Other Photo Blogs

If you haven't seen these before, check out the "Excellent Photography Blogs" column on the right side of my page.  There are some really good blogs out there and these guys know their stuff!  I recently added a couple more:  Brian Matiash's Blog and Mike Criswell, aka Theaterwiz.  Very cool stuff!

This is a companion shot to my previous "Vicious Pig" post. This is another food stand in the same place as the Vicious Pig and others. I had a few questions about how the food was at the Vicious Pig, but I had to tell everyone, "I don't know, I ate somewhere else." Well, this the "somewhere else." They have great cheese steaks here. If you are in the area, check it out!

I processed this one with my usual workflow, merged with Photoshop CS4, tonemapped with Photomatix 4 and post processed in Photoshop CS4 with the Nik plugins. This time I used the bleach bypass, duplex, tonal contrast and vignette filters to varying degrees. The I bumped up the saturation overall, reduced the noise with Noiseware Pro and then sharpened everything but the sky with Nik Sharpener.

Oh and one other thing, the brackets for this shot were all jpgs straight from the camera instead of raws.
