photoblog image Onyar

Onyar

Just returned from  Girona, which is a photographers paradise!

This is a nightshot from the Pont D'en Gomez of the' Barri Vell' (Old Quarter), some of which dates back to the early Mediaeval era.

This is pretty much untweaked, just some minor level & curve adjustments. Oh, the Onyar is the river, BTW!

This is a great scene for night photography. I like how the shot is put together, but it needs some cleanup work to really make it shine.
Dave Carrington: Hi, Martin. What do you reckon I need to do? I took this without a pod: balanced on a bridge in fact!
I've noticed it looks less good on Shutter than on a print I've made...

I think its lacking enough sharpness/definition in the buildings and a little contrast. Would also be improved if the water was still but thats not something you can control is it? wink
Dave Carrington: Hi, Stan. Shot looks worse on Shutter than on my screen?! I've sharpened it already: thought I might over-do it...

Wow, this is amazing. I love the contrast between the jumbled buildings and the calm water.

With regards to the sharpness difference, thats quite common when photos are resized. You have two choices...

1. Make sure one of the sides is exactly 700 pixels long so that shutterchance does not resize the image and then sharpen to taste.

2. Oversharpen the image and hope it looks just right after the upload.

First option is much better in my opinion.
