Re: How to darken a picture!

well, A LOT of answer here...I really appreciate you guys being there for me when I ask! Really nice! Thanks a alot!

When going trough the pictures here I really like the idea of some of them, but they really look somewhat fake! Myabe mine isn't that good either! but something in that area is close!

admirer: It's ok, the contrast is abit to high...

LonK: This looks almost like the effect, but the contrast is slightly high there...It reminds abit of Dave hill effect...

graphics: it's too red, the effect close up looks to fake for my taste...sorry...

PanPan: some weird colors coming here...maybe try working with contrast or color balance to get a darker feel..

chillin: background is a bit light...color banding on the wall behind model...

berwin: too much effect...it looks fake, I'm afraid...I get some 70's feel over the outcome...not a bad thing though...

handmadegod: Looks nice, the lower part is too dark...the face needs abit ouf touching up...

schlinky: overall feel is good too light for my intention...the frameing is very good though! I will try out aversion on my own! thanks for idea!

elohssa: Wow, total makeover...too fake for my taste...nice experimental version!

PeterS: have tried every level in H/S, but It always looks fake and tempered with...and the fac egets abit grey...

RAVEN: version 2 looks good...a bit more retouching to the face and the light!

schlinky: ab etter version this...a bit flat in contrast again

thank you everyone for trying this out! I have looked on your versions and got really inspired to try again

cheers

Gerry
