I think the bigger point is... why would you want to know?

Why is that a bigger point? I have a right to ask a question and that should neither offend anyone. nor indicate anything about me but an interest in the answer to my question.

Hey man, I don't care if you ask or want to know. I was only wondering why would you want to know how that person achieve a halo-ed highpassy image? It doesn't look a thing like Dave Hill.

I digress, and sorry if I offended you. I didn't mean to, or the poster of that image.

OK, no offense taken.

For the record, I use a touch of Lucis Art in portraits and find that folks will pay more for the result. When I sell landscape images at fairs, people will choose HDR 12:1 over straight single exposures.

As a result, I am interested in anything that affects the image even if it seems heavy handed, because I am always interested in something I can use, albeit on a layer at a reduced opacity.

Re: The demystification of dave hill! let's all he

Hey Don.. It is done by:
goto highpass on the image and put it on the blend mode softlight/overlay etc.. each one will make it a little stronger. I learned a little trick the other day so you can see it in the preview..
Try putting your image in Overlay or softlight first then bring up the `Highpass filter and then whe yo push up the effect you can see it right away on the image instead of having to wait and see what you did after you press OK...
The only thing is , is at 0% your image looks like it would on overlay so you cannot really see wat the image looks lie with no effect..
Hope that makes sense.
Put the duplicated image through all this.. not just a layer...:+}
DAve Hill says he uses a lot of sharpening which he may do high pass but in small steps b/c all at once can look really ugly like the image the poster posted..
of course that is only my opinion.
Either way looks nothing like Dave Hill.
Most people here do not realize that a lot of their over worked images may look good here or on the web, but printed they will look like crap if your not careful...
Hard to print blacks and shadows very well.

You can always mask the halos out if you love the high-pass look.

I had taken at face value that the poster used No sharpening as he/she said. The High Pass Filter is commonly used for sharpening and has some advantages. I thought maybe this person had come up with some other approach.

Thanks for your inputs!

Don
