photoblog image Over Faffed....

Over Faffed....

Sorry but still 'puter less so relying on things that were filed away in the ho-hum pile on the portable. Up ont moors again and the old chestnut of a lonely tree battling the elements......sigh.....anyway I know Ive over fiddled this and will return to it when the uber pixel crunching monster puter drops through the front door, til then it will be a rag bag of flotsam that washes up at this shore.

very nicely faffed! mal
David Johnson: Chers Old Chum!
I don't what I like better. The sky. The wall. The tree. The grass. I guess it is everything combined with that great processing.
David Johnson: Thanks Michael.
Looks pretty good to me. Tree and sky very nice but the foreground grass is a bit indifferent
David Johnson: Its the overall woofiness of the wall that has me writhing about and gnashing my teeth
It might be a sub-genre in its own right, but this is a pretty good example. I'd be interested to learn just what faffing you did.
David Johnson: Oh blimey where do I start,did my usual dupe layer thn shadow highlighted to the extremes and changed the blend to darken to boost the sky and half an hour later for some inexplicable reason softened things up and forgot to history brush back in the sharpness of the stone wall.....DOH!! will do it when the new pixel cruncher turns up

And you call this a `ho-hum` shot? I call it `fabulous`. (:o)
David Johnson: Forgot to bring back the sharpness of the stone wall until I had flattened it and saved and lost my layers...doh....silly old g*t..will redo it as it should hev been, sometime.
Ha! You think this is over faffed? You should see my tree....now THAT's over faffed!! smile
David Johnson: Excellent bit of over faffing there DC!
I'Ll use the ubiquitous 'mystical' to describe this bit of 'faffing'. ;-) ;-) richard
David Johnson: More 'Misty'cal than mystical, fuzzy wall is not what I wanted.

lol, you have such a way with words fella and not too bad with the old cctv, what the hell is one of them David, sure has produced a fine image with a little bit of twiddling m8smile
David Johnson: Ah I warned you about the metadata before!!!!! Have bucket loads of new stuff I'm sticking on my portable HD, giving Stockport a thorough going over at the mo so I'll need my biggest Pshop duster to polish that lot up, if that a all is possible, Suns up so of for an hour of snapping before work.
Looks cool to me Maxy.

I am waiting for a new puter, a Chillblast Fusion Photo OC11 to drop through the letterbox! What are you waiting for?
David Johnson: Dell Quad core 3gbram 1 TB twin stripe,xcellorator and a 24" monitor...well I understand what a 24" monitor is.....
Don't worry about your computer problems David you have put up a fine shot here, I love lonely tree shots, especially with a great sky like this one.
