I'm still seeing artifacts in the hair, might just be because it's a fairly small image..can you try saving it at around 800-1000px wide?

I like the original shot way better than the edited one.

Nope. I actually didn't sharpen anything. After the first one became over sharpened, I just turned off my sharpening layers and uploaded it again. I do see a couple spots I missed with the cloning tool though.

Is this directed at me? I'm assuming you're talking about the first photo I uploaded. I didn't upload the original of this one. What about the edited one makes you like it less? Too processed?

this might help you for shooting skating in the future

sweet image...it's tempting to figure out how to finagle a high res out of you and then start making large prints of it and sell it under my name lol. Makes me want to go out right now and take some shots.

Just kidding. I don't mind giving people high res as long as they don't try to sell them. The photos I post are for personal entertainment, not related to my work, so I'm not really looking to make money off them. Plus, I have yet to find the right people who will want to buy them (that could be because I haven't set up a store for people to easily purchase them)

noticed adobe98, it's a really good idea to get in the habbit of saving web copies in sRGB, they'll appear normal in Firefox since it bases it's display on the embedded profile, but browsers like chrome, I believe IE, and Opera force their own conversion and it will appear improperly to people viewing it.

Let me explain my process since the EXIF data won't make any sense.

This shot was from a road overpass. I originally shot with my Tokina 11-16 2.8. However, I didn't like the distortion that the lens gave me as seen below:



Obviously this photo had to be an HDR in order to get the complete tonal range of the sky and the ground into 1 shot.

I decided to use my 85mm 1.8 instead which greatly decreased distortion. I then shot at my base exposure for the ground/river, and shot around 20 exposures which would allow me to stitch together a panoramic.

I then changed my shutter speed to expose properly for the sky, and shot another series to be stitched into a panorama. Then I combined both sky and ground exposures to come up with an image that could represent both the ground and the sky the way my eyes did.

After that, it was just a matter of color correction and dodging and burning to create focus on different parts of the image. I hope that helps.
