Man's best friend
« on: June 11, 2017, 03:45:53 PM »
Hi Gang. Got a fun one. Did a Curves layer and then a B&W adj layer with the Default settings. Should I straighten this image or leave it as is? Wonder if he has a treat in his hand for his little friend?  ::)

Shadow, cute photo and a nice change of pace. I'm not sure about the straightening as most likely that is how the picture was taken. I will let some of the others give their opinion on that.

IF you straighten it, be sure to straighten a copy of original and upload with the restore.

Thanks all. Couldn't tell for sure about the original. Heaven knows I have plenty of off-kilter shots.  ::)
So glad all of you are generous with your thoughts and opinions! Will put up a WIP soon and Lynn, will probably do what you suggested. Hadn't thought of straightening the original Kiska ... thanks!

WIP here. Lots of healing, borrowing/jumping to new layer etc. Anything stick out? Back at it ...  ;)

That little fox terrier reminds me of my 1st dog when I was a little girl.  We called her Trixi. Lovely work thus far. :)

A couple of things I noticed:  The hinge from the door on the left was omitted and the dark shadow across the top of the picture was probably from sun hitting the extended porch.

Maybe darken/burn the man's face, shirt, and top of overalls a bit so he blends in better. Otherwise coming along nice.
