Would have been better if the photo was cropped to concentrate more on web. Otherwise noticing web is difficult. btw nice composition.

Oh its not something I created intentionally. The effect is a combination of flash and narrow DOF under low light conditions. It looks like the flower has been added in PS on a blurry background.

Hi Team-BHP,

This is a photo taken of clay modeled Ganesha in late 60’s or may be early 70’s. This is from Udupi. For Konkani speaking guys in Udupi, this particular Ganesha is an auspicious one. The guys from Udupi dist' might recognize this photo.



The source was given to me by my friends dad, he requested me it can be retrieved to a certain extent. So I tried my hand on the restoring part of Photoshop for the first time. Came out ok I guess, any ways my friends dad loved it.



So from photo I got it to photo 2. Later my friend’s dad, an old timer who had seen this photo personally said me that it had a grass base, sky background n thejas in 2 or 3 colors behind Ganesha. So did the third photo from the second.

There is one word for what he did: Restoration. He salvaged an old color print and digitized it. Looks pretty decent to me.

Restoration is done very well. But the last part is too cheesy, looks like a calendar sold on car street (Ratha Beedhi) in Udupi. I am from this area, but I can't recall this Ganesha, but that's hardly surprising, I am not religious at all.

Hi Samurai Ji,

Even i like the second one, as i had mentioned my friends dad is an old timer n like the calender way, so made the third one for him, since he is a foto frame maker n he is from Ratha Beedhi, so no wonder his taste is like that.

N Samurai, every on here were talking about your office in Manipal, can I know where it is? Just curious to know thats all, nothing personal.

j_j,

Liked your work. I hope you don't mind if i put in my opinion. I feel it would look better if the sky was not as bright as it is now.

Thanks, but why should iso matter? Since it is a day shot, I guess it was at the usual 100.
