Sky Watch Friday

This is "Tall Erik" at the Northern Point of the island Öland in Sweden. Some of you are asking what kind of filter I use on my pictures. I always edit them in Lightroom first, and then - if it feels right, I use Topaz Adjust - wich is a plugin-filter in Photoshop. I really have a lot to learn, but it is fun to experiment.

The untopaz-version of "Tall Erik". He is quite handsome anyway ;)

Oh.. my neck ache! ;)

Evelyn Howard said...

Great photo - amazing what photoshop can do, but it needs to start with a great photo first to get a good result, so well done - it was a good snapshot!

Regina said...

Fantastic. Beautiful angles!
Love the lighthouse.

Happy weekend.

Kjempetøff vinkel og flott himmel og ja bare flott alt sammen.

A very tall fellow, he looks so good against the swirling clouds and the sky.

Fantastisk høydeeffekt, både med og uten filter!

Utrolig flotte bilder! Og så artig vinkel! :D

Kjempetøffe bilder! Flotte farger og jeg elsker sånne litt anderledes vinkler:)

You need to have a good snap shoot to have a good picture, The photoshop help but not take the photo.
You have a great picture! Well taked. The two images is beautiful.

Fotograf Trine Bjervig said...

Tøft bilde! Kul himmel og syns du har fått fram murstrukturen utrolig bra :)

RuneE said...

Det er kanskje å banne i kirken - men jeg foretrekker uten Topaz - den er mer "riktig". Men smak og behag etc...

ElinSire said...

Så knalle farger og kule vinkler! Helt rått!

Tanja said...

Utrolig kult! skyer og vinkel

magiceye said...

Lene: What a beautiful capture of the lighthouse and it was edit just beautifully. It certainly is a tall shot.

VALKYRIEN said...

Stønn! sier jeg bare! :)

Fascinating photo, I like the warm glow that Topaz Adjust gives it.

Dewdrop said...

Tall Erik is exceptionally handsome! What a lovely perspective, lovely sky... I love the filter too. Wonderful. Thank you.

*Niina* said...

MEN! Vad underbart, vackert och totalt fantastiskt! Långe Erik är verkligen lång och lite sådär "spöklig" i denna vinkel och med himlen bakom sig. Har aldrig varit där men har sett Långe Jan. =)
Tack för ditt besök, Lene och trevlig helg!

Pacey said...

This is a beautiful perspective and with regards to PS, I suck...have to learn them with patience. You did great and very effective. Thanks for the visit Lene. Have a nice weekend.

Erwin said...

Great composition, tall Eric is looking really great, ... it's like there is a lot of electricity in the air .... the 'adjusted' picture is very intriguing !!

Utrolig kuuuult bilde!!! Innmari flotte farger. Jeg redigerer også alltid først i LR, og kjører i PS etterpå. Er blitt like avhengig av begge programmene. :)

Beautiful photo also without
the filter!

Vita Stunder said...

Lene!!

Så underbart att ha dig tillbaka i bloggvärlden! :)

Jag har saknat dina underbara bilder.
Perspektivet i den här bilden är verkligen makalös!
Och sen topaz på det.

Jobbar du BARA i Lightroom?
Och var köper man plugin grejen?
Om du har tid att svara :)

Jag har det underbart bra!
Hoppas du har det gott också :)

Ha en fin kväll och helg min vän!
Många kramar Anna

donnie said...

super - prefer the untopazed one :))

Helena/Bildbloggerian och Fototriss said...

Underbar bild! Och jag gillar att du har lagt ut en före- och efterbild, så att man kan se skillnaden. Den är mycket snyggt bildbehandlad! Jag skulle också vilja ha topaz-filtret inser jag...

Hoppas du får en fantastisk helg!

Frank said...

An incredible tower and a great shot.(Before and after some Topaz.) Your town is so interesting and attractive.

irene said...

Hei Lene! Fantstisk flott effekt med "topaz adjust". Ser at det andre som lurer på det samme som meg, hvordan en får det til. Hadde vært hyggelig å fått et hint!

Jeg skal i skogen å lete etter traktkantareller i dag, og tar selvsagt kameraet med!

Ha en strålende helg!

Pearl Maple said...

Fantastic photo for sky watch friday and all the more fun for taking the angle.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

At this angle, the tower appears to be almost floating on a sea of clouds.

Ebie said...

Tall Erik is so tall, could it be like Rapunzel;s tower? This is a great photo!

Sharon said...

Magnificent!!!

storyteller said...

Marvelous photographs! Thanks so much for visiting my Sky Watch at Sacred Ruminations. It's nice to meet you ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

God of Another World said...

Excellent composition!

GAWO said...

Det var da litt av et fyrtårn. Slår Lista både i lengde og utførelse. Et kjempestilig bilde, og jeg synes det ble spennende med den vinkelen. Likte best det uten filter... tror jeg. Hummm... må kikke tilbake en gang til. Og så tar jeg meg tid til å kikke litt vidre nedover i bildebunken din. Du har så mange fine her. :-)

Takk for hyggelig søndagsbesøk hos meg. Alltid å hyggelig å få en kommentar fra deg.

AKO said...

Oj! Detta var riktigt häftiga bilder! :) Man får nästan svindel av lutningen också. Mycket passande redigering för motivet!

Tack för kommentaren hos mig förut! :)

Daryl said...

Fun, I did a similarly angled lighthouse shot a while ago ..
