I Critique and Process YOUR Image – Episode 12: Zoran

This is episode 12 of the video series where I critique and process your image.

In this episode, I process an image from Zoran. This is a long exposure image that was accomplished with the aid of a 10-stop ND filter. The challenge is the ND filter gave the image a strong color cast.

I Critique and Process YOUR Image – Episode 11: Tuomas

This is episode 11 of the video series where I critique and process your image.

In this episode, I process an image from Tuomas. The challenge with this image is that the background in parts, is much brighter than the fore and mid-ground and I want to process it so it’s more balanced.

In the video, I talk about White Balance then I use the graduated filter and compare it to the brush. I also use the Targeted Adjustment Tool to better balance the sky.
