Repeat After Me…

It’s been a while since I’ve posted something with an obscene amount of colour. This has been a conscious decision, as I know that when I first started with HDR processing, I went a little overboard with my saturation slider. However, I feel that this image is one that benefits from a large dose of colour, and I really tried to amplify the awesome pink graffiti on this old brick wall. I wanted the splash of colour to be the first thing people noticed and then let their eyes drift upwards to the spraypainted quote.

This abandoned warehouse in Niland, California was a great find. I’ve already shared a few images from this location, and I can’t wait to keep leading you all on a tour of the place πŸ™‚ Oh…and I apologize for the unavoidable F-bombs present in this frame. Hard to avoid them sometimes in places like this.

I agree, Heath. The saturation boost really makes this image pop! What’s an “f” bomb? πŸ™‚

2 F bombs and counting πŸ™‚ Great Image Heath, I don’t think it’s over saturated at all, there’s a dreamy quality to the processing, really dig it…

It’s saturated, but not too saturated. It works very well! I also really like the sharpening in this shot! As you know, I have had similar issues with over saturation and have tried to desaturate, if anything, in Photomatix and bring it back up with the vibrance slider.

Great photo! What a captivating shade of pink. Not sure where else you’d want to use that colour other than on a brick wall…you amplified it perfectly imo.
