Heavy edits

Do you guys love them or hate them? I like some of them, others I;m not so sure about.

Re: Heavy edits

First and third are my favorites. I really like the texture to the McConnells Mill photo, it goes well with the snow scene, the green flare on the mill is distracting though.

Re: Heavy edits

Thanks. I touched it up some and added one that uploaded incorrectly before. I could definately use more practice photochopping

Re: Heavy edits

I like the mill shot as well. I think there is some lens distortion as evidenced by the curvature in the edge of the building and foundation. Can possibly be fixed in Adobe camera raw.

Re: Heavy edits

Ah, good eye, thanks. I never saw that. Figuring out how to straighten that will keep me out of trouble for awhile

Re: Heavy edits

I like the third and the last photos the best. I don't think it's distortion but just the way the building is built.

Re: Heavy edits

I prefer light edits to heavy edits. And I don't like most HDR photos.

None of this is right or wrong, it's subjective. Different people like different things.

It seems pretty clear that many people do like HDR and heavily edited photos with "effects" and creating a painterly style, etc.

And there are many people who do not like that, and prefer more realistic photos.

But what the percentage breakdown might be, I don't know. Any guesses?

The people who edit magazines have to think about what their audience likes and make the decision of whether to go with more realistic photos or photos with effects. It must be a tough thing for them to decide. What I've been seeing in the magazines is some of both.
