Too much Viveza 2 (Nik Collection)
« on: November 11, 2017, 16:40:54 »
But somehow I like it.
Taken with the 105mm f/1.4E yesterday.

Another one with a less distracting background.

The high contrast and increased saturation bring out the construction, textures and colourful yarns in the hat.

The hat is better-positioned in the first shot; and the background is better in the second one; so this is a prime candidate  for some layer masking and background replacement!

The first one is much better. The second one tries to imitate film too much.

Thank you for the comment Ann.
Background replacement is way out of my pp capabilities!

Both have the same pp.
Just the backgrounds are different.

The major difference is that the woolen cap is in focus in the first and the skin is in focus in the second. Result is that the skin receives a coarseness in PP that looks like film grain to my eyes.

It really isn't!

And you might have a lot of fun discovering what you can do with Layers and Layer-Masks.

 :)

Meanwhile some simple Spot-removal might help to get rid of the worst of the distracting blobs in the background area of the first image.

Kind of surprise the 105mm f/1.4E gives such a difficult bokeh (picture 1).

That's because of the excess of Viveza 2 effect. Actually the bokeh was quite creamy.

Aguinaldo ,
I like both images, avoiding the  background becoming distracting can be easily done using the viveza control points

Thanks Armando.
I was very much attracted by the rendition of the hat and forgot about the bokeh in the first.

Quite delightful picture without the Viveza.
