I answered that kind of comments for a few times, but still, here you are, saying m that this is overdone hdr? Make some effort and read comments below before you chose to criticize my work. So once more, for all who love to play smart. Yes this is overdone hdr, yes sky is not perfect, yes this image is grainy, but as I said, with my perfectly clean original in pocket, I THOUGHT that some old trolleys will look ordinary at fancy photo. So i over edited this one, cuz it seems to me that some old , rusty trolleys really shine in the photograph of same quality as they are.. about 5500 likes on DA facebook page, and 1384 faves here, prove me right. I do not ask you to like it, but my rule is not to say bad stuff if i do not like another peoples art, and i call it respect. And off course, fell free to look at my gallery, where overdone hdr is not usual thing.I wonder why...
I understand where you're coming from, but I'll say this: don't judge me for the fact that others have said this before me. I'm not obligated to read all the comments before I express my own opinion.
Second: In my opinion, if the only thing that makes this photo "interesting" is the overdone editing, it's not a good photograph. If you couldn't have found any way to make this an interesting photograph other than the effects added to it afterwards, to me, that's trying to make up for bad photography. I'm not saying Photoshop or any kind of editing is bad... hell, I Photoshop the shit out of my work, but I sure as hell make sure I capture something interesting before I decide to even get it on my computer, let alone open it in Photoshop.
Just my 2 cents.
I do not "say bad stuff" about your art, and I do respect your art – I simply stated my opinion about it.
Well, you just said bad stuff And, i looked at your gallery, so you capturing an interesting stuff is not that probably as you said. I see a lot of average portraits, not at all interesting or in treatment or by expression, so that is my opinion, should i state it on your photographs? Because it is mine and it must worth a hell. And, you weren't obligated to express your opinion at all. I never do that kind a stuff, so i am pissed of when some haters come to my page, to express their opinion. This site is all about sharing i think, for everybody to find something to love, not to hate. And one more thing, i hate rules, if you follow rules, you'll done nothing. So "overdone"? Sure. Is it average? No.
Damn, at first glance i thought it was done by charcoal or something similar. but this is a great picture. the way the manipulation makes the scene look like it's still raining along with it being blurred helps bring that idea more up front. but i don't know if that was your intentions but it might what makes this photo great!
