Just a straight up portrait here, trying to give it a little punch. Probably too hot for many of you, Next one will be B&W.
Thanks for the feedback, Ken. Remembering that I was somewhat fatigued late night when I worked on this one, I revisited and repaired the areas of concern, and found a few hotspots as well as dust that I missed. Fixed the edges. Not much noticeable difference, but for those of us that look close, this version is now cleaner.Beautiful Jeffrey. As too hot, It looks believable and more importntly their are still gradations of colour, tone and saturation in the red towers, I don't like it when things get so saturated that you can't tell the difference between the fairly red and the very red but you have skillfully managed to avoid that. If I am allowed to nitpick the right hand end of the 2 towers seem to have a black line running inside the skyline. This could be the opposite, but usually unnoticed, side effect of sharpening which produces the usual white line seen outside of such edges. I could, of course be totally wrong about this and it could be a downsizing artefact or caused by darkening/ brightening colours in HSL or it could be natural. Whatever it is it doesn't spoil a terrific image. Ken
