In Darkness and Solitude by Sortvind In Darkness and Solitude by Sortvind
Been trying out different darkroom stuff in Photoshop, and im very pleased with the result.
It is a waterdrop hanging there lonely :D
This has been done in photoshop; Curves, leveles, sharpen, different plug-ins, removed noise, added texture to the water.
Hope you like it! :boogie:
Comments and faves are most welcome :hug:

I use a plug-in named Noiseware professional. If you google it, you will find their homepage.
I think they have a trial you can try :aww:

The drop with the reflection on the water in movement looks really cool, that's a wonderful pic :)

Which lenses do you use?

Dette er ett av de beste dråpebildene jeg har sett. En ekstrem dybde. Helt utrolig. :faint:
Sepiatonen passer kjempebra, den fungerer veldig godt. Gjør bildet mer elegant på en måte. :D Komposisjonen er super. Vanligvis er dråpebilder midtstilt for en eller annen grunn, så dette er helt topp! Skarpheten er upåklagelig. :thumbsup:
Great! (:

I have one question. Why you don't have a reflection of the flash in the drop? maybe you can give me a tip :)
Reply
:iconsortvind:
Sortvind Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2006
It is actually, the white part in the middle...
I was just thinking if i should star to use soft filter in front of the flash to get no flashmarks..
So you dont think the white small flashmarks in my photos are disturbing?
Thanks for the support dear :hug:
