Low light recoverey

Hi All,

Me again. I set the D100 up to take some pictures of me riding with a friend behind the lens. It was a Tokina 28-80 F2.8 Lens, ISO set to 1250 and shutter speed at 125.

Well one thing I got wrong was the shutter speed - a little blur and a lot of noise because of the high ISO. Also we have VERY orange lights in our arena.

Fortunately I think I managed to recover it, have a look at the before and after and let me know what you think.

Cheers

Peter

Great job on the recovery. The only thing I may be tempted to do is make a selection of the top 1/3rd of the image (where the blue light is strongest) and make another selective colour change, trying to knock some of the blue out of the image.

Still, I did'nt think the re-emergence of the focus would be so dramatic, good work.

Thanks for the tip - I just tried that now and it looked quite nice - just did an auto-color on it and it did quite a good job.

Again - tutorials... one day I will get some done.

Peter

Peter, if you are new to colour evaluation - perhaps try my humble article:

before moving onto the masterwork by Dan Margulis:

If your eyes or monitor or viewing conditions do not show a colour caste - the files numbers will.

Stephen Marsh.
