On August 19, 1942, 4,963 Canadian soldiers landed on the beaches of Dieppe, Puys and Pourville under the guns of the Nazi occupying forces. For the Allies, this was the first large-scale military operation that looked forward to the liberation of France. The battle was brief and bloody: 807 Canadians perished in combat, 1,946 were made prisoners of war and only 2,210 soldiers returned to England.

A Beautiful Storm, landscape format, editing progression. Photos by Amber Maitrejean

1. As taken

2. Basic editing in Lightroom 5: straighten horizon line, highlights -100, shadows 0, white point +67, black point -10, contrast +2, clarity +7, vibrance +5, adjustments to the tone curve: lights +3, darks -5, shadows -5, sharpen 9, detail 29, luminance 11, vignette -14.

3. HDR edit, available to anyone on ipiccy.com, faded out by 30%, small adjustment to tone curve to add the shadows back in. I really love what HDR editing does to skies, bringing out a full tonal range in the image, and the way light appears on the water emphasizing highlights and shadows- making the wind appear on the surface.

But, I like them both. :-)

Voilà :-)

Edits.

Hi all.

I reblogged Amber’s picture in version 3 already some time ago. But I found the other versions, respective the editing process described in picture 2 quite interesting.

Version 1, the original, is quite dark. I didn’t think about it could have been so dark when I saw and only knew the 3rd picture. This HDR edit is fine. It adds almost a third dimension to the clouds. Purists might find it unnatural perhaps, this edit, indeed you will hardly see the white in the clouds and the dark indigo of the sky in nature. But who says it has to be natural? It looks good.

In picture 2 I like specially the grass and the water. Great, the difference between 1 and 2. So much brighter and so many details.

I’m not sure which one I would have preferred for publishing. Picture one not, I would say. Not so interesting compared to the other ones. Good, but not special like 2 or 3. Quite impressive here how a picture can win through the edits.

Cheers and stay tuned, until next week,

Hubertus

Heyyy! Thank you Hubertus! :-) What a happy surprise today :-) I always appreciate your thoughts. :-D Cheers TPS!
