The Rind Series – Part Two

Here’s the thing . . . I seldom play with all the photo manipulation tools I have.

Whenever I do, I promise myself to get to know, really know, all the options I have at my disposal. You see, it’s not just a matter of applying filters; you can combine them, layer them, blend them, and do all sorts of stuff that creative types call . . . creative applications.

Instead, I am more likely to revert back to the original, even as I recognize the possibilities of stretching one’s comfort zone.

But, that’s not here, and that’s not now. So, continuing with the clementine rind manipulation . . .

The following processed images are from four different shots. The four shots look pretty close, and without serious scrutiny, no one would notice the difference. 

Here’s one of the originals.

And here are three different filters applied to it.

This next one, if memory serves me right, is something meant to resemble a Daguerreotype process. I think. I seem to remember this being it (I noticed the weird name) but I’m old . . . I could be mistaken.

And this next one is almost, but not quite, a straight-up B&W treatment.

This next one is also an ‘older’ type developing process simulated by one of the three programs I mentioned in the last post.

This next one may appear to be a copy of the original, but it’s actually been process through Topaz, and subject to the artistic/curly option they have.

It does a bit of Simplify, but it also add swirls to replace details. Subtly applied, it’s likely not visible unless one clicks on the picture for the larger view, and even then, if your browser window is small, you need one more click to get the full 1280 width resolution.

It looks better on some photos than others.

After a while, some of the styles begin to look the same . . .

Well, a rind is a rind, but since I have it, here’s one more treatment.

When I have a chance (soon), I will do a review of the various programs I use, but not here, and not now.

Astute persons might have noticed these doodles, and correctly surmised they hold some significance for me, and perhaps for humanity at large.  

If you click on the doodle, and nothing happens, this is the link it’s supposed to go to: https://disperser.wordpress.com/2011/12/26/palm-vx-and-i/.

    Interest subject for a texture study. What would the world be without texture? Unthinkable, actually.
