Lined Walls

Lined Walls

The walls on the way to the Seed art installation, in The Core building at the Eden Project.

A new preset I’ve made in onOne Perfect Effects here, for use with high ISO images – it runs noise reduction first, then sharpens the result a little, then adds a slight vignette, and emulated film grain. The idea is to go from digital sensor nose to something that looks more like film grain, which tends to look a bit nicer.

Charlie and Seed

Charlie and Seed

Charlie looking at the Seed sculpture, in The Core building at the Eden Project.

This one took a surprising amount of processing. I wanted to bring out the texture in the Seed, to make it stand out, but anything that did that also made Charlie look worse. I masked out the left side of the image, tidying up the edge with the Perfect Brush, then applied most of the filters to just the Seed. I then applied another filter or two to Charlie by copying the mask and inverting it.

Walking Under the Cover

Walking Under the Cover

The walkway leading to the entrance to the Eden Project.

I used the Dramatic Light filter in onOne Perfect B&W for most of the image, but used Perfect Layers to mask out the woman’s head, and applied a bit of extra detail and desaturation to her hair in the Enhance module.
