Cartwheel sequence

Cartwheel sequence of my girlfriend. My first attempt at doing a composite sequence. Sorry about the poor image quality. It was from single shot jpegs with too high ISO and then converted to pseudo HDR ;O)

    Nice picture! hehehe ;o)
  • LAYeiser 7y

    Thats cool. I like it!
  • Romford Tony1 7y

    great idea nicely done...........
  • Andy Graham 7y

    Obviously over processed and the subject colour does not match the background colour.

    Apart from that, and you know that already, i'm actually impressed.
    For a first try at a process it isn't bad. Never done this sort of thing myself but I know the many little traps in processing.

    I get a good feeling from this image. It's bright and she's happy and full of joyful life, cartwheeling around.
    The major distraction to me is the colour of the sunlit blotches on her legs. Really orange and not seen in the background. Dappled sunlight is not the go for this type of shot. Next time gadget.....

    The flow of the shadows of her body against the sky is really interesting and though I am sure that this is an accidental effect I'm equally sure that it can be exploited in other images to give a "different" feel to a pic.
    Remember how you did it.

    As a sequence shot this is not the best simply because her technique is sloppy. Ya gotta use experts.

    Apart from that It's a real smile:) shot!

  • Cyrus Hodivala 7y

    An interesting sequence with the action nicely frozen (hence the nice high ISO) The tonal mapping makes the overall effect seem a little false but it is a good first attempt. You have a nice series of expressions with three nice poses in the composite shot. The sunlight through the trees causes an interesting lighting effect and the models expressions are lovely.

    Generally a great first effort for pseudo HDR. Have you tried something like Photomatix HDR pro for more realistic tone mapping.

    A great Effort - keep it up!

  • Alistair Merrifield 7y

    I like the flow from the left to the right. The composite of the three looks great.

    The background sky seems patchy - there seems to be light and dark areas. Is this a feature of the HDR process? i agree the blotcy skin is a bit off putting - maybe next time in the sun?

  • Frank 7y

    Funny idea and interesting composition. The pseudo HDR adds a nice pseudo realistic touch to the scene it almost seems as if she had been photographed in front of a bluescreen and then put into the scene - but in a good way :)

  • Phillip Evans 7y

    thanks everyone for the comments!

    Over processed.. yes... although i wanted it to look like this, however highlights are overdone, i was in a rush as usual to get to bed heh.
    Lol's about the comment of her technique :O) I will be sure to tell her to try harder next time! heh heh

    I did use photomatix to take this shot and yes its not the best effort for HDR but the original photo quality was poor, need to plan ahead and use raw really. I could have make it look more realistic but i quite likes the false look of the image however i agree that the highlights are too strong.

    When using photomatix you can change the tone mapping settings so that the merge in the image from the normal exposure to a darker exposure is spread over a shorter space or over a larger area making the gradient in the sky. I chose thse settings as I think it gave the photo more mood :O)

    How rude! This is the first time I've done a cartwheel in ten years! Give me a break. Besides the picture was very improptu and 'just for fun' So there. ;p
  • bealahoz 7y

    I'm really not sure how I feel about this picture. It's interesting and fun looking. But I'm not too wild about the colors though. Some parts look like they're burned out and others like the bottom part of the rightmost figure the colors aren't consistent.

  • Phillip Evans 7y


    the colours are not consistant because the trees shadows being cast on the subject. Lots of branch shadows etc :O)

    I really need to sort out the blotchyness. its looks worse in small view but didnt look so bad in large view, still needs sorting though
