So… I'm going to cheat on
I'm not too keen on SOOC (Straight Out Of the Camera) with DLRs as… everything is being processed by the camera one way or another anyway (you can even get SOOC-HDRs now ;)), so I'll just put weeks 23 and 24 in a bag 😉 and use it as an auto-critic.
The shot on the right is the SOOC one.
I didn't like the composition, the white balance (tiny bit too yellow for me) and the clarity of it all. I would have converted it to B&W but… wanted to see how color went on this one.
Hence the shot on the left, with relatively minimal editing:
– Slight change in color temperature (
300) Tiny bit of contrast (+10)
– Some minor changes in tones
– Strong clarity boost (+86)
– Lens correction
And… that's it.
What do you think?
