onOne & Nik

Posted by

In using onOne's PhotoFrame, I have been playing with reducing the opacity of the frame to allow some of the photograph to shine through.

NOTE: yesterday's B&W was not a conversion of the previous day's color shot. The conversion was of a separate photograph.

I like how the frame works. Seeing the image bleed through is nice. The green works well with the tones of the flowers.

I like the translucence with the texture showing...that adds another dimension to the image.
Nice experimenting you are doing lately, Jack.

I like the vignetting, as the curves of the oval make a lovely contrast with the straight lines of the wood. The green of the frame matches the green leaves perfectly, but I wonder if desaturating that green might work a bit better. It's quite a strong effect, as is. I'm torn as to whether it's overpowering or not.

Mind you, I'm not against strong effects. I'm just not used to seeing them on your blog. The experimentation is always worth the risk, though, I think. Certainly in this case.

And it was clear that yesterday's image was not the same as the one before it. But they were similar enough to warrant comparison, I thought. We really didn't think you were cheating by posting the same image twice. :) ;)

@QB: The actual color was picked from one of the leaves. With onOne's PhotoFrame, it's easy to desaturate it. For what it's worth, I often do a monochrome version of a prior color shot.

What an intriguing idea, to allow the form of the flowers to show through the frame. Lovely work Jack

Your processing abilities are so nice. A simple photograph turned into a work of art. Very lovely!

@Macrobaby: Thank you.

@john4jack: re: monochrome conversions: if the shot looks remotely worth saving, I'll try it monochrome. It has shocked me how many shots that are poor in colour turn out rather remarkably in b&w. But that's probably because I'm too timid when I work in colour... I need to learn to use all the crayons, as you put it, which is one of the reasons I love to look at what other people are experimenting with. I'm enjoying your archives quite a lot.

@QB: Thank you. I still have a bias toward B&W.

A cool experiment gone right. I like it.

I think the reduced opacity works well--might try reducing even more.
