Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today) con't

Another shot from Griffith today looking south toward LA (original plus post-processed with Topaz Adjust and Lens Effects for the gritty "end of the world" or "just another smoggy day" look). No dodging or burning, just presets tweaked to suit.

Then add a fake sunset (Knoll Light Factory) and grunge (Retrographer) followed by some more vignette (Lens Effects).

This is the type of work I enjoy best.

PS: I stood at this same spot almost 20 years ago...

That's very nice! What did you do in post-processing? Sorry about your weather. It's getting warm in LA again...

I stepped outside this evening and saw the Moon and Venus near each other. Shot with a non-DSLR Sony with tripod, about 1-second exposure, post-processed with Topaz DeNoise and Adjust. Composite shows different zoom levels, the greatest 12x.

some dodging, made an edit in Silver Efex to use as luminosity layer in PS. Created some specular highlights ... used C. Hollywood's 'freaky detail' method for sharpening (masked off with an inverted green channel mask)...

iow not much
