First things first : Take 2 on Week 3 processing
When I published my image for Week 3, I was uneasy about an area of blue sky which had taken a green hue after the solarising process. Although I had fiddled with the image to try and fix this before hitting the Publish button, the result wasn’t satisfactory and in the end I left the image as you saw it last week. Not long after publishing, I realised I should have used the cropping tool to overlay some clouds on the offending patch! Duh! When a few comments – (well, a lot – just as well I am not too sensitive!) came back confirming the green tinge was not a good look, I had to take action! So here is the reworked image…
Now, let’s move on to Week 4!
Image Processing 4: Cyclonic wind
I wanted to be a bit more daring for this last one, and having set the scene last week with my “Storm brewing” image, I now finish the progression to a fully blown cyclone, something the Far North Queensland region can experience from December to March.
I played around with the Distort filter… you really can go overboard with that one and create gigantic swirls. But I restrained myself and set the Distort/Twirl filter at 126°, to give a sense of the cyclonic surge arriving on the pampas field, leaving only one pampas head still standing straight.
Looking forward to your comments!
