Photo challenge

So I just took some photo's in studio today playing around with the strobes. Couldnt take as many as I wanted though since the freakin nikon adapter cord seems to be frayed but w/e. Heres the challenge:

I want to see how ya'll would edit these photos and see if its around the way I have edited them. Here are the links to the raw files

Re: Photo challenge

Dal, you need to show small jpegs as a preview. You can't expect people to download 4 RAW files without knowing whats in them...

Re: Photo challenge

It would be cool to see the ones you've done too. Sorry I saw your first one right after I put the message out. Any how they are so pix-elated that you can't see much. There is a thread here somewhere where they tell you how to save the files for the web.

I tried to download these and all I got was a 1/2 inch TIFF

Update.. had to change the extension back to .nef then it worked fine... ( I get all confused with all this modern technology!! There must be an app for that!!)

Re: Photo challenge

You asked. lol

3 Bar Sin Gradient mapping blending with an arbitrary grunge background (actually a remnant of a layer from an edit that I did earlier that was still in my computer memory; lol). Added HDR Script-fu to balance the darks and brights too. Used GML Matting (works in GIMP) for the extraction (and was a little lazy with it so not that great; could be done better).
