Your options are limited; the fog is an opaque item and post processing can only do so much. You can enhance or reduce the impact of the fog by adjusting contrast. It may or may not help much, it may impact other parts of your image. but effectively, the fog is turning the image into a very low contrast image, so increasing contrast can reduce it's impact. ...

I asked Dan to answer your questions. Here is what he wrote: "Anything prepared with color fidelity in mind is best viewed in a graphic arts viewing booth or, if none is available, sunlight or equivalent. That said, one shouldn't take a product printed on an offset press too seriously as there will be unavoidable slight variation between copies. The poster ...

An important part of that look is the lighting, which is most likely achieved by shooting during the golden hour. You can also tell from the lack of harsh shadows on the subject. Besides that, I see a green/yellow predominance in the tint, probably reproducible by white balance correction. I did a quick experiment using GIMP, and using color balance ...

"Save for web and devices..." is all about file size management. It's hard to argue that a 45MP image (2:3 aspect ratio with the long side at 8191) is slightly too small for a web page (yet, at least). And convenience, I suppose, since it offers one-stop shopping for a bunch of things that would otherwise be separate menu options. You can use Image→Mode... ...

Use the "Lens Blur" filter, which is basically a variable diameter blur function that a) avoids the effect of the focused object bleeding into the background and b) uses a more realistic kernel which more closely resembles an out of focus background. You can select the area you want to remain sharp in advance, and then tell the filter how much the rest of ...

You can reverse-engineer the coloring in Lightroom. In the following copy I simply white-balanced on the subject's shirt, resulting in this "less-golden" image that looks more likely true to the original color. Lightroom indicates that the transformation "back to normal" involved significant color shifts towards blue and magenta (-15 temp and +11 tint).

A way I always found intensifies the stars in my astro photography is to introduce a bit of clarity - really makes the stars pop! Also have a play around with the colours in the luminosity sliders as this always works for me. Hope this helps :)

I don't think the original photo was produced using only global white balance adjustment. It appears to have been produced using mixed light sources (fill strobes not matched to the ambient light temperature) and/or some local adjustments as well. This can be done by selecting various areas in different layers and altering the color for that specific area. ...

You can certainly make multiple prints from developed negatives — in fact, that's why the photo lab gave you those negatives in the first place. It's also worth nothing that especially with black and white, decisions made as part of the printing process can have a major effect on the result — in today's digital parallel universe, the negative is sort of like ...

I want to corroborate what chuqui said above and add a bit more detail. Fog works like adding white to all pixels, and it reduces both your sharpness and contrast. Any algorithm that tackles one of these two can be helpful to you. The classics are overall contrast, unsharp mask (try a large radius then a small one) and smart sharpen. But there are also more ...

Step 1: Duplicate layer As we don't want to do any destructive editing, make sure you duplicate your layer (Layer>Duplicate Layer) and rename it. Quick Selection ToolStep 2: Selection If your foreground detail is out of the fog and it's the background you want to clear up you'll need to do a simple selection so the foreground stays as is. The Quick ...

You can improve the image you capture by upwards of 1% (very nearly 2%) in quality by using a polarizer if there is fog without much overcast, and perhaps by an additional 0.05% using an enhancing filter to cut the excess blue a bit. Anything more than that means shooting in the weather you wished were happening at the time - trying again another day, or ...

This image may actually feature very little Photoshop or post-processing from any computer software at all. It may simply be taken with lights gelled to the appropriate color, and with the lens defocused.

Besides the obvious Lens Blur it looks like it was overlayed with a Gradient Fill layer using a custom color gradient, or the overlay could have been a layer containing a few coarse color splotches: yellowish on bottom, bluish left, and purplish right.

I don't think there is anything particularly special going on. It doesn't take multiple captures and HDR to explain the pictures you show. You do need decent sensor dynamic range, but not excessively so for a good modern camera. These picture seem to be taken a bit before dusk. That and the overcast sky accounts for the flat lighting. Since the ...

you have two choices the first method use software (photoshop) shoot from the same angle using your tripod (preferable) - time laps shoots. or shoot when you can see the street is clearer as much as possible some shoots. now combine all your shoots in photoshop using Auto-align and median tool. for more information please see that video ...

First and foremost, when it comes to astrophotography, to improve SNR (and, thus, improve signal) - stack! Stack, stack, stack. Total integration time, the total exposure time across all the sub frames you gather, is of paramount importance to improving image quality in astrophotography. Most beginners shirk on getting the necessary minimum amount of ...

The folders panel represents the actual file structure in Lightroom. Photos will not appear from subfolders unless you turn on the "Show Photos in Subfolders" option. This option is located under the "+" in the upper right corner of the folders panel. When this option is toggled off, you must select each folder to see the images in that location. This ...
