Sailing Out

Uploaded: June 20, 2012


In Baltimore yesterday. The Tall Ships had been moored there for several days in commemoration of the War of 1812.
At noon, the sky was hazy, overcast, and we did not have the best vantage point, so my photos were uninteresting.
But with a cloud texture overlay from OnOne Photo Frame, things were quite improved.

Exif: F Number: 6.3, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/2000 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 270.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 7D

This was the photo after I struggled to get some contrast, clarity, and sharpness, but BEFORE the OnOne Frame texture overlay. #1470261

Terrific final composition with the texture overlay, Michelle! It really makes this image pop! I keep forgetting about this filter, and your work with it is part of the reason I purchased the whole suite!! #10191408

I should say so they quite improved!! The ship and colored flags really pop of the clouds now!! #10191663

I too really enjoy seeing the before and after on this image. The clouds really add a wonderful dimension to the scene and I like the overall tones as well, those touches of color in the flags on the tall ship add a nice focal point! #10195006

Deborah C. Lewinson level-addict June 21, 2012

Ditto Lindley! The result is a powerful and beautiful image, Michelle!

Great DD work Michelle. I have the OnOne Suite and have played with it some but my time constraints have hampered really delving in. It is amazing what we can now do to improve our presentation. This old dog has got to learn some new tricks. #10197110
