Thanks a lot Samu. A compliment from you is like from a critic.

I just love to post process photos to this kind of look - an old photograph you might accidentally find in one of your college notebooks, not properly preserved, nor kept in an album.

This is the original unprocessed photo

....and here is the digitally remastered version of the old photograph... (Sorry I exceeded the 20 minutes limit for editing the previous post)

Awesome processing! Do you use filters?

Here is one I shot long long ago last year.

Thanks...! If you mean photo filters in PS, yes. I used Photomatix and Photoshop CS4 to process the last picture. It has got several color/curves corrections with layer masks, as well as some high pass filtering for the clouds. The Rocks portion is blended from a pseudo HDR processed from the original RAW file.

TG, no it isnt an old photo, instead, he post processed it to give it that retro look.

Here a few more I shot last early morning. And last pic was also taken last year.

FP, I too like your previous set of shots. Very different and has a different feel to it. Very well shot and processed.

@Furioussphinx
Oh Ok, I get it now! When I read that post from Clevermax, I actually thought that he had remastered the old file to the new digital image and I was like, Wow!

@clevermax
It's still wow But not as wow as it would have been if you digitally remastered an old photograph to that look!

A rather ordinary click, yet i enjoyed it, hence the post..no pp

Thanks for the comments mates!

I think I need to clear off some confusion now.... TG, It is not an old film photograph, I processed the RAW file to give it that look... the small image in the middle is how the original RAW file would look like without any processing:




And for the digital remaster thing, I was just joking (remember, I had put a smiley there ), I processed it from the same RAW file which I used to generate that old photo.

I used Photomatix and CS4 to process that last picture. Made a pseudo HDR from the RAW, it never looked great but I liked the rocks in that when a low value for the light smoothing was selected - the original had this portion too dark. So I manually blended that portion alone from the HDR to the original image, using CS4. Then further processing was done in CS4, some color/curve corrections, treatment to sky (highpass filter) and water (that blue color to give a Seychelles beach effect), straightened up the horizon and mostly, that's it.

OK, now you are pushing it. What made the earlier shot so great was the human emotion, it is a hard thing to capture. You were able to capture a bunch of students preparing for something with intense concentration, some in focus, some not, and the varied colors were just right on.

benny, the landscape is a good candidate for an HDR/exposure blend, you should have tried that. sky is washed out and some of the pic is too dark.
