Image Enhancements

There is nothing better then taking the perfect picture. Sometimes the world does not cooperate though. Low lighting on a cloudy day, a poor performing flash, incorrect or less the optimal camera settings, event spectators and many other normal everyday occurrences can diminish the effect you where looking for. Sometimes a poor picture is just a poor picture, but sometimes a poor picture can become a great one.

Over the years, I have enhanced many pictures and have been very pleased with the results. Again, an enhanced picture is just that, a picture that has been altered from the original image. An enhanced picture should never be passed off as an original. Besides, if you went through all the work to make the picture great, why not boast a little about it.

These images where created by blending multiple pictures together. The end result tells a story that will be cherished forever. Click on an image to enlarge.

The final image of the Tornadoes team with titles and background was created by extracting the people from the original picture and replacing the background with the eye of a tornado. Finishing the image with team name and date make this team picture one that will be favorite for years to come. Click on the image to see the tranformation.
 
Not everyone was present on the day the Angels wanted to take their team picture. No problem, just add them in later. The picture of the 2 girls that where added was taken on a different day then the team picture. They posed with one of the team that was present on the day of the first picture. This helped with blending all the girls together. Click on the image to see the tranformation.
 
Any picture can be transformed into an artwork by applying different filters. These pictures where transformed into watercolor paintings. Click on the image to see the tranformation.
 
When reviewing some pictures taken in Ireland, I was really disappointed with this tree lined path. It was really an amazing view, but the camera did not capture its true serenity. The end result, though not great, is much better then the original. This is a good example of just how much information is stored within an image. Coaxing it out takes a little time, but is rewarding.
