  • Before-and-after stream treatment

    Here is a hand-held snapshot of a manicured stream I shot with a Nikon L810 while my daughter was taking photo class assignment photos with our Canon DSLR (working on motion blur).

    Shown is the unretouched original and the slightly cropped and post-processed version treated with Topaz Adjust, Clean and Simplify (layers reduced in opacity and blended together).

    Without any kind of retouching work the picture is looking more natural. Good one!

      What a beautiful picture!
      The Topaz processed version seems to emphasize local contrast, creating an HDR-look.
      Instead, I would prefer to enhance colors more than contrast. What about the following version?

        Thanks for your comments, just saw them. My own personal preference is to move an image away from a "natural" look into something more "artistic". Ironic, since I used to work in photojournalism... But a light treatment also works, thanks genf!
