    Default Sail Boat at Changi



    Shot with XP2. Scanned with Diamge Scan Dual II as color negative. Converted to B&W & added some vignet & barral distortion.

    Looking for advice in burning & dodging.

    I dodged the sky where the sun is, down towards the boat. Dodged edges faceing the sun as well as the pavement on the right.

    I still feel the boat is flat. What should I do?

    Suggest adjusting backlight and bloom (e.g. using Photoscape) to make the boat stand out more.
    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    Think the problem lies with the overcast sky. Though PS can do wonders but getting that best shot really depends on the actual weather conditions

    thanks zaren, but i m looking for a editing of ray shining on boat in a cloudy day kind of idea. if i "brighten" the boat overall, without adjusting the cloud, will it look too artificial?
