMO the out of focus leaf in the immediate foreground is more of a distraction and could have been cropped or cloned out prior to the rest of the processing..Otherwise.. nice!

    Murray River, Mildura as you will never see it
    4] stitched in Microsoft ICE -- 3 files
    3]rotated and stretch in PSe12
    2] Lr5 edited -- I was going to leave it there
    1]added grudge and border -- just to use On1 LOL
    I have had a hard time getting this image to something how it was; but more importantly, how I liked it --- still not sure (??)
    questions and honest comments welcome

    Re: >> show us your editing.

    Bit of On1 magic + a little Pse masking
    'locking up the bush' -- edited from one file.
    1] did the masking in pse12 -- radial blur added in On1
    2] original raw file take so the whites were not clipped (just 2 photos taken
    3] lightened the blacks to show what was there and as I could see it
    4]Actually a lock on an irrigation pump electrics box --- would you have seen it as a possible photo while walking someone's dog --- a dog that cramps the photography style somewhat!

    Re: >> show us your editing.

    1] how I saw it
    2] how the camera saw it
    often less is better
    or what is left out is often the difference between whether it's a good or great photo
    In other words; ID your the subject and photograph that subject


    Tip for blacking out backgrounds:
    If you lighten the image by adding exposure you will be able to see the areas needing to be blacked out -- when done you just reset the exposure . In Lr5; I have custom brush with all setting from exposure to saturation set to -100. There are time two or more brushes are required

    In programs with layers; you just need to add a black layer with a blending layer and use the brush that suit the best.
    questions and comments/tips welcome

    I can never "see" the finished image; that just evolves along the fiddling way
