See  policyofsubster

This is another shot from outside my house. See the 1st image HERE

This shot has been queued for today. If it actually gets posted, means I am too busy to actually post what I originally intended to post , another portrait with "normal" PPing with processing tips for my man Blain AKA Stardog Champion 

Anyway enjoy the image folks, I don't normally dabble into this type of photography but intend to over the next coming months.

Very cool shot subster. Feels like everyone in your neighborhood was abducted by the Galactic Cows. Has a real feel of impending doom.
Suby & Sinem: Yep the galactic cow is all to blame smile That had me cracking up with laughter when I read it this morning tongue
Love the lighting....moody shot
Suby & Sinem: Thanks for the comments bro,.

Nice one. Lots of sensation come when I look at it. If I can say that, I see on this photo the way I've been feeling lately. Does it make sense?

Nice shot with a really different look, the B&W with HDR turn this into a really impressive image.
Suby & Sinem: This as usual was me experimenting with HDR which funny enough I do not really like. Yeah I know I am weird, but gats to be the best in all things photographic (I wish), thanks for the comments

very Suby's style
i like your pping. nice neighborhood.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks bro, glad you like it.
See Suby.. NOW you are getting it... Very well done, I'd play with the midtones a smidge more, they look a tiny bit grey, but otherwise quite good.... I posted an image over on my blog especially for you! (it'll be up at midnight EST... so 2 hours after this comment was posted).

-V V-
Suby & Sinem: I will do that bro, Thanks for the comments.

Your car is badly parked!
Nice view of your "space". Early morning?
Suby & Sinem: Car too small for the overlord of the world, the Subters car is much much bigger smile (not my car).

Black and white HDR...looks pretty cool.
hey suby,

I just love the way the sky is in the pic,makes it look like a painting.

.. as i said at the first image, what would doubtless be a dull suburban street shot in colour, is transformed into an atmospheric shot with more feeling

This shot gives a whole different feel to the environment that you live in. The other was warmer and more inviting.

This kind of processing is always a fun (and often times maddening) experiment - definitely produces a brooding atmosphere for the shot. Something tells me that there's a bit more dynamic range available in this frame - perhaps some further experimentation may reveal a bit more shadow detail and expand the lighter values a touch.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Phil, I do agree that processing is fun. I have to look into what you point out about more range still available in this shot, will have a play with the image as soon as I can. Thanks for the comments, really appreciated.

Oh boy how long could you keep up good images, errmmmm .............. only 3 posts??? is this a lesson on how not to use HDR well? c'mon I'm sure you can learn how to use the software well. I've seen HDR done well by people on shutterchance, this is not one of them. For this image you will feel the force of my hundred hand slap SLAP x 100. Funnily enough you dissed HDR images months back and here you are using it..........hmmmmmm........... Oh yea I've been watching you guys for months. SLAP again because I think this image is awful and you could have done better, your devoted fan club seem to love it though.
Suby & Sinem: You crack me up. Yes I do not particularly like HDR but if you read the comments I made on the HDR collage:

"It's like this, I see some of the images out there being produced with HDR, I am still not blown away by it, but I JUST HAD to ensure the Subster knew all he could learn about this new form of editing. He just had to master it. Have I mastered it?"

So yes I have always said HDR is not my thing, but I also did say that when I did have the time I would ensure I knew all there was to know about this new form of photography. As they say out there, "Knowledge is Power" and as I want to one day rule the world, this is another ticked box in my quest for total world domination.

Devoted fan club? Amen to that, I wish & hope I have that, but as you can see from my post yesterday my "devoted fan" club let the Subster have it if they think I have overstepped the mark, for that, the Subster is forever humble.

I DEFINITELY suffer no "fools gladly in here".

Excuse the cynicism but I agree with enforcer. This is the old I'll comment on your site becuase you commented on mine. I haven't as yet spent time with HDR as it is a little to much the vogue right now but the subject you chose isn't the best Suby. 23 comments saying otherwise does nothing to change this. I suggest if you haven't try posting this in somewhere like You'll get a much more realistic evaluation thus avoiding the sycophants.

I'm presuimg you don't mind constructuve critiscm. Feel free to discuss further. Pet hate of mine the old comment spam for the sake of popularity. I shoot images because I want to improve, not to become popular...
Suby & Sinem: Mooch, pet hate of mine "THE OLD COMMENT SPAM FOR THE SAKE OF POPULARITY" See policyofsubter link, Please join if you indeed like honest feedback.

However since I know not many people appreciate my brand of feedback, I 1st have to build a "relationship" with the photoblogger before I can start dropping "Subster" style feedback. I ALWAYS say it as I see it.

I however do not want to ever offend anyone with my HONEST FEEDBACK. So I tend to keep it light on new blogs I comment on. Hope that explains that. smile Also see me response to the enforcer above.

Now to your comments. Now that is more my style of HONEST feedback I like. I do not expect everyone to like the shots I post (see my mini roasting on my post yesterday), but I do expect viewers to tell me why theY like or do not like the images they see, how I can improve, what they would like to see more of or less of. As to HDR, it is a new form of photography that truth be told, I really do not like, however, it is HOWEVER a new form of photography that I will not be a happy camper till I have mastered it.

I use this blog as a medium for my experiments, I sometimes get it right and sometimes get it wrong. Always feel free voicing your opinion when you visit Suby & Sin's house, but please NEVER assume I post comments on other blogs so I can get a "courtesy" visit and comment back.

Thanks for visiting & please do visit again.
Hey. I like the use of sepia tones here. IT's a nice photo and it's good composition. I find the white halos aroundt he buildings a little bit distracting where the mask looked like it was feathered. It looks a bit unnatural. It probably only shows up so much because of how dark the image is vs. a lighter image where it stands out less. But otherwise I like it smile
Hi Suby
I definitively love this serie of picture. You've a very good artistic sense to transform an ordinary view in something very strange, almost scary. Hope your home is much more sweet smile
Bravo once again !! And have a nice day

i love this!
I likey....."what a very very very fine house"

I am making a second comment based on what I've been noticing lately around the photoblogs...Too many people using this Photomatix HDR...all the images are starting to look the same. It's losing it's charm and getting old. It also seems to be looking more and more artificial. It's like let's take any old shot and make it look "cool" by applying HDR. It's getting over done...

There...I've said it and it's off my chest.
Suby & Sinem: Laurie, I agree with you, however I differ from you in one respect, as much as I do not like HDR, I will try my best to understand and learn to utilise the darn thing. I have been seeing HDR over the last year or 2 but have been putting off learning how to use it for so long, I want to be able to provide my prospective customers a wide variety of choices if they come to me for a commision or a shoot. Why pidgeon hole myself? There is a time & place for HDR to be utilised, as well as their being a time & place for editing of images to be done. In the world we now leave in though, If you do not find yourself moving with the techology avail. you will find yourself being the one left behind.

Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that I will now HDR or PP to death all my shots, I am just trying to learn how to effectively PP images so that when I need to call on these skills, I will only need dig into my arsenal of knowledge and pick what is needed.

Phew, got that off my shest tongue tongue tongue

Suby I went back and read some of the comments and your replies...You don't need to march in lockstep just because this or that is in lose individuality if you do that. Be an individual don't use HDR if you don't like it...set you own style, ultimately that is what will set you apart from the rest.

I know I am not there yet, but that is my goal to show my individuality through this medium. Not to have the latest in vogue treatments that anyone with a camera and a computer with fancy software can do even at the age of 10.

I saw a shot today that was was a Photomatix HDR redo of a shot done with a pretty low level point and shoot camera that the person wrote off as garbage a long time ago but voila! HDR it and it's amazing...Is that what this is about??? I think not. That is computer graphics, not art and not photography. In my humble Opinion.
Suby & Sinem: Laurie just finished replying to your comment above tongue
If you look at my archives, you can and will discover the learning processes I go though, What is my passion in photography? Taking that perfect shot with only the cameras help. So why do I tend to post PP'ed shots, cause i want to learn, I am very individuallistic in my opinions and do not follow the masses, I do however follow where my heart leads me to. Once agin, I will say I really do NOT LIKE HDR images, to me it's cheating, is it computer graphics? yes, but you know what, at the rate it is growing it will soon be called an ART. The purist ouit there are probably up in arms about HDR, but just like when the DSLR came out and the film enthusiasts said it was just a passing phase, how wrong they where, Film is now seeing as a dying art. I REALLY hope one day we are not looking back and thinking what happened in the days of non HDR shots, for me that would be a HUGE shame. I love those images that are perfect from the camera (always my goal). I hope I can continue to progress and develope myself in this area, but at the same time, I also wish and hope I can encompase every other form of photography into my work.

I think it's up to the indidual to decide where they will sit in the ever changing world of photography, I just wish it does not change to fast and go all HDR crazy or graphics crazy. smile After all I still have my 10 year plan on track of ruling the photography world then it's on to world domination tongue

Love the toning, great shot!
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Ashish.

The thing is any 10 year old (and even younger) can take a crappy picture now and use HDR (and other processing) and make it spectacular therefore basically putting us out of business so to speak. Who will need us if anyone can do it?

Just look around at all the blogs; they are all starting to look the same. With few exceptions. All you need is a camera, doesn't even have to be a good one, a computer, some fancy software and voila! (As for the software, most kids can hack in and get for free. I know of one kid who managed to "get" a very expensive program and set it up to run straight off the cd without installing it on the computer which is supposed to not be possible!).

My kids can run circles around most everyone I know with these programs and they aren't nearly as interested in computers as many of their friends. I watch them work and they are like lighting, what takes me an hour to accomplish in Photoshop they do in less steps, better, and in a fraction of the time yet they have no interest in doing it because it's nothing special to them.

They've been using computers and doing graphics since pre-school they learned how to design and build websites before they were in 5th grade as part of their curriculum. They make their own Mods, maps, and scenarios for online RPG computer games and such. My father taught my oldest son MS DOS when he was 3 years old and he could work it better than I could at 25.

These kids can build web sites, make flash movies, use every possible computer software program in ways not thought of before. To them it's just an ordinary, everyday big deal and they laugh at those of us that get excited over it and think it's anything special...they act like "yeah so what...anyone can do that." My oldest even does this annoying thing with his eyebrows when I call him in to look at something I think is really cool and amazing (and I'm not talking about my work here either). They are simply not impressed.

To me it's taking the true art of photography down in flames. I think there will be a return to the "old ways" since you cannot "fake" that.

I saw shots of flowers that were made too look like a paintins by an old master which is neither photography or art, just 2 clicks of a button on the mouse.

It just frustrates me...although when push comes to shove the people whose shows I go to see at galleries and such are pretty old school and their work, which sells for the big bucks, is typically not overly processed, but rather either film or digital that is processed no more than what you would do when retouching it as if it were film.

I've been frequenting some shows at galleries of late and that's what I've seen. A return to classic basics.

the PP'ing gives out a abandoned feel to the place. Like some weather warning was given out and everyone rushed into their homes. Is that the sun behind the tree on the left? (Because for some reason I can see rays being cast over the cars and buildings)
Suby & Sinem: I left that in there from the PP, I like the feel it added to the image. I am glad you like.

I think this image sums up England... boring, bad weather, fish&chips
an image open to intrepretation
Suby & Sinem: You hit the nail on the head there. I like your interpretation.

Can I ask you one question? Would you frame this image and put it on your wall?
Suby & Sinem: To answer your question CASPITAL YES, It actually is one of the images of mine I am looking at putting up in my sisters surgery, One thing with me, If I don't like it or think it worthy, I don't post it. Not into posting substandard goods.
Oh and regards to HDR, I've heard a lot of bad press about it and so when I put up a shot that's HDR I tend not to tell anyone, and guess what it's the shot that tends to get a lot of WOW's on my blog.

Cases in point....
Suby & Sinem: Done the same thing myself bro, I have slipped a few HDR images into the mix on my blog, Just when you point it out, people are up in arms.

I knew all but one of those images where HDR (missed the stall one). Not my place to point out if its an HDR shot or not, if the blogger wants us to know I believe he or she will tell

hi Suby

it is a nice shot in it self, for me it is just a bit to much manipulation on the picture.
It has almost something of a very clear painting. Especially the light up horizon line is almost a bit too much (for me, my subjective view...)


Suby & Sinem: Thanks Diya, not to worry, you will be able to breat easy with my next post, hardly any PP on the image smile

Thanks for the visit as always.

random sidenote that has nothing to do with this image:

Sorry suby, there was nothing under the feathers in that shot, just more feathers and her... wink
Suby & Sinem: Okay now you are talking tongue, maybe I will one day post one of those my risque shots I am always htreatening to post smile
