Re: Aug-Sep 2014 Merge Channels Contest

Interesting ~JeNsEn~. Not exactly how most are coming out, but a neat twist. I might suggest some color adjustments. Also maybe too dark in some of the areas (trees) meant to carry detail.

Re: Aug-Sep 2014 Merge Channels Contest

I am taking some advice from members and drawing from of the examples I've seen and liked here. Here is my latest...Not highres - just large enough to get the idea out, and still fit within forum's standards. i will post my Final Final on a link site to see it in all its glory (or flaws - whichever way you see it).

A little closer look and still under the 100K. I am liking this project a lot. I am seeing great things here, and am working towards implementing the best of the best renditions and ideas.

Re: Aug-Sep 2014 Contest Discussion

So sorry to post yet again... but fascinated by this contest challenge. Just wanted to say that I got some good advice from kuasar. If you were able to extensively clean each of these channels individually, as a single image, before doing the channel merge, you would get a very, very good clean starting image. I did a lot of this and it really helped. But I admit I could NOT stick with it and clean it all. I got most of the really bad artifacts, and got rid of a lot of my color aberrations to start the project.

I think it is a great start Foghorn002. Suggestion to burn or darken the areas outside of the main central focal point (people).

Mr G, I think you overdone a little but with painting in color mode so that tree trunks became green too and logs lost color variations and became all the same hue. And upper part of trees have hue shift towards blue.
