Very deep (nude)
« on: January 06, 2023, 23:36:51 »
I have been pursuing this image for a little while. Chance will have it, I have shot -for the first time in ages and by mistake- in jpg. Anyway, here it is.
C&c always welcome.

  Z6, 24-70mm 2.8 vr

Colours are very good, photographing nudes is exciting!

Lovely colours and tastefully done. The ribbon of highlights is a delightful touch.

Thank you all, much appreciated.

   There is a level of massage of the file to bring out the colors. Carefully done this time because it is a jpg.

Your predicament happens to any of us in due time :)

Convert the jpg to a 16bit tif and do everything there. Sometimes it can be helpful to increase pixel numbers by an odd factor and apply some basic smoothing first to reduce jpg-induced blockiness. From the massaged tif a new jpg can be made later.

Nudes in water reminds me of summer. Nice.

   Thank you Birna. I'll try your suggestion and hope I don't have to use it in the future!

   The original image was made a few years ago in the summer and with a smartphone. Finally I had the opportunity to try a similar concept. Because of the jpg I may have to try again...which I don't mind at all  :) This one has, as pictures do, the power to convey the memory of a very special moment and feeling.
