A Morrocan in Marrakesh by RAPH

purmusic: Happy New Year, Raphael.

Best wishes for the upcoming year to you and yours.

Now then, your image here..



Hope you don't mind, and here is the image worth my next thousand words:

"A Morrocan in Marrakesh" - Reworked

The main point was the crop.

The additional editing/post processing (a tutorial by philcUK, namely; "Faking the HDR thing...") provided a nice assist in bringing out a lil' more detail and increasing the contrast/deepening the shadows.

Creative food for thought, and..

Nice shot.

In the shadows by coram9

Eubeen: I like the softness in the photo. Nice lighting or should I say shading to highlight the mushrooms.

za4em9: Wow! this one is quite interesting: I like the amount of background detail you left in: adds enough interest to the image to generate an air of mystery. And the shroomies are glowing softly and perfectly.
