#project52   #2012project52  [23-24/52 – SOOC-Architecture]

So… I'm going to cheat on +Daniel Graupner on this one.
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
– Reframing

And… that's it.
What do you think?

  1. I like your processed photo much better.  Personally, I am not a fan of SOOC.  Quite frankly, I don't see the point.  Every image out of a DSLR needs to be processed… period.  IMO, mostly in contrast and sharpness.  Did you sharpen your image?

  2. Thanks for your comment Darren. I did sharpen it a bit (+25 gain) and a tad of color noise reduction (+25 as well).
    But… my jpg seems really sharper than this version here on g+ :/.

  3. yeah, sadly, G+ downsamples images.  I noticed on a lot of my own images that the resolution has been almost cut in half.  Well, glad you sharpened.  An artery in my neck may have twitched had you said no.  🙂

  4. +Clement Biger The SOOC definition is a little bit artificial. Now, we can do a lot of things using internal tools (of the camera). If action is done in the camera, it is a SOOC, if you prefer Lightroom, it's not. For me the result is the only important thing to be considered, on the final display and I agree with you, the pictures are better on my iMac out of G+.

  5. +Tiina Niskanen. Well… that's something I had to work on twice before posting. The thing is, it looks to me like you can only do so when "sharing" right after uploading your batch of images, when you are offered with the standard g+ image upload tool. Otherwise, you are stucked with the 2 basic options: Sharing the whole album OR Sharing just one photo.
    But I might be wrong.
    Oh, and by the way, I do not like this layout much, as it totally screws with the intended composition, forcing people to click on the image to find the actual shot… but no other option for multiple photo sharing it seems.
