With Topaz Adaptive Exposure

Posted by
john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 23 February 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The original of this image first appeared on February 9. As the result of watching Tony Sweet's "Fine Art" webinar on Topaz, I went into Topaz's Adjust 5 and applied Adaptive Exposure. This feature has a Regions slider that determines how much of the photograph is affected. It really helps in separating the foreground from the background. Topaz Labs is continuing to make tremendous strides with their plug-ins.

NIKON D700 1/100 second F/9.0 ISO 400 58 mm (35mm equiv.)

Interesting result as we don't get the feeling of a artificially processed image....

The foreground has really picked up in this photo compared to the one posted on the 9th. The processing is excellent. I have been considering Topaz. I think I should take a closer look at what they offer.
