Snatching Victory From Defeat ::

I shot this several years ago when I had my Nikon D50. I ran across this scene and shot it with the 18-55mm lens with a polarizing filter as well as a lens hood so I got some pretty significant vignetting. For some reason I saved the image to the computer without really giving it much thought although I did look at it once in a while. This morning I was looking for something different to post and decided to play around with this in OnOne Software's PhotoTools. Here is the final result:

And here is the untouched original:

Quite a bit of difference!

Another Holga Photograph ::

Earlier this evening I added another 4 gigs of ram to my computer so I've been doing a bit of speed testing so I worked a bit on this Holga image. The original negative was scanned to a 16 bit digital file of around 220 megs and then converted to black and white in Photoshop. I'm pretty happy with the speed gain from the extra ram.
