A CERTAIN LACK OF CLARITY

Sometimes I like my finished pictures to look one step removed from crisp reality.

A small slide to the left on the Clarity adjustment feature in Camera RAW can gentle a scene and downplay harsh lines and details, creating a soft and pleasing effect.

I love these silos. They look like friendly giants in a child’s picture book.

I want a Clarity Adjustment Feature for my life.

  1. Reads like a painting to me…really nice effect. I too could go for that feature.

    Ruby slippers? Those silos look like soldiers from Oz. some objects have great clarity while others don’t. I think that is why I noticed those two things. Ahhhhh, what do I know?

    One more adjustment to Minimalism.

    Those are great silos! Straight out of a William Joyce book.

    The red doors are so unbelievable. I know you didn’t but It looks like a color fill from photoshop.

    • You’re right…because I don’t know how to do that! In part I think it’s because those doors are metal (up against weathered wood) and therefore no variation or wear in the color. You can catch the shine in the first picture.
