I’ve gotten a few comments about the seagull that I converted using Topaz Simplify4 and one that struck me was that the sky was too blown out; not dark enough. Well I revisited my gull buddy and realized that I had fixed my gaze on how the gull, boats, and water turned out so much that I neglected other bits of the image. So I went back and did it again with the initial conversion being about the same as here except this time I did some burning of the sky to bring it back as well as returning a little more detail to the overall image. Here we go again – the original, the first conversion and the second conversion.
What do you think? I appreciate your comments.
